The Most to Gain

Welcome to another Suspenseful Seven Sentence Sunday. This excerpt is from DEFENDING GLORY, first book of the Piedmont Island Trilogy series.

The hero, Mac, abandons his faith after the ambush that ends his career at the FBI. Now, the faith of his friends may be all that can save him...



Mac reached inside his pocket for his truck key. “I need to find whoever killed Manny and I need to do it quickly. Before Sheriff Smith decides I had the most to gain from his death.”

“How can we help?” she asked.

“I’m not sure you can.”

“We’ll pray,” the pastor said.

“It’s a start,” Mac replied. But in his heart, he doubted it would be enough.
