VISTA, CA (ANS) -- The Breakthrough, the second book in the Precinct 11 series by bestselling author Jerry Jenkins, is awesomely nerve wracking. Sequel to The Brotherhood, this novel unfolds a new drama involving the police squad of Chicago’s Precinct 11.
After going through one of life’s greatest tragedies, the loss of his wife and young son, Chicago cop Boone Drake begins a new life with a sweet new family and renewed faith. All is rosy and God seems to be pouring out blessings when Boone suddenly finds himself again in the midst of unfathomable tragedy—worse than his previous loss.
Boone’s faith is again tested. Will he trust God—no matter what the outcome might be? Can he sit low and leave this heinous crime—a crime that is poignantly personal and tormenting—in the hands of fellow detectives?
Shaken to the core, yet unable to shake off his detective instincts, Boone is driven to help find the criminals—a trek that leads him to unimaginable arenas of terror and darkness. He finds himself caught up in the underworld of child trafficking.
The Breakthrough is a masterpiece of Christian fiction. It provides a good read, Jenkins
As Jenkins fans might expect, The Breakthrough is more than just a good read. It is a masterpiece of Christian fiction that unveils the atrocious realities surrounding child abduction and the perverted greed that drives it.
The Breakthrough comes out in September. Look for it in bookstores everywhere.
