Mercy at Midnight

Three people—three Divine appointments

 

Cynthia Wells, an undercover reporter with a dark secret and in search of a story, finds more than she bargains for, including a love she never expected.

 

Jonathan Holms, pastor of affluent Christ Church, is stunned when God directs him to a mission where he must come to grips with a killer and his own difficult past.

 

Stubby White was never anything and he was sure he’d never be anything, not with all the bad breaks he’s had. But at the Beacon Mission, when he finds the promise of a new life, he must decide whether to dwell in the past or break from it.  

 

All three are thrown together by converging circumstances involving danger and a mysterious killer who seems bent on destroying them all.

The Babel Conspiracy

The Babel Conspiracy is a tale of intrigue and love. Two women engineers struggle to develop the world’s first nuclear-powered aircraft amid ever intensifying global terrorism and muddled personal lives. Trisha Callahan has an abiding faith in God, and “those roots of middy blouses and pleated skirts, prayer books and incense-filled churches went deep.” This faith is tested when she finds herself in love with a married man. Audra Shields sees herself as a modern Lady Chatterley, “liberated but not forsaking breeding, intellect, or femininity.” When she becomes involved with a dangerous stranger, she begins to question her lifestyle.

Both women try sorting out their personal problems while racing the clock to finish a project fraught with sabotage and murder. And who’s behind it all? When the Department of Homeland Security and the Mossad finally figure it out, the answer surprises everyone.

Waters of Marah

For 28 years, Gloria Bickford has lived under the thumb of her overbearing mother. Only twice during that time has Gloria ever had the courage to defy her—when she accepted Jesus as Savior and when she moved into her own apartment. Gloria is about to do it a third time by refusing to marry the man her mother has picked for her and by moving out of town. But after she moves, things quickly go from bad to worse. First, Gloria's neighbor commits suicide. Then Gloria discovers her boss is not quite the man she thought he was. Things continue to heat up when Perth, a semi-runaway, semi-juvenile delinquent attaches herself to Gloria and then again when the radical environmentalists come to town. All these elements combine to create a moral crisis for Gloria, and place her in a position where she stands to lose everything.

Refiner's Fire

Refiner's Fire is a powerful and suspenseful novel about two brothers. Separated in post war Europe at the age of five, the fraternal twins are brought together, thirty-five years later, by unexpected and dangerous circumstances that jeopardize their marriages, careers and very lives. One brother, Yuri Deyneko, a Colonel in the Romanian regular army, suspects that the new American Ambassador to his country is his lost twin. Ambassador Alexander Wainwright, on the other hand, suspects nothing. The secret life of one brother and the ambition of the other will put them both on a collision course. Set amid Nicolae Ceausescu's Communist Romania of the 80's, where political and religious persecution was severe, the plight of the Underground Christian Church unfolds. It is a time of danger and trial; a time when a man's mettle is refined. Refiner's Fire looks at the best and worst that's in us, and shows that love can triumph in the face of the most terrible evil.
