Description

From New York Times Bestselling author Michael Lister 

Newly Revised with an Introduction by Michael Connelly 

Was it murder, accident, or suicide? A baffling case. A brilliant detective. An introduction to an insightful, sympathetic, spiritual, and utterly unique investigator. John Jordan is a cop in a clerical collar haunted by his past—a man of mercy who also thirsts for justice.

"Michael Lister may be the author of the most unique series running in mystery fiction. It crackles with tension and authenticity." Michael Connelly

The first novel in the popular, award-winning, and critically-acclaimed John Jordan mystery series.

˃˃˃ POWER IN THE BLOOD a John Jordan novel from award-winning and bestselling author Michael Lister

Witness the series Florida Weekly calls “a treasure of contemporary literature--suspenseful, provocative, and unsettling,” and bestselling author Julia Spencer-Fleming says is “one of the most ambitious and unusual crime fiction series going. See what crime fiction is capable of.”

In POWER IN THE BLOOD, ex-cop John Jordan, now a prison chaplain in the Florida Panhandle, witnesses the bloody death of Potter Correctional Institution inmate Ike Johnson. But what exactly did he witness? Murder, accident, or suicide? Jordan discovers that in the closed society of captives and captors no act goes unseen, and no one takes kindly to a cop in a collar. He soon finds his reputation, his career, and even his life are at stake.

"Another great ride with a very assured driver behind the wheel." Michael Connelly

Offering up both the sacred as well as the profane, POWER IN THE BLOOD is a thoughtful thriller and a suspenseful mystery you won’t want to miss!

"Eerie, cinematic, finely-wrought, unflinching, suspenseful, complex, and original, POWER IN THE BLOOD is a page-turner with a soul." Lisa Unger

If you love exciting, gritty, thoughtful mysteries, don't miss Michael Lister's POWER IN THE BLOOD.

˃˃˃ The John Jordan series in order: 1) POWER IN THE BLOOD, 2) BLOOD OF THE LAMB, 3) FLESH AND BLOOD, 4) THE BODY AND THE BLOOD, 5) BLOOD SACRIFICE, 6) RIVERS TO BLOOD, 7) INNOCENT BLOOD, 8) BLOOD MONEY, 9) BLOOD MOON, 10) BLOOD CRIES, 11) BLOOD OATH.

Don’t miss a single second of this brilliant, breathtaking series.

    Spell binding as everything unravels in a very orderly way in the plot. Easy reading, but not lacking in detail and brings readers mental images front and foremost to their minds while reading without even being aware of being carried along in reading. Flows well as things and story events unravel to reveal the surprise villain at the end. Grips and holds reader attention from the first chapter all the way to the end. Mr. Lister is able to get the reader to suspend their belief system from the very beginning and takes reader to the level of feeling like they were there as the real world fades away for the reader and all that is there for the reader ...is the "story" they are mentally living word by word. Very good writing by one who is obviously now a well developed author with his writing. Mr. Lister will for sure be listed among the giants of mysteries.

    I couldn't put it down. I will read more. Kept me guessing. I loved the Religious over tones. Quoting from the bible was great. We need more of that. Thank you.

    Compelling, almost impossible to put down. Very well-written. Gave a plausible perspective of life inside a prison.

    So very engaging! The flow of the story is so smooth and brings the plot to life to the reader. I love to guess "who and why" in a thriller but this was not possible in this story. The ending made me flustered because I did not see who the killer(s) was,even though the clues were right in front of me eyes the whole time. That is what's makes a great mystery thriller. "Cudos" to the author.

    Man I wish I had discovered Michael Lister sooner! What a great, great writer! I've quickly fallen in love with all his books, but the John Jordan mysteries are my favorite. POWER IN THE BLOOD is a wonderful introduction to this unique detective and extraordinary man. John is such a good guy, works so hard to do the right thing. I just love him. I was late coming to the party, but I'm here now and I'm not going anywhere. Sign me up for the full ride.
