Overview

In a future where civil rights are only a distant memory, a man more ordinary than the ordinary man shakes off the shackles of a western lifestyle in a quest to teach peace, love, and happiness to anyone who will listen. Deep Scan, a paranoid government computer profiling system, flags this man as a terrorist - a threat to the American way of life - which begins dramatic chain of events that will forever change his life, and the lives of the federal agents who are sent to investigate him. Here's what the experts say: "Charming and engaging, this inspirational thriller is a definite page turner. Agents Kyle Brandston and Lynn Speigel work for The Agency, a counter-terrorist organization. They have been asked to look into the case of a man suspected of being a terrorist, Sabah Al-Zaman. Previous agents who have looked into his case have never filed any reports and mysteriously quit their jobs. According to Deep Scan, a top-secret government computer profiling system, Sabah is still considered a threat to the country. Meanwhile, Sabah, who believes happiness is the ultimate goal in life, is behaving far more like a prophet than a terrorist. Telling stories and parables daily to crowds as well as helping individual people understand life’s purpose. After brutal attacks on Sabah, Lynn, and Kyle, it appears that the real terrorists are a group called The Will of God, an extreme fundamentalist militia. Filled with thought-provoking episodes, this futuristic look at Big Brother and the importance of living and enjoying the present moment is a timely piece of fiction. The stories Sabah tells are enlightening without being preachy, while characters are realistically changed and developed through the course of the novel. While some readers may be put off by the fundamentalist themes presented later in the book, its honesty and ability to absorb, amuse and inspire will dispel most discomfort." - Publisher's Weekly

    wise and inspiring, with a swirl of adventure and suspense

    Angel Phoenix blends suspense and adventure with a wonderful blend of wisdom and parable that is life changing for the characters in the book; as well as for the reader. The politically relevant setting (and the fact that the book was set in my hometown of phoenix) made the story come alive as agents track down a threat to national security. Along the way, we are treated to delightful parables of thinking gone awry that result in life problems; as the parables resolve the reader cannot help but question their own automatic trip through Life.
    This highly engrossing read is highly recommended for it's versatility--the parables stand alone as wise little bedtime stories for young people and some for the youngest people.
