Product Description

Charlie Murphy, a syndicate crime boss, is dead. His sassy, impulsive, bold, daring, and fearless twenty-year-old adopted-by-kidnapping daughter, Baby Doll, stands by his open grave,poised, ready to run. If Maurits, Charlie's bodyguard and heir to the Justice position, discovers the role she played in Charlie's death, she will pay the ultimate price. A few yards away, a freezing man huddles in a ball on a freshly filled-in grave. He doesn't seem to be mourning. He seems to be helpless. Hopeless. Waiting. Foolish.

He is a Drifter, waiting for a new tether-a person who will see him when no one else can. And he will stay with that person for an unknown period of time. For unknown reasons. He drifts through life invisible to all but one. Heaven and hell are unattainable for him. There is pain. Sometimes lots of pain. But there is no death, even when he wishes it would come. This time, he becomes tethered to Baby Doll, who is determined to finish what she started and will do anything to accomplish it. In a world where loyalties and betrayals are both rewarded with death, each pawn in this deadly game must stay one step ahead of the rest, or they will find themselves six feet under-next to Charlie Murphy.

Publisher's Weekly

Christian allegory, meet DC Comics. Hooray for this imaginative novel from an evangelical Christian publisher that is over the edge and most definitely outside the box. Rogers (Unpretty ) offers a noirish, Sin City –style tale of a “drifter,” an angelic-type being who becomes “tethered” to a human, the only person who can see him. A drifter called Boy becomes tethered to a young woman known as Baby Doll as she attends the funeral of her stepfather, Charlie Murphy, an organized crime boss whose death triggers an underworld struggle for power. Baby Doll and Boy have backstories, naturally, slowly revealed as their relationship develops. Throw in some Latin (Baby Doll is a college student) and epigraphs from a fictitious classical philosopher named Solace the Lesser; the result is a dark, engrossing, cinematic story.
