Guardians of the Second Son
On the eve of an announcement he claims will send shockwaves through the world’s Christian community, a distinguished professor of religious studies is mysteriously found dead. When an ambitious colleague, Nolan Lemay, discovers that the announcement involved disclosure of a first century letter from the disciple Thomas, Lemay attempts to acquire the manuscript and finds his own life in danger.
When a leading professor at a top-ranked medical research institute accuses a colleague of drugging and sexually assaulting a student, department chair Brad Parker and university detective Karen Richmond join forces to investigate, only to be stymied by a victim who can’t remember what happened. But as fragments of memory resurface, she’s brutally attacked and murdered. The conclusion is obvious, but in the absence of forensic evidence, police hit a wall–until Brad and Karen’s inquiries take an unexpected turn that not only threatens their own lives, but exposes a cover-up at the highest levels of the university.
