CFBA Tour: Tribulation House

This week's featured book is one I've been eagerly awaiting: Tribulation House, by Chris Well. I enjoyed his previous books (Forgiving Solomon Long and Deliver Us From Evelyn) and so far I'm not disappointed. (I haven't had a chance to finish it yet, but I'll post more about it then.) But what's it about?
IT’S NOT THE END OF THE WORLD—WHICH COULD BE A PROBLEM...

Mark Hogan has it all. The job. The family. A position on the board at church. All he’s missing is a boat. Not just any boat—a 2008 Bayliner 192.

When Reverend Daniel Glory announces that the Rapture is taking place on October 17 at 5:51am, Hogan realizes his boat–buying days are numbered. So he does what any man in his situation would do—he borrows a load of money from the mob.

Not that there’s any risk involved: After all, when the Rapture comes, Hogan will be long gone. The mob will never find him.

But when Jesus fails to come back on schedule, Mark Hogan finds the mob is in no mood to discuss the finer points of end–times theology...

Chris Well’s laugh–out–loud Christian thrillers appeal to the millions of readers who gobble up the rollicking crime fiction of Janet Evanovich and Elmore Leonard. TRIBULATION HOUSE does not disappoint!
Comic-book loving Detective Charlie Pasch is back, as is Detective Tom Griggs. And the story is once again populated with a bunch of quirky, neurotic crooks who are just trying to do their jobs.

If you like fast-paced, sharp crime fiction, give this a read.

Linda, I'm with you. Sometimes I like these things - I'm a sucker for cute animal pictures - but I always ignore the chain-mail stuff, especially if the letter implies I don't love Jesus and/or my friend if I don't forward. I trust both the Lord and my friends not to be stupid.
