A Jealous God - Gripping Mystery About Motherís Search for Answers to Infant Death


HOUSTON - In Dee Wilburís provocative thriller, A Jealous God, high-powered attorney and native of Richmond, Texas, Emma recovers from the death of her deformed newborn by trading grief for revenge. As she searches for the cause of her tragedy, she finds a searing mystery that will make the reader question everything they ever thought they knew about free will.

In the Second Commandment, God promises to repay the children for the sins of the father. When one generation sins, does a jealous God really demand that subsequent generations pay for the crimes? How much of our lives is really under our control? When Emma discovers her unborn child is deformed, she goes on the attack, tracking down other mothers with similar tragedies. She suspects a local chemical plant is responsible for leaking toxins, but will the plantís lawyer, Jon, help her -- especially when the plant is his only major client and his ticket to marrying Sandy, the woman he loves? The truth these two lawyers discover is far more sinister than anything they could conceive.

Wilbur writes with page-turning intensity, keeping the reader guessing until the last shocking scenes. Seamlessly meshing together the details of modern fertility technology with the intricacies of small-town Texas relationships, A Jealous God asks whether we have the power to right the wrongs of those who came before us.

Ellen Tanner Marsh, New York Times best selling author says, ďA Jealous God...dishes up a fast-paced mix of mystery and intrigue, while the characters deftly portray the nuances of loyalty, honesty, and avarice that make for great reading. At the same time, the author gives stunning life to the urgency of the Second of the Ten Commandments, which warns us that the sins of the fathers are ultimately visited up their children by the judgmental hand of a jealous God.Ē
