The Contract: between heaven and earth by John W. Howell  (Author), Gwen M. Plano  (Author)

AMAZON INTERNATIONAL #1 BESTSELLER and #1 NEW RELEASE

The earth is under the threat of a catastrophic political event which could result in international warfare and destroy all life on the planet. In heaven, a divine council decides that extraordinary measures are essential. They call for an intervention that involves two souls returning to earth. The chosen two sign a contract that they will work to avert the disaster. Brad Channing, a Navy SEAL, and Sarah O’Brien, a teacher, become heaven’s representatives on earth. The story follows them as they individually and then together face overwhelming obstacles and eventually end up on a strategic Air Force base in California. It is there that they discover a conspiracy to assassinate the President of the United States. The terrorists have a plan for global dominance, and they are determined to complete their mission. Although military leadership appears to have the President’s best interests at heart, it is not clear who can be trusted and who should be feared. The action is rough and tumble as Brad and Sarah try to figure out the culprits of the plot that will turn into a worldwide conflagration unless stopped. If you enjoy thrillers, this is one with enough twists and adventure to keep you riveted and guessing. If you like your thriller along with a good romance, Brad and Sarah’s initial attraction and eventual love will sustain you as they live out their heavenly and earthly desires.

Review: Celestial body snatchers and a planet on the precipice.

…A thousand years ago when I was a teenager I picked up a copy of Jack Finney’s novel, The Body Snatchers. In that book part of California (where else?) is invaded by extra-terrestrial seed-pods dispatched to earth by an alien power. The pods then proceed to replace sleeping humans with almost perfect alien replicas while the ill-fated human hosts turn to dust.

…The Contract, a new book by co-authors Gwen Plano and John Howell, also has a body-snatcher motif, but unlike Finney’s book it is limited to just two humans and the entities that inhabit their bodies are not toxic aliens. Instead, they are celestial beings (Peter and Teresa) sent by the “Elders” in heaven to head off a potential earth-ending disaster. (Our planet today should be so lucky!)

…A network of terrorists is seeking global dominance and to achieve that, they must, among other things, eliminate the U.S. President. That’s about as far as I will go in revealing the fast moving plot of this captivating and absorbing book.

…However, unlike Finney’s The Body Snatchers with its far-fetched alien seed pods that drift seemingly unimpeded through space until they land on earth, The Contract leaves you pondering the distinct possibility of divine intervention. The two unsuspecting “hosts” are Brad Channing, a Navy SEAL, and Sarah O’Brien, a teacher. Just as in Finney’s book, The Contract’s climax occurs in California–a woeful state that, as we all know, clearly needs all the help it can get, celestial or otherwise.

…The Contract deftly combines the thorny elements of a gripping thriller with the more muted ingredients of a love story. That is not an easy thing to do–especially when there are two authors mixing the literary chowder.

…However, Gwen Plano and John Howell are experienced and gifted storytellers who clearly work well together. Both of them recognize the critical elements of pacing, character development, conflict, active voice, and evocative description. You get all of that in The Contract, as well as a highly compelling story.

…I found very little to nit-pick in The Contract. The book begins with The Elders in heaven calling a meeting to discuss impending doom on earth. The celestial scenes at the beginning of the book were reminiscent of ancient Greek gods like Zeus and Aphrodite convening on Mount Olympus to cautiously and methodically choreograph the lives of mere mortals below. Nonetheless, the rousing story that unfolds back on earth moves swiftly and evocatively.

…This is a book well worth your time. And after you read it, you can sleep soundly without worrying about those pesky pods! ~Ronald E. Yates, award-winning author of the Finding Billy Battles Trilogy

…The Contract is the perfect blending between the physical and unseen world with unbreakable bonds between human and spirit. ~ Jan Sikes, award-winning author and accomplished musician

…I really enjoyed this story. It was unique, exciting, action-packed, spiritual, a love story, a lesson in what is important in life — all the things I like in one book. Very relevant book for the times we are in now. ~ D.L. Finn, award-winning author of No Fairy Tale and This Second Chance

Our Justice by John W. Howell
John Cannon Trilogy Book Three

The terrorist leader and financier Matt Jacobs has figured out a plan to eliminate the President. He is relying on John Cannon’s stature as a hero to help him carry it off. John finds himself walking the fine line of pretending to help Matt while trying to figure out a countermeasure to the plan.

The third book in the John J. Cannon Trilogy brings together two strong wills for a showdown. The question to be answered is who will feel the satisfaction that the achievement of justice delivers? John, Matt or neither?

5 Stars: Dangerous World!

For all you John Cannon followers ‘Our Justice’ (trilogy book three in the series) is finally here.

To refresh your memory, ‘My GRL’ is book one in the series. Like a lot of business men who tolls in an office setting day in and day out John J. Cannon takes a leave of absence from his firm, buys a boat and names her “My GRL”. Life was looking up until he wakes up in the hospital and finds out that he was found unconscious beside the woman who sold him the boat. If you have read this book, you know where the story goes, if not, you need to read book one to see how the purchase of this boat brings John into the dangerous world of terrorism, counter-terrorism and politics that will either bring out the best or the worst in him.

Book Two of this thriller trilogy is titled ‘His Revenge’ for a reason, but revenge my not be what John imagines. In fact, he unwittingly becomes an accomplice in a plan to attack the credibility of the US President and topple the worldwide oil industry. How will John get out of this without becoming a traitor to his country and endangering thousands of lives?

‘Our Justice’ is here, and now you must find out if justice is as sweet as revenge. Let me start with a quote from Chapter three to catch you up and whet your appetite.

…The two agents explain something about being called off the case. Ned asks them what they’re doing here, and they tell him they’re sorry for the way things turned out. We all shake hands, and they go away.

…Ned suggests we go to dinner, and we do. We have a little discussion about the agents, and I think Ned feels it is good riddance. Ned and I finish dinner, and he drops me off at my house again. He wonders if he should come inside to check the house before he leaves. I offer to buy him a beer if he’s so inclined. He smiles, “You know, a nice cold beer might be just the thing to top this day. Also, I’m going to have an officer come over here tonight.”

…I don’t say anything about the officer and just nod. We get out of the SUV and start up the driveway. I’m not sure if I see something at the corner of the house or not. “Ned, take a look at the corner of the house to the right.”

…He whispers, “Yeah, someone’s there. Get down.”

…As I move to the ground, flashes come from the dark corner. Ned grunts like someone just hit him in the stomach, and then falls to the ground and rolls over close to me. “Take my gun and start shooting.” He reaches out, and I can see his gun and also a lot of blood.

…I take the gun from his sticky hand and fire toward the corner of the house. A dull moan tells me that I’ve likely hit something other than the building. I get up and hold Ned’s gun out in front of me, as I’ve seen the police do on TV. After a quick move to my left, I run toward the corner of the house, only closer to the bushes in the front. I don’t want to be a big target while I make my approach toward the gunman. When I reach the corner, I make out an arm with a gun in the hand. Though the arm is outstretched on the ground, it could be a trap, so I step on the wrist. When I do, the hand opens, and the gun makes no sound when it slips to the ground. With the muzzle of Ned’s gun at the person’s head, I say a line I’ve heard before, “One move and you are a dead man.”

…Upon looking closer, I can say that my line was a little redundant. I haven’t seen too many dead men in my life, but this guy looks dead to me. Still wary, I pick up the guy’s gun and sprint back to Ned. When I get there, Ned is still on the ground. “Ned, can you hear me?”

… “Call 911. I need to get to a hospital.” “Should I drive you?”

… “No. No offense, but we both need to stay alive.”

…I dial 911 and speak to the dispatcher. I tell them where we are and that the chief has been shot. The dispatcher sounds upset and lets me know that EMS and a car are on the way. “Please, stay on the line, Mr. Cannon. I need you to give me some idea of Chief Tranes’ condition.”

…I assure the dispatcher that I don’t intend to hang up. I sit on the driveway and look Ned over. He seems to be bleeding a little less, which I take as a good sign. “Ned, the dispatcher wants to know about your condition.”

… “Uh, tell her I’ve been better, but it’s not too serious.” He pauses. “And, John, try to make it believable. The dispatcher is my wife, Geneen.”

… “Oh my God. I had no idea.”

… “Tell her.”

… “Mrs. Tranes? I just spoke to your husband, and he told me to tell you that he’s been better, but it’s not serious.”

… “I heard him, Mr. Cannon. Please, don’t let Ned die. He is the love of my life, and although he’s one tough son of a bitch, this is just the kind of nightmare I’ve had for years. Please, promise me you won’t let him die.”

I invite everyone to read on to get the answers that both you and John Cannon need. This action, mystery, suspense thriller rivals that of Jack Bower (lead protagonist of the Fox television series 24) and will leave you waiting for John W. Howell’s next book titled ‘The Circumstances of Childhood’ scheduled to be released mid-year 2017.
