An action-packed nail-biter from beginning to end! . . . I couldn't put it down."

--Lynette Eason, best-selling, award-winning author of the Blue Justice series

John Cross is a small-town pastor, bent on leading his flock to follow God's calling. He's not the sort of man one would expect to have a checkered past.

But the truth is that the man behind the pulpit preaching to his sheep was once a wolf--an assassin for the CIA. When John decided to follow Christ, he put that work behind him, determined to do penance for all the lives he took. He vowed never to kill again.

Now someone wants the peaceful pastor to pay for his sins with his own life. And when a terrorist out for revenge walks into the church, John's secrets are laid bare. Confronted with his past, he must face his demons and discover whether a man can truly change. Can he keep his vow--even when the people he loves are in mortal danger? Will his congregation and the brave woman he's learning to care for be caught in the cross fire? In the end, John's life may be the only sacrifice he has left to offer. . .

Andrew Huff's thrilling debut is not only a riveting story of suspense, it's also a deep exploration of the moral quandaries that face those who choose to follow the Prince of Peace in a violent world.

Review quote

"Wow! I didn't see that coming. Am I going to have to now follow John Cross from book to book, movie to movie? I hope so! Is it possible to walk with the Lord and be a spy? I hope so! What an opportunity to imagine carrying Christ into every kind of job and seeing the impact it has in a page turning, compelling story. Get to know Cross. Get to know Huff. I think we are going to be spending a lot of time with them."--Randy Hahn, Senior Pastor of The Heights Baptist Church, Virginia (7/8/2019 12:00:00 AM)
