Elijah: A Suspense Novel

by Frank Redman
 
Elijah Raven, 22, possesses an extraordinary gift-or to him-a curse. He's simply trying to overcome his past and get by in life. Well, and dream of a girl who's out of his league. He's not a thrill-seeking daredevil. Instead, he works as an IT tech at Buy City. His passion is for computers, a relatively safe endeavor. Not adventure.

He's already had enough adventure

Overview

Elijah Raven, 22, possesses an extraordinary gift-or to him-a curse. He's simply trying to overcome his past and get by in life. Well, and dream of a girl who's out of his league. He's not a thrill-seeking daredevil. Instead, he works as an IT tech at Buy City. His passion is for computers, a relatively safe endeavor. Not adventure.

He's already had enough adventure to last a lifetime.

But, animals won't grant his desire for peace. They communicate with him. He doesn't know how it works, but somehow animals sense that he can understand them. That sounds like it would be cool, except the problem is the animals don't tell him to throw the ball or give a treat. They tell him about the evil things they see. Abuse. Rape. Murder. He wants to mind his own business and reject diving headfirst into unknown dangers against his will. Instead, he's compelled to get involved. He cannot deny the call to action.

And the call screams when he stumbles upon the high crime abduction of children forced into prostitution by untouchable Corporate Executives, who believe anything that makes money is permissible in the world of High Finance.

Praise for ELIJAH

"If your destiny ever requires a walk through hell, make sure to take Elijah Raven with you. Both lighthearted and horrifying, Redman's debut novel stares down evil through the eyes of the best kind of hero: one who has survived it and won't leave anyone to suffer the same. ELIJAH is a thrilling page-turner that won't let you down."
- Erin Healy, author of THE BAKER'S WIFE and STRANGER THINGS

"Captivating, funny, suspenseful, heart-wrenching, believable, simply wow! Redman straps you into a front row seat of the protag's mind and sends you on a non-stop ride guaranteed to entertain."
- Claude Bouchard, USA Today Bestselling Author of the Vigilante Series

"I'm in awe of Frank's voice. It's captivating."
- Lynn Rush, New York Times & USA Today bestselling author of the Violet Night Trilogy

"Frank Redman is an author of startling insight and wonderful expression who brings to life his characters in such a way as to make you forget you are reading. They are living and breathing alongside you, a startling achievement for a new novelist. I highly anticipate reading more of Redman's work in the future. His is a voice that will shine on for many years to come."
-- Luke Romyn, USA Today and Amazon #1 bestselling author

"A strong first outing from Frank Redman who introduces us to Elijah Raven, a winsome Every-man who just happens to communicate with animals and has an uncanny knack for getting into trouble. Humor, romance, and supernatural intrigue follow in this fun, fast-paced novel. Looking forward to more from Frank Redman!"
- Mike Duran, author of THE GHOST BOX and SAINT DEATH

"A tech-savvy hero with the ability to hear animals, a dog obsessed with Cheetos, and a cat with a British accent... what's not to love? Filled with action, sardonic wit and a lovable cast of furry characters, you'll cheer for ELIJAH--a story of redemption in the midst of darkness, of saving those who can't save themselves."
-NYT bestselling author Tosca Lee

Meet the Author

Frank Redman worked with his wife at a children's home for four years before embarking on a twenty-year IT management career. He started writing in 2006 and spent three years studying the craft, alongside a young family and 60-hour work weeks. Dean Koontz became his mentor in 2009.

He began writing the novel ELIJAH in 2012. Then in April 2013, he was diagnosed with an incredibly rare form of brain cancer called gliomatosis cerebri. His expiration date was April 2014. Yet God has blessed him and he's still here.

After taking a year off to deal with treatments and the fear of whether he'd be able to write again, he finished the novel in 2015.

And along the way he evidently picked up the curiosity of writing about himself in third person.

He enjoys board games (Firefly!), video games, Magic the Gathering, reading, editing, and visiting with family and friends.

ELIJAH is about inspiring hope in readers, about heightening awareness of sexual abuse and child prostitution, while also encouraging a smile here and there. Frank's hope is that you will think about your real life experiences, how you can have happiness in spite of hardships, and about how you could help save a child.

As Elijah states early in the story, "Happiness is a choice, not a circumstance."

Influences include: Dean Koontz, Jim Butcher, Ted Dekker, Robert Ludlum, Kevin Hearne, James Scott Bell, Ray Bradbury, Rex Stout, and John D. MacDonald.

Frank lives with his wife, two children, and three rescued attack cats in Dallas/Fort Worth, Texas. But dreams of the mountains in Montana.
