Product Description

Product Description

"If I Could Give It Ten Stars, I Would." - Myra Hotchkiss

"Masterfully written. I did not want it to end." - Sally B. Lowe


After her mother is murdered trying to protect her, young Sarah Baxter ends up in the care of an unlikely hero; a new and inexperienced social worker with problems of her own. Yet when Christine Rose discovers something very special about Sarah, she also learns a terrifying secret that few would ever dream possible.

But it's more than just's imminent.

For over a century, in countries around the globe, a dark and meticulous plan has been set. But now an immensely powerful group must find and eliminate Sarah, the one person who can change the outcome. With unlimited resources and the unwitting support of a powerful government, they will stop at nothing to see their plan through. A strike at the very heart of faith itself.

From New York City, to the Vatican, to the hidden Nazi bunkers of Argentina, Christine must dig deep within herself and find the strength to keep Sarah alive.

Because if Sarah doesn't one will.

5.0 out of 5 stars Better than Dan Brown 10 Nov 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
The book description calls Grumley the new Dan Brown - he's not, he is better. He has Brown's understanding of pace and suspense but his writing is more fluid and natural. His plot is genuinely original, engaging and fantastic, in every sense of the word. A genuinely unputdownable book. Too often with Free downloads I find myself excusing the author's awkward writing style or overworked descriptive passages. Not so here. Michael C Grumley is an author whose work I will happily pay for in the future. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars WOW!! 12 Jun 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I couldn't put this book down, it was really, really good. There are so many characters, but every one of them has a part to play in the story, and what an original story it was. I had no idea where it was leading, with so many twists and turns. I would recommend this book to anybody who loves a good thriller. Now I am off to buy Mr Grumleys other book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely Loved It 14 Nov 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I love to read thrillers and whodunits, I thought this was going to be along those lines, was I mistaken, it was so much more.

This book had me hooked. More than a mystery, more than a detective story. The characters are so, well Im not good with words so I`ll go with believable. And the story running through it about good, bad, religion, god and the devil made me think about things going on in the world today.

I am not good with sadness in books, this had some of that, with out giving too much away I cried when certain characters passed. Like I said before I am not very good with words and expressing things, I read many books, this is only the second review ( I think ) I have done. I did this because the book moved me, made me think, and entertained me.

I can highly recommend it. Thank you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant! 7 Nov 2013
By Calli
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I loved this book!
Downloaded this while it was free, I started reading this morning on the walk to work and have just finished it not having moved from the sofa since I got home.
The characters were believable and likeable. The story kept me gripped from beginning to end and made me ponder if maybe there is something more out there.
Everybody needs a Rand in their life. I hope i'm yellow!

Brilliant book Michael, well done. Here's to you making it out of dimly lit corners.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well Worth a read 11 May 2014
By Soo
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
An interesting take on good v bad. Well written held my interest all the way through. Its a page `turner` Only complaint - it ended to soon. Recommend to all readers of `thrillers` especially those who like a slight twist
away from the expected.
