Overview

Drama...Deception...Deliverance...With a level of confidence and style that most women would envy, De’Borah Harriston stands at the church sanctuary doors wearing a stylish designer ensemble so sophisticated and eye-catching that a trustee almost drops the collection plate and his religion trying to get another glance of her revealing low-cut neckline. De’Borah’s breasts are more out than some men in the choir. Clearly the older women in the house of worship are quite offended, but it makes no difference to De’Borah. It isn’t their attention or approval she is after.Pastor David Josiah Goodwell agonizes over the daunting task of having to destroy the bulk of everything his father, the Honorable Reverend Cecil Douglass Goodwell, built, including the family name, as he attempts to preach and teach the truth and power about Jesus Christ to a congregation that ultimately may prefer the sugar water, carefree, no accountability to God gospel that causes for the church membership to grow but not the people in it.You can’t have an affair with attorney Crystal Champagne Calloway’s husband, become pregnant with his child, leave text messages saying Crystal’s man is divorcing her, and then turn around and be the one behind releasing sex photos of her on the web--that she didn’t even know existed--while simultaneously being the unidentified newspaper source that has the police falsely charging her with aiding and abetting a money laundering drug cartel, and think you’re going to be taking Crystal’s kids to church and having them call you Mommy while she’s locked up in the penitentiary. Who you kidding?A secret society of prominent and corrupt Black pastors known as the Preachers’ Syndicate wields so much power in the Black community that their support can determine the winner of the upcoming presidential election. Will the killing of one of its members who had a change of heart result in solidifying the group’s power or mark the beginning of their demise?See how God’s love, power and redemption strengthen believers who are struggling to reach new heights in their faith and relationship with God even as their church and church leadership hit new lows.Author Description S.

    WOW!! A fantastic read!!

    Delilah's Revenge is a wonderful read. I appreciated the novel because of the effective blend of drama and deception with the combination of a Christian reality. This novel allowed me to escape, which is the ultimate treat of all fictional titles, but all the while forced me to reflect on situations as if I were a part of Delilah's world.

    Mr. Guitard's writing had me enthralled from the first chapter to the last page. And, for this reason, I cannot wait until the sequel, A Hot Mess, is released. It too, is sure to please readers, teach a lesson while forcing personal reflection, and entertain throughout.

    Thank you, Mr. Guitard, for writing a captivating novel with a creative plot, charismatic characters and a message that will continuously linger.

    Simply fabulous!

    Don't Mess With Delilah!

    As a member of the "Reading Is What We Do" Book Club, I had the utmost s pleasure of reading this captivating book by S. James Guitard! It was a delightful and "off the hook" dramatic work of literary wonder. Held spellbound by the well written characters and their sometimes outrageous behavior, this is a book you cannot put down..you will be tempted to take it with you wherever you go to make sure you don't miss a minute of what's going to happen next. An "out of this world" reading experience that shouldn't be missed by anyone out there who wants it all in one book. Delilah's Revenge definitely delivers a kick to your solar plexus and then some! Buy it for youself, buy it for your friends, tell them about it...just buy it now and become immensed in Delilah's world and how she seeks revenge at a price she's more than willing to pay!

    From the very first paragraph to the very last of Delilah's Revenge, S. James Guitard does an amazing job of captivating the reader! It is obvious that he takes his commitment to character development very seriously. Just when I thought that I had a character or a scenario figured out, Guitard threw in an element of surprise that provoked me to continue reading with a heightened sense of anticipation. The book's tagline is 'Drama...Deception...Deliverance' and Mr. Guitard certainly does not disappoint. Delilah's Revenge is also an awesome reminder of how God can use whomever He chooses. No one is perfect, but God will meet you where you are and give you what you need in order to do His perfect will. Mr. Guitard, thank you so much for allowing God to use you to bring forth this work of art that eloquently intertwines politics, hip-hop, mystery and ministry!

    In A League of Its own

    S. James Guitard's book, Delilah's Revenge is in a league of its own. The twists and turns, deception and secrets that intertwine politics, corruption and unyielding faith will draw you in and keep you glued. He creates a world of believable characters and familiar settings in ways few Christian fiction authors can achieve or have tackled.

    The author creates diverse plots thru characters that connect with church issues and real life issues. The story dilemmas, which include unfaithfulness, murder, blackmail, and revenge, are handled well. The characters invite the reader into a world that is believable for the Christian and non-Christian, young and old. There is no way for you to guess what will happen next!

    If you read one book . it should be Delilah's Revenge . plus the sequel, A Hot Mess. I couldn't wait to get it.
