About my latest book, The Order of the Beloved

It is written in scriptures that immortals, those who cannot die, walk this earth. Some believe they have wandered among us since before the birth of Christ.

Father Jerome Dougherty, a Catholic priest; Professor Harold Weintraub, a Jewish philosopher; and Nathan Johnson, a Mormon FBI agent, team up to solve the murders of three men who claimed to be immortal. Together, they commit to finding out whether the assassinations are an elaborate hoax or if an ancient cult has managed to slaughter eternal innocents.

In this provocative novel, friends become enemies, governments align with terrorists, and religions turn their backs on their own principles in order to protect-or perhaps destroy-the truth.

Advance praise for The Order of the Beloved...
