Power in the Blood – Michael Lister

Michael Lister takes his experience as a Florida prison chaplain to infuse his protagonist, John Jordan, with a realism that draws you into his world. What you find there is a cesspool of human dregs that seems to corrupt even the most incorruptible of people.

Lister develops an uncompromising, gritty look at the prison system, the AIDS epidemic, and the struggles of a minister who feels unworthy. This first novel is one that will make you want to read the next and the next.
