"The Molech Prophecy" is a supernatural thriller with bite! I found myself turning pages almost faster than I could read, wanting to get to the bottom of the mystery surrounding former bad boy Tommy Cucinelle (say that name three times fast!
Knowing who Tommy was before he came to Christ, Pastor Ross asks him to investigate the disappearance of his administrative assistant, Nancy Callahan. She just vanished one day, her desk cleaned out and no word as to why.
Occult graffiti has been sprayed on Tommy's home church, Faith Community. Too much has happened all at once, leaving new believer Tommy feeling overwhelmed and confused.
With his former bad boy buddy and now brother in Christ, Tay, on his team, Tommy searches out old associates to help him find the missing woman and get to the bottom of her disappearance.
Questions abound, like is the graffiti connected to the vanishing? Who is Alex Farrar, and how is he tied to Gerald Farrar, "pastor" of the wiccan church? What has Nancy fallen prey to, and why is Pastor Ross so interested in the matter?
Thomas Phillips tackled an ambitious first novel; in addition to the mystery, we have the back story of Tommy's younger brother, Nick. I won't say anymore...except to have tissues handy!
This debut supernatural thriller is a great read! Thomas has created some very believable and likable characters and a scenario that is both entertaining and chilling.
With this promising first novel, I'm giving "The Molech Prophecy" four out of five bookmarks, with a can of paint as a charm to help repair the damage by the vandals. I'm looking forward to more exciting fiction from Thomas Phillips!
