“In Delaney’s debut, Christian-themed thriller, a Texas youth minister becomes the target of a diabolical group that’s assassinating members of a religious movement. The story’s swift pace leads to a rousing, winter showdown between Andrew and Nicolai involving the titular cold, dark mine shaft. A tight, suspenseful tale…”
Perfect for fans of Frank Peretti and Joel Rosenberg, The Shaft explores the questions of greed and morality in the world of pharmaceuticals and biotechnology. In this riveting supernatural thriller, a chilling murder spree places a church leader in the crosshairs of a killer determined to stop a religious movement. Delaney reminds us that we are called to great responsibility on both a personal and professional front and that on this journey, angels are at work behind the scenes in ways we can only imagine.
It is December 2017 and a sweeping religious movement is gaining traction in the United States. As spiritual leaders diligently work to spread the Word of God to the people, liberal factions in the world of pharmaceutical and scientific development create a secret society with a dark mission: to thwart the group’s conservative impact on what society considers to be morally acceptable. As a string of church-related murders plague the nation, the FBI and local authorities race to locate the assassin responsible.
When the members of the secret society realize that the murders are not stopping or slowing the threat, they resort to kidnapping. One of their abductees is Andrew Morrison, a key leader of “The Call” ministry. After he manages to escape from his captors in Texas, he must identify and locate his family as well as the killer of many of his friends that were fellow leaders in this ministry. But as angelic hosts enter the scene to protect and intervene, now only time will tell who will win this compelling battle of good versus evil as a church movement attempts to make a meaningful impact on the world.
“Bravo, Scott! Bravo!! by RGD”
Excellent!! Exceeded all of my expectations and couldn’t be more proud of my brother. I literally read this book cover to cover on a flight from Atlanta to Phoenix and that has rarely if ever happened to me. The story and locations depicted in this novel were very familiar and brought back many fond memories of my childhood and time with my very special Christian Family. Scott, I enjoyed your first book more than words can say and look forward for more to come. Congrats and job well done on a great novel!!
