Think “Supernatural” meets “MIB” and has a demented love child. That’s TOMAWAC. It’s the story of Maestro, a time-traveling witch from the 24th century living our time who may be immortal, although he claims “immortal” is just another way to say no one’s figured out a way to kill him … yet. He assembles a team of misfits to investigate all forms of the paranomal. “It’s a Steven Spielberg,” the local police captain likes to tell him, “but I don’t know if it’s Close Encounters or Poltergeist.”
His team? Elizabeth Turner, an officer with the Galactic Police but masquerading as an FBI agent. She’s a shapeshifter hiding out on Earth as part of the galactic Witness Protection Program while she waits to give testimony against the infamous Alpaca Consortium. She decides to work with Maestro out of pure boredom and is the team’s expert on extra-terrestrials. (Don’t call them aliens around her!)
Morrison “Spook” James. He died in 1961, but never stopped walking around and shooting off his mouth, as his brother Ross always says. Redefining the word “zombie,” Spook is a hip, metro smart-alec trapped in the body of a seventeen-year-old, despite being almost seventy. Over the years, he and Ross hunted everything from ghosts to vampires … but Ross is only human … and he’s almost seventy, too. Spook joins Maestro’s team as the expert on all things supernatural. He hopes to learn more about magic from Maestro … and, truth be told, he’s mostly kinda lonely. Spook was first seen in the Tango Triptych series.
Reginald “Muscle” Sato has two jobs: kill evil creatures and beat people up. He’s on the team for when they meet up with something Turner’s tech and Spook’s magic can’t handle. Hey … sometimes you just need to shoot the shit out of the bad guy, right? He’s gotta be almost thirty, to look at him … but there’s a quiet innocence, too. And don’t try to take his hat!
A more unusual team would be hard to find … but there’s a more sinister reason Maestro has chosen this particular team. There are mysteries even deeper than those the team is bound to investigate.
