Emerging criminal defense attorney Sam Young has always known he had a gift. Or a curse. He thinks of them as minor psychic abilities. When Sam is hired by an attractive young nun named Camille Paradisi, he agrees to help discover the identity of a serial killer in order to prevent Camille’s pastor from being exposed for not reporting the man after a confession – thereby allowing another murder to occur. While Sam’s psychic abilities increase as he investigates the case and gets closer to Camille, he realizes that the enigmatic nun is not revealing the complete truth.
Camille shares an old journal anonymously mailed to the church, which she believes may have been authored by the killer/confessor. The journal, which begins in Argentina in the 1940’s, purports to tell the life story of a man with mind control and other special powers who claims to be a descendant of the fallen angels cast out of heaven by God. As Sam learns more about the murders, the journal author, and Camille, he begins to realize the so called “Rosslyn Ripper” case may have ancient implications beyond his imagination.
Constant suspense provided throught brilliant writing.
This is a very well written murder mystery! I loved the constant suspense provided through brilliant writing. This is a smooth read with perfect editing. The characters are very well developed, and every reader will relate to, at least one of the characters; personally, I connected to three different characters.
Almost Mortal is 235 pages, so it isn’t a really short book, but the suspense made it an extremely quick read; it’s next to impossible to put down! I highly recommend this to anyone who loves great stories! Seriously! What could be better than a “not very religious” public attorney working for his court appointed cases; while also taking on “side cases” for high profile criminals, gamblers, crack dealers, drug users, a Catholic Priest, and a nun,? There is so much more I could say, but not without giving away significant parts of the story. There are so many surprising characters with so many twists; you’ll feel like you’re driving through San Francisco!
I give Leibig a 5 Boundless star rating, with complete confidence that it is genuinely earned for writing Almost Mortal. I look forward to rating his second book in this series....Beth
