Overview

Thirty years of unrequited revenge stuffed into the body of a high-powered combat cyborg.

Th e Philippines of the future is a dangerous place. A country ravaged by 20
years of Islamic civil war. A nation fractured by religious fundamentalism and socioeconomic decay-and a place General Rick Macey thought he'd never have to see again.

But when a political assassination takes place at the US embassy in
Manila, a calling card is left that Macey can hardly ignore.

Charged with mending US-Philippine relations, Macey must uncover the assassins, known only as The Tenth Crusaders, before the U.S. is accused of politically sabotaging the Philippines' eff orts to join the Islamic
Alliance of Oceania-a pan-Islamic Supercountry comprised of the former
Malaysia and Indonesia.

Failure could mean a new conflict between the U.S. and I.A.O., but to find the Crusaders, Macey will have to confront his past in the Philippines and the truth behind why he never wanted to return.

    A Wothry Sequel to ETERNITY FALLS!

    Kirk Outerbridge follows up his award-winning book, Eternity Falls, with this edge-of-your-seath cyber-thriller. Rick faces new challenges in The Tenth Crusader following a political assassination. US-Philippine relations are threatened, especially as the Philippines negotiates to join a new superpower, the Islamic Alliance of Oceania. To find the assassin, Macey must confront his past in a nation torn apart by religious fundamentalism from years of an Islamic civil war. Outerbridge won the 2010 Carol Award for Speculative Fiction (formerly the American Christian Fiction Writers award) for Eternity Falls. The Tenth Crusader is equally well-written but a little edgier. Rick and the assassin had a past relationship that he regrets, especially since getting married to Sheila and regaining his faith. When they meet again, there is sexual tension and temptation. However, it is a tightly-woven story with unexpected twists and plenty of action in each book. Rick is changed as a result of his spiritual choices, both past and present. Look for more Cyberthriller books, as The Tenth Crusader ends with at least one loose thread hanging. (excerpt from my review in Christian Library Journal, February 2011)

    Great Second Book in a Wonderful Series

    Great story line and deep characters. This is not a book that you are going to want to put down. Can't wait for a third book!
