Detective Jelani is a tough, veteran cop, who earned his stripes in the
rough-and-tumble streets of St. Louis before relocating to Miami. His
younger partner, Detective Madigan, is brash and confident. But they were
never prepared for what awaits them as they try to solve these latest
crimes. They are about to become embroiled in a series of cosmic events
which they could have never dreamt of, even in their wildest imaginations.
In a world where the angels of heaven and the angels of hell bring their
ageless battle to Earth, how will these men, and their families, overcome
such insurmountable challenges? As has been the case since the beginning of
time, God and His heavenly host are facing off with Satan and his hellish
host. Caught in the middle is Thumos, possibly the most powerful angel ever
created. He is a warrior angel, “quickened” by God for one thing:
battle. And he has seen plenty of that down through the centuries. No one
can match his prowess; not even the Archangels. But Thumos has become a
disgruntled warrior of God, and after standing by for long enough, he can
take it no more. The earthly world of these two Miami detectives will
collide with the heavenly world of Thumos. None of them know what is coming,
and none of them will ever be the same again.
I liked that it was realistic, and interesting at the same time. I also like that it took time to solve things, not just have all of the answers right away, we were kept in the story and along for the ride.
Even though it has very serious themes, it wasn’t oppressive and I loved the humor interspersed.
About the Author
John has spent his professional career working in information technology by
day and dabbling in a variety of other diversions by nights and weekends,
including a few decades of serving in lay ministry. While serving in this
capacity he preached hundreds of sermons, taught countless Bible study
classes, and wrote dozens of inspirational articles.
He enjoys golf, guitars, grandchildren, and all things Kansas City –
the Chiefs, the Royals, Sporting KC, KC Current, KC Symphony, and KC
Broadway, to name a few. He thinks (if not for his long-lost
metabolism of youth) he could eat the famous Kansas City barbecue every
day…maybe not for breakfast, but lunch and dinner for sure!
Now he is enjoying bringing to life his angelic hero, Thumos, and a host of
other characters that he hopes you will find both entertaining as well as
either inspiring or repulsive (after all, there are both good guys and bad
guys in this story). This is the first book of a series, featuring
detectives Lane Madigan and Ian Jelani, whose experience with Thumos will
yield life changing results. And if you happen to be interested in
such things, happy Bible Easter Egg hunting while you read, since many are
planted throughout the book.
