People from a church begin to die. The police can't call in accidental death or death by natural causes, because either on the person or at crime scene, and sometimes both, there is a note accusing them of committing a specific sin. These people attend Rev. Thomas Harmon's megachurch. His son Will, has been hanging around the wrong people trying to fit in. He just can't stand the hypocracy in the home anymore.
Former FBI agent Lisa Harmon, the pastor's brother, is called in to look at the case unofficially. She recognizes the work of a top assassin and calls upon a friend (who wants to be more than a friend) to help her check it out. Charlie Madison had his share of killing when he was in Special Ops, and now would like nothing better than to enter the ministry and settle down. He cares for Jasmine or "Jaz", his hearing-impaired niece. Together with local law enforcement officials they begin working on a case that seems to grow and get more confusing by the moment.
On the other side of this coin are a group of teens that have, for one reason or another, gotten into the occult. They hold sacrifices and black masses in a nearby woodland area. Their leader is thrilled at the appearance of a black-winged creature...until it nearly snatches away one of the girls from this group, and manages to carry away Will. The Angel of Wrath has come only it isn't what they expected. Only how do you fight a foe like this? Is this creature responsible for the deaths of the others, or are they working together somehow?
In Bill Myers' new release, ANGEL OF WRATH, we are introduced to spiritual warfare as only he can describe it to his readers. This is a follow up of his best-selling novel THE VOICE, so if you don't like to come in the middle of something (even though this can be read by itself quite well) you may want to get THE VOICE first, the start in on THE ANGEL OF WRATH. Either way ANGEL OF WRATH is worth your time.

Tangerine is the third book in the Shades of Style Novels.
Fans of Pink and Jade will eat up Tangerine, the third book in the cutting-edge Shades of Style series. Jean Guerra, a designer at Garments of Praise design firm, doesn't like surprises. These days though, the unexpected meets her everywhere. Since Jean's return to the church a year ago, her God-encounters occur with increasing frequency, along with thoughts of her husband-the one she vowed to divorce and gave up on long ago. The one nobody at work knows about, not even her best friend, Lily, or her boss, Chenille. But when the designer assigned to work with Jean on a line of men's suits shows up, her heart flips. It's her husband, Nigel Salvador. Jean is finally rendered speechless. Can her bruised heart become whole enough to love again? Or will she remain in the trenches of loneliness forever?
