Geoff Loftus

Jack Tyrrell was a burn out. A former Green Beret and U.S. Marshal, he's become a drunken loser who, once upon a time, accepted a bribe and was shot by the people who bribed him. Tyrrell survived the shooting. His wife, Maggie, did not. Five years after her death, Maggie appears to him as a ghost and offers him a chance to make things right. She introduces Tyrrell to Harry, who may literally be heaven-sent. Tyrrell, with Harry working as his case manager, sets out to help a veteran who's suffering from PTSD and has assassinated a pair of Wall Street CEOs. Action, murdered Wall Street titans, the Russian mafia, and a beautiful woman mix with questions regarding free will and what constitutes moral behavior to give this thriller a spiritual edge. "Can one author combine a thriller, a romance and a ghost story? Geoff Loftus does so admirably in his fast-paced, well written and engrossing new novel about a man given a second chance from a wholly unexpected source: his dead wife, whose murder he holds himself responsible for. Let this one-of-a-kind story teach you something about love, forgiveness and even faith." - James Martin, SJ, bestselling author of "A Jesuit Guide to (Almost) Everything" and "The Abbey" The mix of Charles Dickens, Philip K. Dick and a terrific action story told by a sad, yet funny narrator is wonderfully entertaining and spiritually engaging. A great read.
