Assassination and perfidy are in the DNA of Olivier Deschamps.  However, unlike his extended family who thrives on the thrill of the kill and power of betrayal, Oliver is weary of murder and treachery by his siblings who are encouraged by their sire’s belief in survival of the deadliest.  He steals his family’s secret weapon the evil Silver ancient artifact before changing his name to Jude Oliver and vanishing. 

 

Over the next fifteen years Jude keeps a low profile having made only one friend Father Mike Engle since he deserted his family.  Olivier’s vile distaff side cousin Burke arrives and kills his neighbor with a bite before using a knife and magic to attack his relative in order to claim Silver.  Instead Jude kills Burke followed by the Patron Voice of “him” on his phone demanding he bring home the Silver. A desperate Jude visits Mike to tell him that he needs to find the one goodness artifact that can destroy Silver.  With adversaries wanting the Silver and them dead, and allies offering help, the former assassin and the priest begin a trek to find the Holy Grail and perhaps holiness within their souls.

 

This is an exciting Christian fantasy starring a fascinating pair on a quest to eliminate evil.  Their engaging journey introduces the duo and readers to demons, angels and biblical protagonists like Cain.  Fast-paced and bloody, fans will enjoy the aptly titled The Judas Line as Mark Everett Stone provides a fabulous thriller.
