About the Book

Fr. Joe Gramel, a Catholic priest and pastor of a small congregation in South Carolina is devastated, learning that his sixteen year old niece died from a drug overdose in New York. Joe’s enraged about Melissa’s death, questions his Catholic beliefs and morals, and is convinced that he must right a wrong.

At 42, Father Joe is unsatisfied and frustrated with society and the church. He feels powerless, unfulfilled and knows it’s time to stop watching as a spectator, and go after drug dealers that killed Melissa.

Joe takes a leave of absence to go New York, and is consumed and  determined to the point of risking his own life. James, an old friend from seminary school agrees to help in the vigilant fight.

Fr.’s Joe and James are out of their league as they go underground. After infiltrating the pusher Carlos, a kingpin named Pinky and  prostitute Alexandria, the bottom falls out. They’re exposed to killings, kidnappings and greed, while learning that no one’s life is important to a drug kingpin. This action thriller will keep you guessing. Emotions run deep as we feel the inner most battles and questions in Joe’s mind, and wonder who will die next.
