About the Book

A tale of suspense, spirituality and redemption ripped from today’s headlines, Collared is the story of two brothers abused by their beloved parish priest.

Mitch becomes a reporter tearing through the shroud of secrecy cloaking around the church. He exposes the rampant pedophilia rotting the foundation of parish communities and the diocese’s ruthless attempts to avoid scandal at all costs.

His brother Barry is a priest dedicating his life to making a difference in the lives of the young people in his care.  He gets caught in the media frenzy created by Mitch’s columns and becomes the pawn of a Cardinal who will stop at nothing to retain his grip on power.

A vicious killer emerges from the shadows of the church and strikes at the clergy exposed in Mitch’s articles. A trail of bodies leads the brothers to the murderer and an explosive confrontation with the man who took their innocence all those years ago.
