Knights of the Shield
Detective Luke Graham was once a highly decorated top cop. When his father, also a police detective, is gunned down in the line of duty, despair burns in Luke’s heart, turning his life and career into bitter ashes. He becomes a pariah on the force. No one wants him as a partner because they can’t trust him to have their backs and everyone knows Luke trusts no one. He’s lost all faith in his fellow police officers, himself and his God. He’s a ticking time bomb about to explode. On a case, Luke defies procedure and pursues a killer without backup, as his father did. He nearly gets killed.
Saddled with a partner he doesn’t want, and tied to a hospital bed he can’t get out of, Luke nearly gives in to his despair. But then, from a promise he made at Death’s door, a spiritual ancestor from Luke’s past appears and offers to guide him—for a price. In return, Richard, a 1000-year-old spirit knight will repay his own debts of honor. However, catching a maniacal killer is more important to Luke than helping a depressed spirit from his family line.
Can Luke discover who’s behind the Ribbon Killer’s brutal attacks before Richard’s patience runs out and he cashes in Luke’s soul?
