Agent SAMURAI, Vampire-Hunter
Once a SAMURAI ...
Michael Cameron has been a biology teacher, a musician, a novelist, and a martial arts instructor. All his life he’s been an intelligent problem-solver but, when all else fails, his source of stability, his grounding force has been the Zen teachings of the Shaolin and the discipline of Bushido. When his world is turned upside-down by the failure of his second marriage, (Michael’s first wife died of cancer), Mike disappears, spending two years in Japan, China, and Tibet. The death of his mother and learning that his father, former Detective Inspector Will Cameron, is dying of lung cancer, bring Michael back home to Halifax, where he opens a martial arts studio.

He needs help from the one man he’s known for most of his life – a man whose always been just a bit stronger and faster than most humans – a man named Michael Cameron.
More than one vampire is killing people in Halifax. Mike’s godfather, Detective Inspector Pete MacDonald doesn’t know how to deal with it. The public can’t know about vampires. At first Mike is reluctant, but now it’s becoming personal. He’s been marked as a target and one was sent to kill him. If that isn’t enough to shake his world view, wait ’til he finds out why the martial arts always came so easily to him and why he’s so fast.

Ronin: Outlaw SAMURAI
Someone is killing petty criminals in Halifax, leaving clues that point to the vigilante previously referred to in the news as Halifax’s Van Helsing or The Samurai Vampire-Killer. Framed, Michael Cameron is declared a rogue agent by CSIS, and a warrant is issued for his arrest.
The mysterious Dragomir Torok is secretly aiding Cesare Borgia in some political plot that involves Italy and other European countries, and is exerting covert influence in Canada.
Adding insult to injury, former Senior Supervisor Monahan has been declared sane and is back on active duty at CSIS. His main objective: destroy Agent Samurai.
Mike is left with very few places to turn in his efforts to clear himself. He must find and eliminate the impostor, a centuries old vampire who is a Black Dragon ninja, and unravel Torok and Borgia’s plot.
Daimyo: Lord SAMURAI
Carrie has disappeared. Count Torok has fled back to Europe, to his castle in the Carpathians. And now a mysterious lady-vampire is playing guardian angel in the same area. Fearing that it might be Carrie, Mike must journey to the mountains of Transylvania.
At the same time, he is still under pressure from CSIS to fulfill his true mission: Uncover what Torok and Cesare Borgia were plotting and deal with Borgia's partner in crime, the mysterious Count Grigore Dragomir Torok.
The secret of Michael's blood and his accelerated transition to master vampire, is finally revealed.
Maka-ka: Sorcerer SAMURAI
Borgia and Torok may be gone, but vampires in Europe still want revenge on Michael Cameron. They plot to attack the branch of the Scholomance in Scotland, where Mike is both a student and a teacher of aspects of the Wiccan craft.
Mike’s latest mission from CSIS involves the kidnapped son of a nuclear scientist, and the need to rescue the scientist himself from inside North Korea.
Mike still needs to isolate the elitists in Europe, and decides to locate their castle in Austria, but the situation is much more complicated, including a possible attack on an International Summit at a remote mountain castle in the Austrian Alps.
Darker forces than just vampires are at work and, as he discovers more about his long-buried Wiccan heritage, it becomes an entirely new game for Agent Samurai.
