Christopher J. Penington, a novelist, screenwriter and retired police officer from Shreveport, Louisiana, has completed his new book “The Hand Bringer”: a fast-paced thriller following tough, street-smart cop Peter Hadrian who, following the mysterious and devastating loss of his wife and son, is genetically reengineered as a perfect weaponless warrior by a clandestine governmental agency. Hadrian is sent back in time to medieval Romania where he must find a way to eliminate the threat of vampirism before this ancient accursed disease threatens to destroy the modern world.

According to Penington, “readers really connect with this book because the protagonist is such a relatable, human character. Even though Peter’s story is fantastical, his quest to understand the loss of his wife and son resonates on a deeply personal level. (I) think (we) can all see part of ourselves in Peter as he literally moves heaven and earth to find answers, change the course of history and come to terms with the fact that nothing around him is – and has never been - what it seems.”

Published by New York City-based Page Publishing, Christopher J. Penington’s gripping tale is a must-read for fans of the horror/fantasy and crime genres as well as anyone who has an interest in shadow government or time travel.

Readers who wish to experience this riveting work can purchase“The Hand Bringer” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes store, Amazon, Kobo, Google Play or Barnes and Noble.
