Life has been pretty great for Sebastian Snow. The Emporium is thriving and his relationship with NYPD homicide detective Calvin Winter is everything he´s ever wanted. With Valentine´s Day around the corner, Sebastian´s only cause for concern is whether Calvin should be taken on a romantic date. It´s only when an unknown assailant smashes the Emporium´s window and leaves a peculiar note behind that all plans get pushed aside in favor of another mystery. Sebastian is quickly swept up in a series of grisly yet seemingly unrelated murders. The only connection tying the deaths together are curiosities from the lost museum of P.T. Barnum. Despite Calvin´s attempts to keep Sebastian out of the investigation, someone is forcing his hand, and it becomes apparent that the entire charade exists for Sebastian to solve. With each clue that brings him closer to the killer, he´s led deeper into Calvin´s official cases. It´s more than just Sebastian´s livelihood and relationship on the line - it´s his very life. 1.

Sebastian Black is gorgeous and charismatic - and he’s telepathic. So when his prophetess mother, Kitty Black, declares him ´´New Man´´, their tiny spiritual movement mushrooms. But when disciples die and Christian militants declare war on this ´´false messiah´´, Sebastian runs, seeking refuge. On his journey, he meets ´´common´´ people with unforgettable histories: an aging lesbian couple; a Mexican handyman; an anorexic woman; a meth addict; a gay teenager; an unthinking college jock. As Sebastian’s understanding of life deepens, he drifts further from Kitty, who begins a plot to reel him back by conspiring with his enemies: followers of a dashing Spaniard who darkly mirrors Sebastian’s preternatural talents and beauty. But even Sebastian can’t foresee what happens next.... From Century City’s penthouses to Big Sur’s savage coastline, Black as Snow twists the fairytale of Snow White into a suspense-filled story of intrigue, spirituality, and greed - and the unyielding power of everyday love. 1.
