About the Book

Sooner or later it had to happen…

High above Manhattan’s Fifth Avenue, Joseph Turner, a young construction worker tries to rescue a fellow worker trapped on a swaying iron girder. In his attempt he slips and plunges twenty-four stories to the pavement below-not to death, but to a strange new life. His survival heralds a series of “miracles” not seen in almost 2000 years…

Suddenly Joseph Turner’s hands have the ability to heal, his words have the authority to soothe angry mobs–or incite his thousands of believers to revolution. And around the world, international leaders realize that Joseph Turner’s unexpected powers are a real threat to the religious, corporate and government structures in which their own power lies.

All of these men are searching for a way to ruin Joseph Turner–while his followers increase by the thousands. But their search seems to be hopeless, until they discover Maggie Dillon, the only woman Joseph had ever loved–a woman whose notorious past could destroy them both!

THE SECOND SON is the powerful drama of a simple man’s rise as a charismatic world leader–filled with international kidnappings, a tension-filled assassination plot, and intrigue from the Vatican to the U.S. Presidency. But THE SECOND SON is also a tender, passionate love story and above all, gripping edge-of-the-seat entertainment.
