Overview

From the award-winning author of Dark Corner and The Other Brother comes an unforgettable thriller of family secrets, toxic faith, and high-tech suspense.

On a golden summer morning, fifteen-year-old Anthony Thorne is on a fishing boat with his father, rods cast into the lake, when the crack of a rifle shatters the silence. His father slumps forward, blood leaking from his chest. Horrified, Anthony spins in the direction of the gunfire, and sees a shadowy figure race away from the shore and vanish in the cover of the trees--a vision that will haunt him for years to come . . .

Anthony pulls his dad into his arms, but he is beyond help. He dies in Anthony's embrace, Anthony's scream of anguish echoing across the still waters.

Fifteen years later, a happily married Marine veteran and author of a bestselling series of crime novels, Anthony has achieved a measure of success. But the past still haunts him--in spite of his eyewitness testimony, his father's murder was declared a hunting accident, and no one was ever brought to justice.

On the anniversary of his father's death, a mysterious message arrives from an unknown sender that promises to lead Anthony to the truth. But is Anthony's helper the angel he'd been waiting for--or a devil in disguise?

Determined to find answers, Anthony and his wife soon find themselves hunted by a team of assassins dispatched by a powerful organization with frightening technological resources. The killers pursuing them are as fanatical in their beliefs as they are well-equipped--loyal followers of a charismatic leader who might be the most dangerous man in America . . .

Lightning-paced and gripping from the first sentence to the explosive finale, Covenant marks Brandon Massey's entry into the arena of high-stakes action thrillers--a story exploring today's issues that will resonate with readers long after they've turned the last page.

I started reading Brandon Massey because I am a fan of horror and I was excited to see the use of African American characters. I have to say that I was not disappointed by his foray into the suspense and thriller genre at all! Covenant was fast paced and had good character development. I was impressed at how he worked in the theme about "being watched" and monitored by a "Big Brother" organization. Who hasn't thought about that?? I have enjoyed the horror novels Mr. Massey has done in the past but I have to say I'd like him to keep the story lines coming from the suspense/action thriller vein. I'd love to see a novel from him from the spy thriller genre as well. You won't be able to put this one down. Welcome back Brandon, this one was worth the wait and Anthony Thorne was a formidable character!

I love when authors step away from a typical plot to explore in to roads unpaved and this book does just that , a must read.

Ive never been a big fan of this type of book, but this one got my interest right off the bat. Its nice to read something contemporary. I liked the up to date technology aspect the most. Ive seen the damage for real, that can be done by a motivated speaker of personal interpretation. The power it can comand a "world wide" following. Fast paced, and rellavent. This easily could have been a true account instead of fiction. I truely enjoyed this book. It could be a wake up call for many. Thanks Brandon, a great read for anyone.

I expected some supernatural twists but there were none......just a lot of brain power....the power and possibilities of technology is amazing. I enjoyed following the characters on their journey to the truth. All in all, a good read. On to the next...
