Mona Lisa Novel, or Paris Nocturne

A Ghostly and Moonlit Tale by John Argo

Mystery for the Ages: True Secret Why Leonardo Painted Mona Lisa

Most Famous Woman In Art History: Leonardo Da Vinci (twice?) painted Lisa Gherardini, a dramatic housewife in 16th Century Florence—not once, but twice, obsessively. His reasons are unveiled here for the first time: fiction—but a powerful theory. Many story twists start with a young U.S. soldier in Heidelberg, Cold War Germany, whose tragic love story ended in Paris. Years later (or in the blink of an eye?) his daughter Hannah, 30, follows an eerie trail that grew cold decades ago on a Bridge of Regret by the Louvre (Pont des Arts). A dark fantasy of love and loss, regret and second chances in the City of Light. We encounter haunting truths, like the famous slogan in Shakespeare & Co. Paris bookstore: "Be Not Inhospitable to Strangers Lest They Be Angels in Disguise."

DarkSF Novel From John Argo

Original Deep Space Concept Far Beyond Ridley Scott's *Alien*

Nothing Seems Right Near the Speed of Light: Ridge and Brenna are among six engineers who awaken on a starship for what seems like a day of routine maintenance on a regular run from Earth to Neptune. As they soon learn, nothing is what it seems on board what is really a derelict, ghostly starship on a mysterious mission that went wrong. Worst of all, he and she learn that they are not who or what they thought. But they are in love, and desperate to stay alive together and find a shadowy refuge called Largo to save them from a horrible fate. The least of their problems are the nightmarish Cleaners, human-like wraiths, stalking them in the ruined, dripping corridors at every move… one of the scariest SF novels ever —goes beyond horror to the very core of who we are (or thought we were).
