An appaloosa horse is the only eyewitness to a killing, a sack of Montana sapphires is missing, and only Heaven knows the whole truth.
In "The Man Who Fell from the Sky," some themes of "Ghost" meet "The Horse Whisperer" in this full-length, paranormal whodunnit mystery that is packed with romantic suspense, danger, dark secrets and high spiritual stakes.
Cody Bliss, angel detective, is assigned by Heaven to the mortal body of J.R. Wilder, a paroled murderer, in order to solve his own previous untimely demise and take care of unfinished business with Mariah, who is unable to move on with her life until she knows what happened to her missing husband.
Against the backdrop of a western Montana ranch near Glacier National Park, and in the company of Mariah and her tight-knit family, Cody (inside the body of J.R. Wilder) must solve the murder mystery using forensic clues and the spiritual powers of an angel. He must also yield to J.R., whose body he is using, as that tragic man falls in love with his former wife.
In The Man Who Fell from the Sky, almost every character has a deep, dark secret. And the clock is ticking. If J.R. Wilder doesn't change his lifestyle, the Angel is Death is coming for him, too, and soon! 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. To add to the danger, the dark angels try to tempt the angel detective by using Mariah.
This is a full-length novel (100,000+ words) with a cast of compelling characters, each of whom is seeking truth and redemption in their own lives. Only an angel detective can set things right and the consequences to an entire family, and the fate of a troubled horse, rest in his hands.
