FINAL CROSSING

A Novel of Suspense

Final Crossing

An Examiner.com Best Fiction Book of 2012

Rudiger doesn't kill because he wants to. He kills because he needs to.

When the sadistic Preacherman stole the last bit of Rudiger's already troubled childhood soul, Rudiger lost himself forever. As an adult, Rudiger has committed atrocities even he cannot explain and he yearns for the End of Days to release him from his pain. God has told him he must crucify The One to bring about the Final Judgment, but Rudiger is left to his own special abilities to figure out who The One is. Thus sets off Rudiger's horrifying journey across continents in hopes of bringing an end to the world, one nail at a time.

One man remembers what Rudiger is capable of. Jonas Osborne, an Army Ranger and Senatorial Chief of Staff, saw first-hand what Rudiger is capable of during a terrifying firefight in Somalia almost two decades earlier. Now Jonas himself could be a target on Rudiger's quest, and he enlists the help of a beautiful psychic criminologist to understand where Rudiger will erect his next cross. And only on the biggest international stage—a summit for Middle East peace talks—will Jonas and Rudiger meet again for one final confrontation.

Praise

"Edgy. Fascinating. Irreverent... This is a debut to pay attention to and a writer to watch. Final Crossing is a terrific, terrifying thriller that grabs you, disturbs you and doesn't let go."
   —International Bestseller M.J. Rose

"Readers will literally find themselves perched on the edges of their chairs, astonished, driven, heart-wrenched, and horrified, turning the pages so fast they might almost ignite. The term 'thriller' might have been conceived to describe Final Crossing. Please don't miss out."
   —Mallory Anne-Marie Forbes, Net Galley Reviews

"I absolutely loved this book. My only disappointment was that he left me hanging for more. I hope to see more of his books. I usually read Patterson, Koontz, King, Sandford and I can add this one on my list of must-reads!!!"
   —Barbara Brown, Net Galley Reviews

"A compelling novel with characters that readers will take to heart and never forget. Wilson is a lion in today's literary world."
