About the Book

Church by novelist Joseph W. Michels follows William Church, ex-FBI agent turned freelance recovery specialist, as he is called from his comfortable life in San Francisco to pursue ruthless art thieves who steal priceless masters from a private residence, thus sparking an adventure of cat and mouse across Europe, with deadly results. Church is tested to his limits and finds his considerable talents pushed to the edge as the body count rises and the paintings grow more distant. This book is author Michels’ first installment in the ongoing adventures of William Church. Written in the best tradition of hard-boiled heist fiction, Church will please thriller and crime-adventure aficionados, and anyone who just loves a good story well told. This is the birth of a new anti-hero in a novel that moves fast and furious, while being populated with rich and multi-dimensional characters.
