Overview

Forensic anthropologist Erica Braxton, Joshua's daughter and a quadriplegic, downs a lethal barbituate in the opening scene of Gabriel's Covenant. Forty-five minutes later Frau Schroder, a registered anesthetist in Zurich, pronounces her dead. Joshua could have stopped the killing . . . her assisted suicide. He chooses not to.Why?
There is an answer. It's buried inside Joshua and becomes curiously tangled in the history of Gabriel's Crossing, a rural town in central Oregon.Joshua and his lifelong friend, Norm MacAllaster quickly discover it's a Thornton Wilder, Grover's Corners kind of place where the living and the dead are sometimes not remembered, for reasons buried deep within the collective conscience of one family, the Armstrongs.
Following Joshua and Norm as they unwind the mystery behind why a mummified, nameless child was killed, is a chilling, heartfelt journey touching on the timeless fear people have of dying and the turmoil end-of-life circumstances present. Both the fear and turmoil felt by the principle characters is dramatically explored with deserved frankness, touching insight, humor, and empathy for their shared vulnerabilities.

Editorial Reviews

Amazon - Scott Williams
Where to begin? First, What a great read! Mr Watson has written a book engendering all the questions we avoid asking about death and dying, wrapped inside an engaging story of a man, his daughter, his best friend, his sheltie, Tas, and the ghostly presence of his deceased wife . . . Engaged from the first paragraph, this is perhaps one of best mysteries I've read in years . . . Cover to cover, I could not put it down.. Recommend it highly for anyone ready for a great journey.

Meet the Author

I'm the recent author of two novels, Gabriel's Covenant and Leaving the Bones Behind. My passion as a writer is to tell stories about characters challenged with dilemmas and forced to make choices which lead them along paths most might consider immoral or unethical. With an education rooted in comparative literature and a PhD in science my career has come full circle. I've been a scientist, paper maker, inventor, international business leader, and now a full time writer ... a teller of stories. Perhaps it is true. We are what we were and my early literary underpinnings needed the perspective of the rest of my life to find expression. I invite you to poke around on my website and find out more about me and the stories I tell at www.garywatsonbooks.com.
