In Heaven, Cody Bliss becomes the first angel detective, assigned to a unique case: solving his own murder and helping his widow, Mariah, move on with her life. To help him accomplish his mission, Heaven places him inside the body of J.R. Wilder, a paroled murderer trying to leave his past behind while creating a better future.
The clock is ticking. If J.R. Wilder doesn't change his lifestyle, the Angel of Death is coming for him. Not only that, his former cellmate shows up with a proposition that could be his undoing. That man has a secret that J.R. desperately wants to know, a missing piece of his own life puzzle that has haunted him for years. Adding to the danger, the dark angels try to tempt the angel detective within J.R. by using Mariah.
Against the backdrop of a western Montana ranch near Glacier National Park, and in the company of Mariah and her tight-knit family, Cody must solve his murder mystery using forensic clues and his angelic spiritual power. He must also yield to J.R.’s spirit, whose body he is using, as J.R. falls in love with Cody’s widow.
This full-length novel’s compelling characters are all seeking truth and redemption. Only an angel detective can set things right, and the consequences for an entire family rest in his heavenly hands.
