The Children's Crusade by Elliott Hall


The Children's Crusade by Elliott Hall

PI Felix Strange is working his last case. The woman he loves has been taken by Fisher Partners - America's for-profit secret police - and, though he suspects he won't find her, he's going to do the next best thing: kill everyone involved.As he works his way down the list, Strange is offered a secret deal, which could lead him straight to Iris. Across the American South, the militant Sons of David are on the rise. Their leader, the prophet Joshua, promises a new world to replace the sinful old. To free Iris, all Strange has to do is assassinate this new messiah. The problem? He's twelve years old.
