When Tom stepped onto the plane, he knew he was making a choice that would change his life. But he had no idea how much. Author Travis Thrasher says, "The Second Thief is a story about a man who survives a plane accident and has a second chance at life. As he runs from his present mistakes while making amends for past ones, he comes to grips with his own lack of faith."
This fast-moving, unpredictable story asks the question, "Is it ever too late to redeem past mistakes?" Its central character, Tom, realistically represents the skepticism and doubt of many people today who simply don't buy into Christianity. Faced with a new opportunity and a chance to change, what will be his decision? Readers of all ages will enjoy the suspense of Tom's journey and its unexpected, dramatic conclusion.

HE CAN’T SEEM TO SHAKE ONE THOUGHT: WHY ME?
Meet Tom Ledger. Disillusioned. Bored. In search of comfort and ease. Willing to sell his soul—or at least his employer’s most closely guarded secret— to the highest bidder.
Tom has no way of knowing that within hours of committing his first felony he’ll be catapulted into a high-stakes drama as the airplane he’s on drops like a rock into a Nebraska cornfield. But as he faces what could be the final moments of his life, even his pitiful attempt at prayer is self-serving; “Please God please let me live.”
Author Travis Thrasher takes readers on a fast-paced journey through the seamy underworld Tom encounters after the plane crash—replete with industrial espionage, terror, even cold-blooded gangland murder. As Tom confronts his past and all its consequences, he has some decisions to make—life-or-death decisions. Will he continue on the path that threatens to destroy everything he once held dear, or can he find another way home?
Travis Thrasher’s thought-provoking story will cause you to take a fresh look at the second chances we get every day. The Second Thief is well-written, moving, and full of perspective.
RANDY ALCORN, author of Edge of Eternity and Safely Home
