The Apocalypse Door

Tor Books

Welcome to the world of Peter Crossman, Knight Templar Extraordinare.  He’s a man with a mission…and his boss is literally out of this world. 

Despite what is known as gospel truth, the order of the Knight Templars never really went out of business.  These warriors of God still walk among us, battling evil to keep Adam’s children safe…as they have been doing for millennia.

Peter Crossman is a priest and a man of many talents, performing last rites with one hand and handling a flamethrower in the other. He walks with faith at his side and with his colleague, the dangerously sexy Sister Mary Magdalene of the Special Action Executive Branch of the Poor Clares. Peter is faced with a crisis of biblical proportions when a search for some missing UN peacekeepers goes horribly wrong.  A very unholy object is found and may open a portal to damnation. 

Fortunately, demonic magic isn’t the only source of Power in the world. And Peter’s got a direct line to the biggest guns in the universe.

Smart, funny, and sexy, The Apocalypse Door is a rollicking caper with a touch of the sacred.

I mentally gave my contact fifteen more minutes and turned my attention back to observing the degradation
