The Molech Prophecy
Whitaker House, May 2008, $12.99
His mother was an alcoholic and he had no one else so Tommy Cucinelle turned to gangs for a sense of belonging to a family. In time he started to sell drugs for a person high up in a criminal organization. Eventually Tommy began finding people who owed the crime lord money and turned it over to him. He used force when the debtors balked. His life changed dramatically when his younger brother was diagnosed with cancer yet told Tommy he was not afraid of dying because he knew he would be with Jesus. Tommy started reading the bible and eventually turned his life over to Christ.
Senior Pastor Ross Lahore asks Tommy to help him locate his former secretary Nancy who vanished. The pastor feels guilty because he sensed she was troubled, but he failed to act by counseling her. Using skills he developed on the streets as a thug, Tommy investigates. He meets the Nancy’s sister Stacy, who is also worried about her missing sibling as her vanishing is out of character. Their search leads to the Wiccan Church New Forest, but once there everyone involved in the investigation ends up in trouble.
THE MOLECH PROPHECY is a thrill a minute chiller filled with action interspersed with the protagonist’s efforts to lead a better life than he has. Tommy does not expect the search to land him or his cohorts in any trouble. However, he soon learns how wrong his logic proves as he realizes Nancy had secrets, said goodbye to loved ones, and was associated with some dangerous people. Thomas Phillips shows that faith in Christ helps people through the darkest times when hope seems as distant as a star.
