A Portion of Malice: Ages of Malice, Book I

A Thriller for Thinkers!

A brazen, edge of your seat tale of God, humanity, and the battle between good and evil.
A Portion of Malice is a fast paced, religious thriller that explores the razor’s edge between sanity, lunacy, and the cost of every choice.

Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Emery Merrick presses a pistol to his temple. Then there’s a knock at the door. Billionaire Thaddeus Drake hires Emery to write his biography. But Drake has a dark secret, and Emery quickly discovers he heads an ancient, secret society which aims to fulfill prophecy and sacrifice the Earth to a bloodthirsty God. Deep and emotionally stirring, Emery finds himself plunged into an immortal world of darkness, deceit, and barbarity.

This thought-provoking thrill-ride chronicles one man’s explosive journey into the apocalypse and one man’s epic quest to confront God as an equal. A captivating odyssey through history and time, A Portion of Malice changes the conversation about spirituality, redemption, and the world in which we live.

If you enjoy works by Stephen King and Dan Brown, you’ll be blown away by A Portion of Malice’s controversial plot and surprise twist ending. It’s the first book in the epic series,  Ages of Malice.

Humanity hangs by a slender thread! 

Will one man make a difference?
