FREE KINDLE E-BOOK ALERT: Off the Hook by A. Jesus Wrighter
Off the Hook by A. Jesus Wrighter
He Loves Preaching, But Hates Pastoring. Now An Old Flame Wants To Pin A Murder On Him.
Father Dowling meets Shaft in the tony Newark suburb of Belton, NJ, where the growing black population commands the highest per capita income, and Rev. Dr. Tony Hook, the financially strapped pastor of the village's only black church, is conscripted by the village administration to help increase the white population. When the sexy Anemone Allon's body turns up in her basement naked, sporting a hole through the head, the only evidence recovered from the scene is Hook's DNA, and all he can offer for an alibi is that he was alone in his study, yelling at God. Golden-eyed detective Sgt. Chris Sears sets her sights on him as her prime suspect, jeopardizing his secret candidacy for a much higher-paying Newark pulpit, and Hook launches his own investigation into the murder. With an anonymous rival who will stop at nothing to get him out of the way, and a crusty trustee who will try almost anything to get rid of him also breathing down his neck, only heaven can help Hook out of this mess, but it seems silent and unconcerned. Pursued by good and hounded by evil, poisoned by deadly wildlife and stricken with writer's block, Hook must overcome Jobian loss and ugly suits, resist witchcraft, brave fire, dodge bullets, survive explosions, and tame ravenous beasts to track down the killer; but will it be enough, and in time, to get him Off the Hook?
As the body count rises, and in spite of "help" from his iconoclastic best buddy, Rev. Cornel Brown, and his nutty adopted mother, Freddie Pearl, Hook unravels the mystery, exposing the killer in a final confrontation before the entire village. In the end almost no one is who they appeared to be in this clerical romp, and Hook realizes that even for prejects some clichés are built on truth: home is where the heart is, and the grass isn't always greener on the other side.
