THE CROSS OF ST ANTOINE
Ain't life hard when you're a Watcher? No sooner has Dawson got himself a beautiful girlfriend who revolutionises his outlook on life than she gets murdered. In front of his eyes. While investigating her death further, Duncan finds an ancient gold cross on display in the Thorne Museum of Antiquities, the very same cross that had been stolen from under his protection nearly two hundred years before. What's more, when he sees the mysterious Armand Thorne, Mac realises that this is no art collector - at least he wasn't when they first met all those years ago...
