“Thin Places”: a dark and unforgettable story that brags of shadowy enemies with ancient and unrelenting motives and the ultimate showdown between light and dark. “Thin Places” is the creation of published author, Bob Laurent, a gifted and celebrated author, public speaker, and outstanding husband, father, and grandfather.

Well known musician, performer, and songwriter Michael W. Smith says, “Bob Laurent's ability to communicate is his gift. I met him as a teen, and it changed my life forever. Bob's sense of humor, his caring spirit, and his passion to communicate Christ have impacted thousands of people. While many have influenced the style of music I play--Bob Laurent influenced the content.”

Published by Christian Faith Publishing, Bob Laurent’s new book is a story about the courageous family of Jackson Jazz Hightower, a lovable, mysterious thirteen-year-old boy. Jacks is on a mission with global implications but has a treacherous, shadowy enemy with an ancient oath to stop him.

The adventures begin for Jacks when his traumatized cousin, Ben Keegan, comes to stay at the Hightower farm. After the terrifying Shadow comes calling late one night in the boys' bedroom, the action that follows is relentless.

The backdrop for this classic battle between light and darkness is one that seventy million Midwesterners are too familiar with: a perilous winter storm dubbed "The White Hurricane."

Jacks' father, Gurney, a research scientist and professor at Notre Dame, is buried alive in his SUV just six miles west of South Bend. He risked the trip home from an assignment in Chicago against his wife's pleas because the one he affectionately calls "Babe" is nine months pregnant and without medical help thanks to the storm.

Of course, Jacks leaves the farm on a snowmobile accompanied by his golden lab, Bear, to attempt the rescue of his father. When he is joined in the search later by Ben on his noble horse, Pockets, Babe is left with only her eight-year-old daughter, Carrie to help her if the baby comes.

What the Ancient Evil has planned for the boys in the blizzard on Interstate 80, along with the unspeakable malice he dispatches to the Hightower farm that evening, make for a climax that will keep the reader turning pages, losing sleep, and demanding a sequel.
