Three is a Mystical Number

3Three. A number that throughout the ages has been imbued with symbolic and magical importance. To wit:

  • The Holy Trinity
  • The Three Wisemen
  • Three days in the tomb
  • Three-for-one jelly donuts at Dunkin

And that’s just in the Christian and the carbohydrates traditions. Here are a few others:

  • The Pythagoreans taught that 3 was the first true number (meaning 1 and 2 are liars, I guess)
  • Three is the first number that forms a geometrical figure – the triangle.
  • Expressions like “Third time’s the charm” or “Third time lucky” date back to antiquity, (or at least to when my mom said it in 1965 after I’d fallen off my bike twice).
  • Plato’s Utopian city was divided into three populations – the laborers, the warriors or guardians, and the philosophers, who were to be the rulers. (I’m guessing if he’d been a plumber they would have been the rulers, but that’s just a guess.)

I think I’ve made my point. Three is a pretty big deal.

It’s a big deal in the world of SpyCo novella’s as well, because every time Craig A, Hart and I publish three books in the series we also release a three-book anthology, and the publication of Assignment: Dublin marked the sixth Assignment.

So with great pride and much mystical “3” celebrating I’m happy to announce:


Assignment: Danger contains the SpyCo adventures set in Sydney, Alaska, and Dublin. These are three important titles in the series, each providing non-stop thrills and action, and collectively propelling the SpyCo saga forward.

All three books are yours for the low price of $4.99, which is also a mystical number, as you will ask yourself the mystical question “Can I really handle this much excitement for less than five bucks? It’s just mystical!” Or something similar.

collectionAnd if, for some mystical reason you haven’t read the first three installments, collected together in Assignment: Adventure now would be a very good time to do so as that particular collection is currently being offered for FREE on Amazon. And free is a level of mysticism we can all agree upon.

So I guess the most mystical question of all is: “Why haven’t you gotten these books yet?” GO!
