The next adventure of The Seven Sins ' Michael "The Tyrant" Tiranno, Jon Land's Black Scorpion is a pulse pounding action-thriller as he takes on a worldwide human trafficking cabal.

Five years have passed since Michael Tiranno saved the city of Las Vegas from a terrorist attack. Now a new enemy has surfaced in Eastern Europe: an all-powerful organization called Black Scorpion. Once a victim of human trafficking himself, the shadowy group's crazed leader, Vladimir Dracu, has taken the scourge global. And now he's set his sights on Michael Tiranno for reasons birthed in a painful secret past that has scarred both men.
Michael must confront an all-powerful enemy who is exploiting and ravaging innocents all across the globe and intends to make all of America its new victim. Black Scorpion's latest hostage is the woman Michael loves:Scarlett Swan, a beautiful archaeologist who was searching for the origin of the ancient relic that both defines and empowers Michael, a discovery that could change history and the perception of mankind's very origins.
With the odds stacked against him, Michael must embrace his true destiny and become the Tyrant reborn, a dark knight who can triumph over ultimate evil and stop Black Scorpion from plunging Las Vegas into chaos and anarchy and undermining the entire United States.

A major feature film based on the character of Michael Tiranno, the Tyrant, is in active development in Hollywood. The film will be based on Black Scorpion and its predecessor, The Seven Sins, which both have also been licensed to DC Comics for comic book and graphic novel publication worldwide.

Publisher's Weekly Review

Michael Tiranno (aka the Tyrant) saved Las Vegas, Nev., from a terrorist attack in Land's The Seven Sins: The Tyrant Ascending (2008). In this absorbing sequel, Michael faces a bigger threat-the infamous Black Scorpion crime empire, based in Eastern Europe, an organization that engages in human trafficking across the globe. Vladimir Dracu, Black Scorpion's unstable leader, takes Scarlett Swan, Michael's archeologist girlfriend, hostage. Scarlett was pursuing an ancient relic whose discovery could have important implications for the fate of humanity. An outsized hero perfectly suits the over-the-top plot. Michael is at home with high finance, having built the Seven Sins Resort and Casino into the highest-grossing property on the Strip. He's equally at home in the local sports arena, where he takes on Durado "the Executioner" Segura in a mixed martial arts exhibition bout. Larger-than-life action scenes play out in a variety of locales in this exuberant crime thriller. Agent: Natalia Aponte, Natalia Aponte Literary Agency. (Apr.) © Copyright PWxyz, LLC.
