Their love and passion is pure yet on the edge. Mr. E falls for two women he cannot have. Sean stalks the only women he ever ... wanted.

MYSTERY

PERPETUAL is about finding the truth. As the truth eludes our heroes. Who is Zebo? Who is the CIA NOC? Will the antiterrorist terrorists bring Jihad? Who is Cracker Jack? Why kill him? What's in the duffel bags hidden in the VW Bus? Is the FBI complicit in the conspiracy? How did all that money get in Matthew's bank? What's up with Mr. E and Matthew's mom. Who is George the tow-truck driver, really? What is the research? What is the Manifetso? What is Matthew's malady and how did it start?

Dr. JACKSON

Maria’s protective father who immigrated, albeit escaped feuding families, with Maria’s mother, Salina, from northern Spain. They open Godello’s Spanish Restaurant. He’s a broken man after the loss of his true love, Maria’s mother. Phil and three aunts now live for Maria and the restaurant–and keep a close eye on Matthew.

Matthew’s and Sean’s difficult father is a Korea and Vietnam veteran. Parker took over the family pulp business and runs it like the Marines. He doesn’t understand Matthew’s bent toward science and wonders who will take over the family business one day. Parker and his first son, Sean, butt heads yet turn out to have much in common. Sean is DIA. His father was DIA. Matthew’s mentor, Mr. E, is not welcome.

Matthew’s dear mother was born in Martha’s Vineyard as a Joyce, close to the Kennedy’s. Kate is the fulcrum in the Eaton family. (plot buster warning) A romance seems to simmer with Matthew’s mysterious CIA trained tutor, Mr. E.

CRACKER JACK

Cracker Jack is the first to tell the almost unbelievable story about invention, intrigue and murder which sends our heroes tumbling into their chaotic adventure.

Our mysterious storyteller in Miami Beach. Cracker Jack comes into M&M’s lives in a flash telling a wild story about the future world saving source of energy and how the FBI and all forces of evil are after him and the product. Cracker Jack’s mysterious relationship to M&M unravels through the entire series and drives the plot. Jackson’s loyal son is raised in the fortress and hidden lab on Lake Michigan. Tremont meets and become best friends with Matthew’s brother, Sean, through whom he learns about Matthew, and like himself and his father, his savant gift for science. Tremont played basketball guard for Bobby Knight U of I. He joins the Marines with his pal Sean as he always had a desire to live up to both of his grandfather’s military traditions. He eventually realizes that his place is at his father’s side and returns to Indiana just in time to accompany his father to D.C. — to present CJ Energy to WCASE World Council on energy – and all hell breaks loose. Posthumous, Tremont and his father remain a factor throughout the series.

“There is no such thing as a Conspiracy Theory. It’s either a conspiracy or it’s not, ” he says. As a child Matthew thinks of his mentor as 007. As Matthew matures, he perceives that his mentor is just a man replete with faults. (plot buster) Similar to his hero worship of his brother Sean, he is helpless to thwart the wiles of good intentions, those he comes to call his puppeteers. He lets people and circumstances move him toward his destiny. Estebanez cares about duty, honor, and country. But when his close friend, Cameron Jackson, is murdered, he comes to terms with what he loves — the Jackson and the Eaton families. He will direct and protect our heroes if it kills him. Mr. E evolves as a human—from CIA NOC to caretaker and protector. Felix has loved two women anywhere near close to his age, Jackson’s wife, and Matthew’s mother. What a quandary.

ESTEBANEZ

Perpetual’s most mysterious, elusive, debonair, and intriguing character. Mr. E, as M&M come to call him, is entwined in everyone’s lives with purpose.

THE MICKMAC’S OF MAINE

The god of Thunder and protector of the mountain bewitchesMatthew and Maria! The Micmac and Penobscot peopledescribe Pamola as having the head of a moose, the body of a man and the wings and feet of an eagle. Pamola was both feared and respected by the Penobscot nation, and his presence led to death and disappearance. Will our heroes be faced with this fate?
