Awards for Face Of Our Father


Praise for Face Of Our Father

“There’s more to the US involvement in the Middle East than what meets the eye. It is a grey area where you just don’t believe one side of the story. Face of Our Father is the one novel that shows both sides, proving that, aside from battles on the field we may win, there are battles within each of us, which we may lose.

 This novel is a fast-paced thriller…a mystery so gripping it keeps the reader hooked to the very end. What makes the character development remarkable is not their perfection, but, rather, their flaws. Highly recommended.”

“It is rare to encounter an action thriller that does not shy away from in-depth character study. While readers of Nelson DeMille and, to some extent, Ken Follett, have been spoiled by characters that are deeper then the thickness of the novel in which they are featured, it is unusual to find a new author daring to reach for such heights (or depths) and doing it successfully. As the nature of this type of a novel requires, there is plenty at stake here (the lives of the heroes and an airliner full of innocent passengers), as well as realistic moral complexity that allows us to find ourselves doubting the heroes’ purity of motives and, despite ourselves, feel a twisted sympathy, on some level, with the villains. Furthermore, in light of current events, the story could have been pulled off the evening news…a great thriller with a soul.”

“This novel has it all. How often does fiction change who we are? How we define courage, integrity, prejudice, and evil? To get at all that, a novel needs a rollercoaster of a plot coupled with an acute understanding of identity, love, and where these intersect. “Face of our Father” is too literary to be a thriller but too thrilling to put down. Go ahead. Challenge your beliefs. Read it.”

Face of Our Father

Like most empty nesters, Stuart and Angela Pierce are busy reinventing their lives. Stu reduces his airline flying schedule to train for triathlons, while Angie escapes the horrors of a prosecutor’s job to pursue pro bono work. But death threats soon prove that the only thing Angie escaped was the protective arm of the District Attorney’s office. With graphic photos of a ritual stoning as his only tangible clues, Stu sets out to protect a wife who refuses to protect herself. Obsessed with catching a murdering rapist, Angie plunges them both into a quagmire of global intrigue. But who, indeed what, is the real enemy? Honor. Love. Life. All are at stake as the Pierces struggle to uncover the truth, both the enemy’s, and their own.
