Innocent blood has been shed and justice cries out from the grave. This time, someone is listening and preparing a deadly course of action for justice. In The Gatekeeper, author Michael A. Bowling takes readers down a twisting path of injustice introducing a man who considers himself the harbinger of justice—a mysterious figure known as the gatekeeper.

As readers immerse in this intriguing novel, gripping events unfold even from the very first page. One by one, convicted sex offenders are turning up dead, murdered in the same fashion that they killed their young victims. Carved deeply into their flesh is the Roman numeral “IV” and the word “justice.” IV JUSTICE” The Ann Arbor Times writes: “If Saint Peter welcomes saints into heaven... the Gatekeeper ushers pedophiles into hell.”

Detective James Larson has been tasked to apprehend this unknown vigilante. Neither he nor the Gatekeeper is aware that an unspeakable evil is descending on the children of mid-Michigan like a dark summer storm. . . Will they both set aside their differences and work together to bring down this new threat? Readers can unravel the exciting answer as The Gatekeeper continues his quest for justice.
