Sometimes in life, people are given a rare gift—a gift of foresight, of premonition—a sixth sense that goes far beyond what we can feel, touch, see, or smell. In some cases, these individuals are born with their abilities; they grow up with it, nurture it, it’s a part of them and they know no difference. However, in some cases, such as with private investigator Joseph Beck, these gifts are bestowed unexpectedly—and the results are such that those gifts are misconstrued as curses.
A haunting memory of childhood tragedy plagues Joe’s sleep, and with every waking moment, his curse, his ability to see into the spirit realm, threatens to rear its ugly head.
To compound his mental anguish, Joe finds himself as the target of a serial killer with a personal vendetta. Now, forced to face more than just his own internal demons, Joe sets out on an investigation with the local police to find the serial killer before everything Joe loves is destroyed.
Forced to face his darkest fears, Joe confides in a local pastor to help him come to terms with his abilities as his search for the killer brings him closer and closer to his own spiritual awakening—an enlightening that helps him realize his supposed curse is, in fact, a gift from God.
Average Joe, a thrilling roller coaster ride of suspense, is the debut novel by Christopher J. Thomasson. Played out in the mid-sized city of Roseland, Texas, Average Joe delivers colorful characters, a twisting turning plot, and a breathtaking ending that will leave readers wanting more.
