However, things are not what they seem. These four friends hold more authority than any men rightly should. The full package, they have charisma, good looks, money, and Ivy League resumes. To the average layman, these church overseers are the epitome of what a spiritual guru should be, but to the keen observer, they are more feared than loved.
To those enlightened by truth, the reality of their identities is clear. James, Carlos, George, and Arthur are not "men of the cloth" but gangsters who run both their churches and the streets with dictatorial glee. With rumors of ties to the Illuminati circulating, these four prominent pastors are now catapulted from the crime-riddled streets of Jacksonville, Florida, to the forefront of a secret, national movement that threatens lives and even souls.
Granny James calms her granddaughter’s fears at giving her whole heart to Danny Mac. Mrs. Gage, the incredible International Woman of Mystery, pulls off an impromptu wedding extraordinaire. Andy, CIA operative, and Judy, Kenann’s best friend, finally declare their love and orchestrate a diversion to allow Danny Mac and Kenann to honeymoon away from the threat of their enemies. Unfortunately, their ranks are infiltrated and Danny Mac and Kenann are forced to defend themselves at their remote cabin. Danny Mac soon finds his new bride stays cool under pressure and is skilled in combat. His kind of woman.
Carter, the CIA section chief, returns and enlists the crew (officially this time) to assist government forces in going after the secret society who have set their sights on Danny Mac and Kenann. Every man, woman (and boy) comes back on deck. The Band picks up a few new members along the way as their quest takes them to Istanbul and the Carpathian Mountains of Transylvania to strike the death blow to this insidious enemy.
After being pulled off the street in Istanbul, Kenann must once again assume the guise of Inanna, the ancient goddess of Sumeria. But is it a guise? Sometimes she cannot tell. She moves from captive to mistress of the Transylvanian castle in a delicate balance to keep Danny Mac alive. Things go terribly wrong requiring Kenann to once again become a killer.
Don’t miss this Merry Band of Misfits’ next adventure as you are drawn into passionate love stories and the dark madness of pure evil. You will see faith challenged and the Lord doing what he does best. Settle back, get comfortable and enjoy the ride.
