Unnatural Causes is off to readers ... heaven help me (and them).

So for today, here's the song I have written down as a touchstone on the overarching theme.  If you listen to the lyrics, they refer specifically to a romance, but they have much broader implications, especially for a tale with politics, betrayal and a dose of hero worship:

Writing On The Wall - Blackmore's Night

I've also written a short story that uses this song as a tighter theme / inspiration, along with another tune that just happens to be part of my Unnatural Causes soundtrack.  I've referenced this one before, and it's Vil's themesong, as well:

Orange Express - Miami Sound Machine

To repeat:  "a toda maquina" means "at full speed" or "full speed ahead."
