LAST THINGS SERIES
Three Last Things by Corinna Turner
A tense “psychologically-compelling” spiritual thriller from the Carnegie Medal Nominated author of the award-winning I AM MARGARET series.
AN UNREPENTANT KILLER. AN EXECUTION FROM HELL. THE STAKES? ETERNAL LIFE.
“Love doesn’t exist. And Fr. Jacob is right about one thing. Without it, life is utterly meaningless.”
Carl Jarrold, a convicted assassin, believes that all human relationships turn on what one human being wants from another: that there is no such thing as love and thus no meaning to life. Prison chaplain Fr. Jacob, the closest thing he has to a friend, has struggled for three long years to convince Carl how wrong he is—to no avail. But the day of execution has finally arrived, and nothing goes quite as Carl expects. Soon it’s shaping up to be the strangest day he has ever had. But will it prove the worst day of his life...or the best?
Described as “beautiful,” “fantastically good,” and “one of the most moving stories I have ever read,” this is a race against time for the highest possible stakes.
A Changing of the Guard
A DYING PRIEST. A BOTCHED EXECUTION. A YOUNG MAN ON THE BRINK.
Tomas Flores hates serving on the prison’s Death Squad—and now he may be about to lose his job thanks to his actions during Carl Jarrold’s hellish execution. Desperate and conflicted, where can he turn?
Father Jacob Thompson has spent decades opening his heart to convicted murderers—only to watch them die. Now his last black sheep is safely gathered in and he’s ready to rest—but will the Lord let him?
If you loved the tense, “psychologically-compelling,” spiritual thriller Three Last Things: or, the Hounding of Carl Jarrold, Soulless Assassin, then this heart-wrenching, emotionally-taut sequel is for you.
