Four college friends grow to be powerful men of the cloth, but they’re not as morally upstanding as they seem when their high profile positions pull them into national intrigue in Carlton James’ new thriller “Secrets of the Cloth: The Powers That Be…” (published by Archway Publishing).

James, Carlos, George, and Arthur met as fraternity brothers in college. In adulthood, they reach the pinnacle of career success as influential mega-church pastors. However, things are not what they seem. The clergymen are allowed to operate simultaneously as underworld drug lords with an untouchable status because of their rumored affiliation with the illuminati. Regardless of their power, they learn they are being used as pawns.

“I have tried to include people from all walks of life: Church, college, the streets, suburbanites, etc. in crafting an urban tale that hopefully all will enjoy,” James says, adding “I want readers to enjoy the story but also glean from the hidden nuggets of wisdom coated in allegory.”
