About this title

Synopsis:

"A BREATHTAKINGLY ACCOMPLISHED NOVEL, A PASSION PLAY FOR OUR TIME."
--Ft. Lauderdale Sun-Sentinel

Alex Leonard entered Alson Pierce's home with a rope, a knife, and a gun and savagely murdered Pierce's wife and child. Now, Reverend Pierce enters Leonard's prison cell with Christ's command to love thy enemy. . . .

"EVERETT KEEPS THE POT BOILING UNTIL THE FINAL PAGE TURNS."
--Detroit Free Press

And while some call Pierce a saint and others a madman, only he and his God know the truth behind his mission--and the darkness that awaits. . . .

"MESMERIZING."
--Seattle Times

From the Publisher:

"Dead Man Walking recast as a searing psychological thriller ... Everett not only keeps the suspense taut till the last page, but pulls off the most explosive novel of religious redemption since Flannery O'Connor."
-- Kirkus Reviews

"Gabriel Everett's A Story of Scorpions is the most gripping fictional account of cold-blooded murder I've ever read. At the same time, it is a remarkably humane and intelligent exploration of one man's quest, first for revenge and then for redemption, in a world that has taken from him everything that matters: his family."
-- Howard Frank Mosher, Author of A Stranger in the Kingdom and Northern Borders

"Everett writes with a sure and compelling voice ... A Story of Scorpions evolves seamlessly, pulling the reader along credibly and with a heightened, almost frantic sense of urgency. The author's promise keeps us turning pages feverishly both anticipating and fearing the ending, an ending that surprises as well as satisfies. What a terrific book!"
-- Ridley Pearson, Author of No Witnesses
