Order of Thaddeus

Deadly Hope

Book 10

A Strange Blessing. A Mysterious Contagion. Is There Hope for Humanity?


Silas Grey just wanted one day to himself. One day that he wasn’t protecting the Christian faith from no uncertain doom—free from car chases, gunfights, and cultic conspiracies. R&R will have to wait another day!

Because something strange is happening in a small Michigan town: a revival service making promises it can’t keep with feathers falling from the heavens that echoes rumors of promised blessings across the globe.

When those strange religious rumors bloom into mysterious healings on top a threatening global contagion, it’s time for the Order of Thaddeus to activate its SEPIO unit, the Church’s ancient defender.

In a race to save humanity and the faith, SEPIO needs to unravel the mystery of the strange blessings to find a cure and offer the world hope—catapulting them into another action-packed adventure with an unexpected ending.

Combining faith, fact, and fiction like few religious writers, J. A. Bouma weaves together a page-turning, suspenseful mystery ripped from the headlines—plumbing the depths of our human hope for this life.

If you love James Rollins and Steve Berry—devour the 10th book in the explosively inventive religious conspiracy series today!


Best Selling Author

J. A. Bouma

J. A. Bouma believes nobody should have to read bad religious fiction—whether its cheesy plots with pat answers or misrepresentations of the Christian faith and the Bible. So he wants to do something about it by telling compelling, propulsive stories that thrill as much as inspire, while offering a dose of insight along the way.

When not putting fingers to keyboard, he loves vintage jazz vinyl, a glass of Malbec, and an epic read—preferably together. He lives in Grand Rapids with his wife, two kiddos, and rambunctious boxer-pug-terrier.
