Lucifer's Machine

An Ogmios Team Novel



"Perfect for those DaVinci Code fans looking for another electrifying read combining Biblical history with modern-day Armageddon." – Douglas Preston, NYT Bestselling author of IMPACT and BLASPHEMY 

During the basking summer heat a university-based archaeology team uncovers an ancient box bearing the image of Baphomet. They are on a remote French island with strong links to the Knights Templar story. The image of Baphomet itself goes a long way to proving those links as far as the team lead by Dr Kytain are concerned, especially as the Templar were accused of devil worship during their trails. Could this box-a crude yet sophisticated machine centuries ahead of its time-be a vital link to discovering the true nature of the knights relationship to the horned devil? 

Before they are able to decipher the box’s secrets the entire team are butchered horrifically, and all indications are that an extremist group, Al Aler’eyh, are behind the slaughter. A second linked murder in the hallowed halls of Cambridge University tips off Control to the threat. 

Enter Sir Charles Wyndham and his Ogmios Team. 

Tasked with finding the Lucifer Machine and putting an end to this particularly fundamentalist wing of the terror organisation, Noah and Orla find themselves in the adult playground of Dubai, fighting for their lives... 


SILVER was the first in an on-going series of adventures built around the Ogmios Team. Published in hardcover in the US, Spain, Poland, France, Turkey and Germany, it reached #2 on Amazon UK and was in the Top 30 Bestselling Ebooks of 2011 as selected by The Bookseller in the UK. 

LUCIFER'S MACHINE is not a direct sequel to SILVER but it takes place during the same timeline, featuring the same characters. It focuses on events that happened to Orla Nyrén and Noah Larkin in the days leading up to SILVER, and completes the cycle of OGMIOS ORIGINS novels. 

"The mix of history, suspense, and action in Silver perfect for those DaVinci Code fans looking for another electrifying read combining Biblical history with modern-day Armageddon." 
– Douglas Preston, NYT Bestselling author of IMPACT and BLASPHEMY 

"With Silver, Steven Savile delivers a barn storming tale of action, intrigue and suspense in a plot laced with ancient secrets and modern terror." – Matt Hilton, author of the the Joe Hunter thrillers. 

"Silver is a cracker of a thriller. Savile's in a league of his own" – Jeremy Duns, author of FREE AGENT and FREE COUNTRY. 

"Reminiscent of James Rollins and David Morrell." – Joseph Nassise, international bestselling author of the TEMPLAR CHRONICLES. 

"Fascinating, gripping, horrific, tragic and compelling." 
– Steve Alten, NYT Bestselling author of MEG and THE SHELL GAME 

"SILVER is a wild combination of Indiana Jones, The Da Vinci Code, and The Omen." – Kevin J Anderson, international bestselling author of THE SAGA OF SEVEN SUNS and co-author of PAUL OF DUNE
