Pat Gooley, a retired navy officer, has completed his new book, “Mystic Arena”: a gripping and potent story of a priest named Robert Breslin who has been given a powerful, otherworldly gift that could save many lives from danger.

Published by New York City-based Page Publishing, Pat Gooley’s thrilling tale follows Fr. Robert Breslin on an incredible journey through which he must navigate the lines of religion, military conflict, and intrigue. Gooley’s creatively-crafted work is both thought-provoking and full of excitement.

Sometime in the indefinite future, when Fr. Robert Breslin, a Redemptorist priest on missionary assignment in Africa, discovers he has the ability to see things happening many miles and even continents away and can, in some cases, interact with those events, he notifies his religious superiors. Sent to Rome for evaluation, he convinces a few ranking members of the curia of his abilities. Kept on a short leash in Rome, he still sometimes slips the bounds. Introduced to the U.S. navy attaché in Rome, he also must keep his secret even as they become friends.

In Africa, a new organization, under the leadership of a Syrian referred to as the Mahdi, is trying to establish a Muslim caliphate throughout the continent. It trains and equips terrorist operatives for assignments as far away as North America and as near as Rwanda, in southeastern Africa. Using cargo ships as floating bombs, smuggling, and even use of a nuclear weapon are among their plans. Fr. Robert must act when he sees his best friend murdered by one of the terrorists.

With the help of three friends, Fr. Robert must try to confront the murderer and attempt to prevent many more, even as other terrorist plans are in the works.

Readers who wish to experience this gripping work can purchase “Mystic Arena” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes store, Amazon, Google Play or Barnes and Noble.
