ImageComing to terms with the loss of a love one is never easy. Regrets haunt P.D. Detective Jason Scarsdale, in the weeks following his young wife’s death, especially since he blames himself. 
 
When Scarsdale and his partner, Sean Harris of the Austin Police Departments, Sex Crimes Division are instructed to investigate a child molestation, they soon realize the case is far more involved than first appears. Their investigations lead them deep into a paedophile ring, whose tentacles reach far and wide, with repercussions which will affect them in ways they never could have foreseen.
 
When Jason becomes friendly with co-worker Dani Mueller he doesn’t realize that she has her own hidden secrets which will affect his life more than he could have ever imagined.
 
Cleverly written, with believable characters and great attention to detail, the author has made full use of his in-depth experience in both police and law departments, to write a brilliant crime thriller.
 
I thoroughly enjoyed reading this detailed and captivating story, which kept me guessing throughout with its twists and turns.

ABOUT WAKE UP, LAZARUS VOLUME II

 Wake Up, Lazarus Volume II

Pages: 328

ISBN – 978-1-93623-696-1

Today’s Catholic Church faces a major decline, and a dramatic renewal is needed to facilitate positive change.

In Wake Up, Lazarus! author Pierre Hegy documents the most important issues facing modern Catholicism and presents a convincing argument for renewal in the Catholic Church.

Wake Up, Lazarus! examines three general factors that contribute to the spiritual decline of all mainline churches and three factors that are special to the Catholic Church. Hegy describes the inner workings of two successful parishes—one evangelical and the other Catholic—to illustrate the strategies used that contribute to vibrant and growing church communities. He also reviews various renewal plans and then presents his personal, long-term plan for renewal in the Catholic Church, with practical implementation suggestions included in each step.

Hegy communicates that the strategy and principles of Catholic renewal must lead passive Sunday church-goers to become active participants; it must help active participants to become involved in parish life; and it must inspire all involved to become committed disciples.
