ABOUT THIS SHORT STORY


Con man Zalmon and his gang of grifters fleece followers of Jesus Christ in biblical Galilee…until Vashti, a beautiful face from the past, makes an offer they can’t refuse: unless the grifters kidnap an Apostle, their crimes will be exposed to Christ and his army of disciples. Vashti plans to use the Apostle as leverage to get Christ to raise her lover from the dead, like Lazarus…but things don’t go exactly as she plans. Abduction leads to bloodshed, as Zalmon makes desperate choices, and powerful forces collide in a timeless struggle on the sands of Galilee.

Don’t miss this shocking biblical crime thriller, named an Honorable Mention in the 2016 edition of Year’s Best Crime & Mystery Stories.
