No More Time-Outs

A Novel

A nonstop thrill ride of soul-searing drama and pulse-pounding suspense, Thomas Slater’s latest novel takes you all the way to hell and back.

Wisdom Jones has made a deal with the Devil: his loyalty for a kidney. The Devil in question: the CEO of the biggest drug operation in Detroit, rumored to dabble in the black market for human organs. The only reason Wisdom is doing it: to save his precious mother. . . .

Momma’s dying wish is to see her dysfunctional family restored to its once proper alignment with God—and she’s making Wisdom swear he’ll try. But what good is restoring his mother’s health if his actions send her right back to death’s doorstep? The Devil is giving Wisdom a week to give his mother one last present—to make things right with his family, his faith, and his fate—through a final gift of love. . . .

This is the unforgettable story of one man’s search for salvation in the streets of the city. But the clock is ticking . . . and there are no more time-outs.

Tears filled their eyes as they watched their younger brother slip from their grasp. All hell broke loose as the current swept the young boy further and further away from shore.
