Deacons Promise is an action thriller set in South Africa. In the midst of his own crisis of faith, Deacon Adelius receives a letter from a murdered friend, pleading with him to go to South Africa to rescue his children, whose lives are in danger from international drug smugglers led by a villain who is clever, ruthless, and beautiful. What his friend asks from the grave, Deacon must grant. To honor his dying friends request, he will have to rely on fellow members of a secret society of Gabrians, of close friends, of a retired colonel of the South African police, and of a unique trio of honorary uncles. Deacon becomes a hunter and hunted, as he weaves his way from Cape Town to Zimbabwe in a trail of violence in which he must call upon all his Chicago street smarts and previous military experience to survive and accomplish his mission.
