Pius History: The Facts Behind the Pius Trilogy

[two_third_first]Ever wonder about what was fact or fiction in your favorite thriller? How much was made up or how much was just to push the story along? Well, wonder no longer as Declan Finn pulls back the curtain on his epic trilogy to show you his meticulous, painstaking research. Did his fictional pope grow up in a world as rough as described? Are the bad guys really that motivated to end the church? Are some of the weapons real? Did Pius XII really take a side for or against the Nazis? This book has the answers you’re looking for.

A Stitch In Space

[two_third_first]

A long and dangerous voyage to a strange new world

In the year 2462, Father Guerin voyages to a new world, like the priests who sailed the Atlantic in the 1700s. Joined by three other passengers and the crew of the cargo ship Hopeful, he sets off for the recently colonized planet Xanadu. What kind of person spends half a year cut off from the rest of humanity by the vast distances of interstellar space? What will they make of the over-educated and over-confident priest?

And how will they cope when the space pirates attack?

The Dean Died Over Winter Break: The Chronicles of Brother Thomas Book 1

[two_third_first]

Dean Floden is dead!

Winter break is normally a peaceful time at the university, especially during a blizzard. So it shocked everyone when they found the dean murdered at his desk. Thanks to an empty campus, there are no witnesses and police have little to go on. With the police stymied, and hoping to wrap up the investigation before students return for the spring semester, the president of the university has turned to the Franciscan Brothers of Investigation for help.

Jovial and mild mannered Brother Francis arrived on the scene to find a jealous mistress, a clever drug dealer, a disappointed researcher, and a mortally insulted professor on his short list of suspects. Did one of them do the other three a huge favor? Or was it someone else entirely?

Ellis Peters’ Brother Cadfael meets G.K. Chesterton’s Father Brown in this old school cozy.
