a mystery

Available Easter 2015 from Chesterton Press!

Selena De La Cruz would like to leave the past behind as she plans her wedding ... but the past no longer sleeps.
In 1993, a Cardinal was murdered in Mexico at the Guadalajara Airport.  Nearly twenty years later, the Vatican revisits the case ... and finds that Selena's dead father might have played a key role.  Selena is forced to confront her family's ghosts ... in more ways than one...

"A wonderful ride!"
Regina Doman, author of The Midnight Dancers

"Gripping from page one, SPECTER builds on John Desjarlais' tradition of fast-paced, faith inspired fiction. You won't be able to put this one down, and you'll finish it wanting more!"
Lisa M. Hendey, author of The Grace of Yes and Founder of CatholicMom.com

"WHAT. A. BOOK. John Desjarlais has done it again. Whether this is your first encounter with his cast of characters or you consider them old friends, brace yourself for a charged plotline that's sure to keep you up all night turning the pages."
Sarah Reinhard, author and blogger, SnoringScholar.com

"Read this book to follow Reed and Selena. These two are right up there with (Dashiell Hammett's) Nick and Nora Charles."
John Konescni, author of A Pius Legacy
