Today, more than ever, people are questioning the role of humanity in our universe, questioning God, and why there continues to be suffering without intervention
London, Ontario (PRWEB) September 14, 2012
Detective Nick McCallister investigates a rash of suicides – three on the south end and three on the west end – his own son Justin among them. Something evil is happening in the city. In his new book, “The Seventh Day” (published by iUniverse), author Michael Alexander writes a gripping tale where the line between good and evil is often blurred.
McCallister encounters the face of evil when Satan’s personal assistant, Nathan, appears in his living room late one night and asks if he’s ready for the truth. While an escape from reality is actually what he wants, McCallister knows Nathan must be stopped – but he has no idea how to proceed.
The detective is already being sucked downward by the emotional undercurrent of a failing marriage, Justin’s suicide and the investigation of his own police force over the grim murder of a local African American civil rights activist.
He’s drawn into the ugliest corners of a truth he never could have imagined, a world where the myths of civilization are exposed, the Inquisition analyzed, and the Bible rewritten. McCallister is challenged to determine what is truly good and what is truly evil after he realizes his son and his wife have made their own informed and untimely decisions.
“Today, more than ever, people are questioning the role of humanity in our universe, questioning God, and why there continues to be suffering without intervention,” Alexander explains. “I believe that although my novel is fictitious, the ending will leave the reader with a sense of hope.”
