Jay and Kevin are back in the third of the Father Jay series!
Something has to break in Father Jay's endless series of commitments, and it's turning out to be his health. Already disabled after driving over a land mine in Iraq, Jay is stretched to the max running a soup kitchen, sheltering homeless teens, and saying the occasional funeral for a fallen police officer. His parish is right in the middle of disputed gang territory, and the violence keeps spilling over into the church.
An agnostic cop, Kevin would love nothing more than for his brother Jay to leave the Church, but not this way: not feet first in a box. So Kevin offers his help to Jay, giving him respite while he regains his balance. But when a new kid shows up at the rectory asking for a place to stay, he's both brothers' worst nightmares.
He's the orphaned son of a murdered cop. And unless Jay can stop him, he's heading into the teeth of a gang war.
