At Apalachicola’s Downtown Books, from 1 until 3 p.m. this Saturday, Oct, 20., Wewahitchka author Michael Lister will be signing and reading from his newly released John Jordan mystery, “Blood Sacrifice.”


“Blood Sacrifice” is the fifth entry in Lister’s popular and acclaimed mystery series featuring ex-cop turned prison chaplain John Jordan.

Publisher's Weekly said of “Blood Sacrifice,” “Lister's strong fifth book featuring cop-turned-prison-chaplain John Jordan takes Jordan to the small Florida Panhandle town of Bridgeport, to undergo counseling at St. Ann's Abbey. Well-handled plot twists complement one of today's more psychologically complex religious detectives.”

Following a particularly brutal and costly case, Jordan goes to a secluded retreat center and encounters one of the most bewildering and haunting cases of his career - the suspicious death of a young woman undergoing an exorcism.

A provocative thriller, “Blood Sacrifice,” is also an exploration into unseen realms of darkness and light, especially those of Jordan’s conflicted heart. Confronting the irrational, superstitious, and greedy, “Blood Sacrifice” delves into the rise of American exorcisms following their explosion in popular culture, and mourns the loss of Florida’s final corner of unspoiled beauty. “Blood Sacrifice” is an exciting entry into what bestseller Michael Connelly calls one of the most unique series in contemporary crime fiction.

Lister will also be signing his other books including “Meaning Every Moment,” “The Big Goodbye,” and “Burnt Offerings.”
