Of Gods and Madness: The Faithful

Justin D. Herd

A mobster learns he's becoming a god, only to discover they die too.

The right hand of the dominant mob family, Raine Morgan is tasked with hunting down two miscreants messing with the bottom line. He finds them on the docks, but, in the confusion of the fight, accidentally kills their victim and lets them escape. Horrified at what he's done, Raine seeks redemption as well as revenge.

Things spiral out of control when a greedy middleman overthrows Raine's mob organization. It's only with the help of a friend inside the crumbling mob as well as a streetwise artist that Raine remains undetected as he searches for the men who started this all. Raine doesn’t realize, however, he has caught the attention of a disparate conclave of gods in the process.

As the pantheon returns to the city they'd abandoned, old conflicts re-emerge, causing divine civil war. Both sides try to pull Raine to their side, expecting to find a naive god for them to manipulate. Instead, they find a man stripped of everything, intent on playing both sides as they learn an awful reality - even gods can die.

About the author

Justin D. Herd is a purveyor of the weird and strange. He occasionally squawks at friends and family, but does so only under the cover of night. Okay, that’s not true.

He squawks in full daylight.

Drinking games have been built around his peculiarities, but the truth of it is this: he is a loving husband, with two wonderful dem—children. One growls at things he likes. The other has started to learn hand-eye coordination. Neither had made it to the tender age of three.

From there, things will only get more interesting.

He’s the founder and patriarch of podcasts such as the Dubious Consumers, the Plotholes Lounge, as well as many more. You can find these, as well as follow Justin’s writing and career at http://www.justindherd.net/.
