Share Article

Mysterious cell phone calls, text messages and e-mails send an ordinary man on an extraordinary adventure in this new novel released by Dog Ear Publishing. A jealous wife, attractive colleague and federal agents – both companions and adversaries – join a man who has just lost his father as he takes on an unexpected quest: to foil an assassination attempt.

Dog Ear Publishing releases “The Funeral Gatherer” by Jeff Stratton.

A whirlwind day starts with saving the black-haired beauty from choking and helping a battered wife, as well as evading crooked cops and federal agents planning to assassinate the president.

Brad Underwood fears leaving the same legacy as his father, worn down by life. He vows he won’t end up like his dad in this imaginative story released by Dog Ear Publishing. Soon after his father’s sparsely attended funeral, Brad begins dreaming about people who beckon him to a better place. Mysterious e-mails, text messages and cell phone calls follow, all leading to Brad getting involved with the FBI, terrorist suspects, and a plot to assassinate the visiting president of the United States.

In “The Funeral Gatherer,” Brad tries to reinvent himself, feeling drawn to a mysterious world of light. Even as this formerly hard-drinking real estate salesman works with his neglected wife Brianna to bring others to the light, Brad struggles with feelings for an attractive, black-haired colleague. A whirlwind day starts with saving the raven-haired beauty from choking and helping a battered wife, as well as evading crooked cops, corrupt federal agents, and possible terrorists planning to assassinate the president. A shadowy figure who seems somehow familiar adds to the supernatural feeling of this nonstop adventure that doesn’t end until the startling conclusion.

Author Jeff Stratton, a licensed clinical mental health counselor and licensed alcohol and drug counselor, has been drawn to writing for the past 15 years. He especially enjoys suspense/thrillers and exploring the spiritual realm. Stratton aims to create realistic characters and keep the plot moving quickly. He and his wife, Kathleen, live in New Hampshire.
