LOCAL AUTHOR TO HOLD BOOK SIGNING AT MORRIS PLAINS FARMERS MARKET NEXT SATURDAY, JULY 26TH FROM 9:30 AM TO 1:30 PM
Come meet the author, local resident & business owner, Bill Brazzel. Get your own autographed copy of teh book: "The Seven Holy Men".
The Seventh Holy Man, a fast-paced murder mystery takes place in the Vatican. The Vatican has been overrun, and many people have been murdered by Swiss Guards in St. Peter’s Square. Attempting to understand the cause of this unbelievable event, Sean Carrol, an investigative reporter for the New York International News, undertakes the responsibility of investigating the circumstances surrounding this tragedy. With the potential destruction of the Catholic Church at hand, there must be a revival of the seven holy men to represent the Seven Spirits of God. They provide the only means of protecting the Church. In reality, even with their intervention, there is no guarantee that the church will be preserved.
