About J.P. Jordan's Second Novel
A professional crew of burglars has cracked several nearly impenetrable safes, stealing millions of dollars in diamonds and gold. Detectives Chuck Nowitzke and Anissa Taylor are called upon to investigate the highly sophisticated theft, but after they arrest one of the prime suspects, he is assassinated by an unknown boogeyman who is pulling the strings on a series of serious crimes against jewelers.
As the increasingly violent pattern of felonies continues, an insurance underwriter begins to receive messages from a mysterious texter making a connection between the crimes. Yet even with this information, law enforcement remains a step behind at every turn, until the unknown informant provides details about a final heist that will rival all others. Nowitzke and Anissa are in a race against time to stop the dangerous boogeyman before he disappears forever.
Having reluctantly accepted a job from family friend and CEO Emil Swenson, former pararescueman Nick Hayden quickly transitions from rescuing soldiers in Afghanistan to desk jockeying at Weston, a Wisconsin-based insurance company. He’s tasked with closing a failing division responsible for insuring religious institutions, but recent investigations surrounding the murder of a formerly insured priest, a known pedophile, leave Nick feeling suspicious. Without any leads except a cryptic letter found at the crime scene, the case quickly goes cold, but another murder of a previously insured religious leader leads Nick to a chilling realization: a serial killer is on the hunt. When more obscure messages lead him to believe the next target has been chosen, the race to stop the ruthless killer begins.
WHAT READERS ARE SAYING
"Jim Jordan’s debut novel is a fascinating tale tying together the current abuses of the church with the insurance world. The characters and story kept me engaged with many unexpected twists right to the end. Men of God takes a rightful place alongside of other best-selling mystery fiction novels."
