The Apocalypse Door
Welcome to the world of Peter Crossman, Knight Templar extraordinaire. He's a man with a mission - and his boss is literally out of this world. Despite what is accepted as gospel truth, the order of the Knights Templar never really went out of business. These warriors of God still walk among us, battling evil to keep Adam's children safe - as they have been doing for millennia. Peter Crossman is a priest and a man of many talents, performing last rites with one hand and handling a flamethrower with the other. He walks with faith at his side and with his colleague, the dangerously sexy Sister Mary Magdalene of the Special Action Executive Branch of the Poor Clares. Peter is faced with a crisis of biblical proportions when the search for some missing UN peacekeepers goes horribly wrong. A very unholy object is found that may open a portal to damnation. Fortunately, demonic magic isn't the only source of power in the world. And Peter's got a direct line to the biggest guns in the universe.

"Smart, funny and sexy, THE APOCALYPSE DOOR is a rollicking caper with a touch of the sacred. "An inventive melange of hard-boiled thriller and speculative fantasy. Though other novels have blended mysticism, mystery, and fantasy, few have done it as smartly or succinctly as this one." - Publishers Weekly"
