Child Finder: Revelation is the highly-anticipated conclusion to the Child Finder Trilogy. The Library Journal called the series’ first novel, Child Finder, “a compelling debut novel,” and, “a real find,” and placed it on its prestigious Summer Reads List for 2009. Both the debut novel and the trilogy’s second story, Child Finder: Resurrection, earned national level book awards.
In Child Finder: Revelation, United States Air Force Office of Special Investigations Special Agent Patrick O’Donnell faces his most challenging – and life-threatening – mission. North Korean terrorists stage a brazen attack on the U.S. Ambassador to South Korea, stealing his twin daughters in the assault. The eight-year-old girls are powerful psychics with amazing extrasensory gifts, and it is clear that the North Koreans abducted them because of these abilities.
Only one man can rescue them. Patrick O’Donnell is the government’s top agent with his own psychic abilities…skills crucial to finding the Ambassador’s daughters deep inside North Korea. From the outset of the operation, O’Donnell senses there is much more about these girls that goes unspoken. Head nods. Winks. Secrets shared between his boss, the President of the United States, and the Vatican. These are all signs of a mystery to which he is not privy. One thing is made clear in abundance: he must rescue the girls and bring them back to America with an urgency he has never experienced before.
He seeks guidance and counsel in his Catholic faith, and during his recitation of the Holy Rosary, the Virgin Mary speaks to him. Her words carry as much seriousness about the rescue as his conversations with his mentor and the President. The one thing the Mother of God seems unwilling to tell him; however, is whether or not he will come back from his mission alive.
Will Agent O’Donnell be successful in rescuing the Ambassador’s daughters? If so, will he return with them to see his family again? Will he be able to unravel the intrigue between the Oval Office and the Vatican? Other than their obvious psychic abilities, what makes the twins so special that their rescue consumes Washington, DC and Rome? Perhaps O’Donnell will receive a revelation that will explain it all…and if he does, it may be something he wishes he never knew.
