“Gracie C. McKeever (c) December 2011
Homicide Detective, Thomas "Veck" DelVecchio, Jr. just transferred to the Caldwell Police Department and makes quite a splash and an impression his first week on the job when he loses his temper and punches out a paparazzi for disrespecting the dead at a crime scene. Though his fellow detectives support his action, some see him as a loose cannon and on the edge. They may very well be right since Veck has had doubt about his own sanitry for a long time. It comes with the territory when one is the son of a notorious serial killer on death row like he is.
Internal Affairs Detective, Sophie Reilly has a dark past of her own, but she won't allow it to keep her from doing her job when she is assigned to monitor Veck after an incident that leaves a suspected serial killer at death's door.
Jim Heron, The Savior, will do anything he has to to find out who his next assignment is, even sleep with evil incarnate in his nemesis, Devina. When he and his partners and fellow angels do discover their assignment in Veck, they understand that the stakes have been raised, and He has upped the ante considerably. Nothing has come easily to the three angels so far but as the contest moves forward, executing the plans of the Creator becomes even more difficult and more dangerous with Devina and her minions out and about. When Veck makes the cardinal mistake of falling for a fellow officer in Reilly, he puts not only himself in Devina's deadly crosshairs, but Reilly.
Jim refuses to back down from his duty and will do everything in his power to reach Veck and let him know he isn't walking alone, before it's too late. The safety of the entire human race and the world depends on Veck making the right decision at the quickly-approaching cross-road of his life, and Jim has to be there when he makes it.
Another fast-paced, engaging story in Ward's Fallen Angel series with multi-dimensional and sympathetic characters to drive the narrative to its suspensful and action-packed end. ”
