7 elements · 7 deceptions · 7 revelations
In some ways similar to twin peaks, in others, a conspiracy thriller. Yet beneath it all, an age old mystery.
The Elements is not like any other series ever written – a hi-concept mystery thriller series with a quest for the truth set in the timeframe of the 20th century. The Elements concerns the games of deception of the Cold War, combined with the depth and breadth of vision of epic historical fiction.
ANGELICA is on a quest – for the truth.
In the quest for truth, to discover that truth will mean struggling to understand the lives and actions of the past. To reveal that truth means to remove it from the shadows of those who would not be found, those who would not enlighten, caught up in the tide of fate and time. To survive that truth will mean challenging the game masters who want to keep the mysteries just the way they are.
THE ELEMENTS is a unique story universe blending the tough gritty world of the Cold War spy, subterfuge and deception with the search for an esoteric truth that lies buried deep in the shifting sands of time.
