Where Did All the Christian Readers Go?

Where Did All the Christian Readers Go?

Let me preface this post by making it clear that I’m a Christian author who writes Christian thrillers and suspense novels. (By Christian, I don’t mean Catholic but evangelical, in the sense that I believe the Bible and embrace God’s message of salvation by grace alone embodied in the sacrificial life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ.

Don’t worry. There is no major body count in this novel, and I’m always sensitive about violence in what I write. I think the title will make more sense when you read the story. And I’m eager for you to. What’s this one about? Here is the back cover teaser.
