It was 6 p.m. when the Devil walked into my office and had a seat.
Bounty hunter Victor McCain always wondered how his brother, Mikey, went from down-n-out loser to one of Louisville’s richest men. Now he knew: his brother sold his soul to the Devil. And in twenty-four hours, Mikey would die and spend eternity in Hell unless Victor agreed to hunt down a thief, a woman as deadly as she is beautiful. On a journey of murder and betrayal, Victor must now put his own soul at risk to save his only brother, battle a dark underground organization with the goal of nothing less than global war between Christians and Muslims, and fight creatures from man’s darkest nightmares. Then there’s the Hand of God, God’s own bounty hunter. In the end, will he be friend or enemy? Only Heaven knows.

Vengeance is an addiction, a need, a necessity.
Vengeance is all Samantha is living for.
They took her dignity; they caused her pain.
They will pay.
Samantha has come a long way from being the daughter of Satan’s right hand man. She’s been burned down to her soul, and she’s back to find the one who ordered her torture. Together with her best friend, an order of militant nuns, and a tech wizard, she’s out to take down the leader of the movement. In the battle between good and evil, faith and vengeance are all that are left.
This thriller is a continuation of the Victor McCain series, telling Samantha’s story between the events of The Speaker and Revenge.
Samantha Tyler is a kick-ass, take-no-prisoners kind of girl. She lives by her own set of slightly broken rules, and the drummer she marches to has cloven hooves.
She’s having just another normal day as a vigilante on the good side of the supernatural until an alarming call from her mentor, Sister Evangeline, prompts a trip across the sea to the Abbey of Sainte Aelis in France. One of the nuns and a local village woman are missing, unusual enough, but there are ominous whispers in the air leading everyone to believe an unholy creature is responsible.
When the trail of carnage leads back to a remote cabin in Kentucky, Samantha discovers a new horror is sipping the living soul from its victims. With the help of her best friend, Alex, the mysterious Abe Shepherd, and the enigmatic Declan, she uncovers one of the oldest and most fantastically alluring threats to mankind.

Just finished reading the book. Overall I found it very interesting. The only thing I saw that was wrong is that bounty hunter’s are not allowed to work or operate in the state. Any chance that there will be another book?
That’s the great thing about fiction. The truth is not always needed. You are only the second person to know that fact. I am finishing the sequel this month. Thanks for taking the time to read THOG.
Great, I can not wait to read it.
SPOILER ALERT THE WATCHERS One question? Will you reveal why you had Vic shoot Sam in the hip rather than the chest protector?
You described it as getting hit by a bull when Vic was shot in the chest with his protector on and he nearly was knocked out. It seems that if Vic shot sam in the chest she would have at least been knocked out long enough to subdue her and then Vic ciuld have taken a number of options to release the watchers without putting sams life in as much danger. Usually you have Vic making better decisions i must be missing something.
looking forward ti the next book.
SPOILER ALERT THE WATCHERS
Excellent question, Tony. The main reason for doing what he did is he was unsure how much of a punch Samantha could take with not just a fallen angel inside her, but the captain of all the Watchers. She is armed, after all, and he needed to make a quick decision. With the thoughts of what happened back in the warehouse with Deveraux and Mikey, it also clouded his thinking. I should have added this type of thought process to the story line. Thanks for asking for clarification. I guess what it boils down to is we don’t always make the smart decision under pressure, even someone like Vic. Thanks for taking the time to read the books and dropping me a line here on the blog.
