“Written with a rare authenticity, Gavin Reese’s ‘The Absolver’ hits hard and leaves an impression on both gut and heart. I’ll be first in line to see where this story and character go next.” — James Rollins, New York Times bestseller of the Sigma Force Series
“‘The Confession’ is a short, jabbing novella that hits you like a throat punch. It will leave you thinking about the hard realities of the temporal and the eternal, and that’s the best kind of fiction there is.” — Mike Maden, international bestselling author of the Drone Series and Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan, Jr., novels
“‘The Absolver’ is a fascinating story that sounds so plausible, one can almost wonder if there isn’t some underlying truth to a Vatican group of assassins, looking to win good over evil. A great, well written story that I thoroughly enjoyed, and I strongly recommend this book.” — Book Review Crew
THE CONFESSION (PREQUEL)
Michael Thomas is neck-deep in personal conflict. He left the police force to become a parish priest and now, while serving a congregation in the slums of Bogotá, Columbia, Michael is forced to confront his own demons when a predator confesses his sins.
Father Michael Thomas is sent to an isolated compound in rural Wyoming. Alongside a handful of trainees, he lives under an assumed name, learns the skills of a moral investigator and clandestine operative, and faces the ethical dilemma repeatedly placed before him: when is a deliberate death a righteous act?
With his clandestine training program and first assignment complete, Michael receives orders to investigate a member of Austria’s high society. Meanwhile, betrayal within their own ranks threatens to expose the organization to the world and destroy their efforts to cleanse evil from the Earth.
Amid suspicions that his clandestine hierarchy is turning on their own, Michael is dispatched to an urgent assignment in Paris. Many hundreds of innocent lives are at stake, and he’s running out of time to stop an ethnic genocide. Two unorthodox absolutions already haunt his dreams and, if he’s successful, Michael will officially become one of the monsters he hunts.
A priest in a historic London church has again heard confessions from a man who wants to be a new Jack the Ripper. Although he’s confessed to the brutal killings of several women in the city’s famed East End, there’s never been a body that proved his crimes. Until now…
If Michael is to save London from its latest monster, he and his team will have to risk their lives and their own salvation. As the memories of recent victims cry out for justice, the killer turns on the team and threatens Michael with a fate far worse than death.
