When soldier-of-fortune and Iraqi War vet John Brenner is asked by Jacob Cahill to find his missing teenage daughter Sarah, John agrees, thinking it will be a short weekend's work.
His search for the girl leads him to a sunny town with a dark secret that no one lives to tell. Before it's over he will find himself plunged into a horrifying world of human experimentation and illegal organ harvesting, at the core of which throbs a devastating nightmare of kidnapping, torture, madness, and death.
John Brenner has one chance of bringing Sarah home alive. But in doing so he may lose himself.
And the clock is ticking.
The Bible makes it clear no one knows the day or the hour of Christ's return. But it doesn't say we won't know the month. Or the week.
When every Christian on Earth simultaneously receives a message that Christ will return sometime in the coming week, the world is thrown into stark panic. Two old friends, hardened combat veterans from the closing days of the Vietnam War, set out on a suspenseful quest to redeem that time.
What they can't know is they and their entire church have been targeted for satanic annihilation.
NOTE: This is a re-titled and completely updated version of my novel, Heading Home
Joe Box finds has never backed down from a fight, but this one may be the roughest one yet, as he himself battling pornography mogul Cyrus Alan "Cat" Tate. Joe reluctantly sides with the family-values groups that have been trying to shut down Tate's twisted world of video and printed porn, but Tate has other ideas when he offers Joe a lucrative position as head of corporate security. The stakes grow even higher with the introduction of "virtual porn," a type of debauchery with more allure than anything Joe ever imagined—and the onslaught of a personal attack he thought he'd never have to face.
Joe Box is asked to investigate the stalking of country music star Kitty Clark—one of the richest women in America. Although Joe wonders why this famous music legend would have her personal manager ask him to take the case, he accepts it for two reasons—one, he feels sorry for her and, two, he needs the money. The investigation leads Joe to discover not only the shocking identity of the stalker, but a heartbreaking revelation about himself...and Kitty Clark.
Joe Box, a Southern-bred, rough-hewn Cincinnati private investigator, is in for some big changes. Joe's just become a Christian, and not a moment too soon, as he finds himself facing the challenge of a lifetime. Joe's trying to track down and catch a seemingly inhuman killer, and this time it's personal——the shooter's after guys he served with in Vietnam.
