The one missing person he can’t find

is the one who matters the most. 

Private Investigator Jax Rodriguez has been searching for his brother, Diego, for twenty years. When he stumbles upon another lead, he makes an agonizing decision—he will follow this last trail until it grows cold, and then he will marry the woman he loves and abandon his quest once and for all. 

Artist Mikayla Grant is terrified of losing another person close to her, but she has to let Jax go after his brother. Given the secrecy surrounding Diego’s disappearance, clearly Jax is heading into danger. When all contact with him is abruptly cut off, can Mikayla trust that God’s promise to never leave or forsake Jax will be enough to bring him safely home, or does she need to take matters into her own hands? 

As Jax attempts to survive the dangerous streets of Caracus, Venezuela and then face the myriad of unknown threats in the El Yunque Rainforest in Puerto Rico, he is not the only one following his brother’s trail. 

A ruthless drug lord bent on revenge is using all his resources to discover the truth about what happened to Diego. If Jax can't stay one step ahead of his pursuer, then he, like his brother, could disappear and never be heard from again.

A Light in Darkness
by Sara Davison

I don’t think anyone would argue that this planet is a very dark place. In my debut novel, The Watcher, the narrator describes it this way: It is a dark planet, has been since the day the first ones of your kind made the decision to turn away from the light. I can still feel it, that unfamiliar prick of pain that shot through me with that first bite of forbidden fruit. I thought then that the light was gone forever. A shadow fell over the planet in that moment, like a heavy curtain drawn across the sky. We all felt it, that pain of separation, of ending, of innocence lost. But we were shown then, and had it powerfully reinforced for us a few thousand years later, that light is stronger than darkness.

Although different books of mine have different themes, two truths are always woven throughout the pages—that, whatever we are going through we are never alone because God is always with us, and that the light always overcomes the darkness. As John Eldredge wrote in his book, Epic, every story that resonates with us on a soul-deep level reflects the greatest story of all—God’s plan to reconcile humanity to himself through the life, death, and resurrection of his son. The elements of that story—someone fallen, broken, and in need of rescue, a hero who saves them, and the subsequent restoration of relationship—appear in one form or another in all great stories. If not, even if we are not people of faith, something about the story doesn’t sit right with us.

My hope and prayer for all of my books, including my most recent release, Forged, is that readers recognize that great story in each of my attempts to reflect it through the experiences of my characters and their relationships with God.

As believers, we know the ending of that great story. We have full confidence that, as dark as the planet it, one day it will be filled with light. All will be restored and put right. As John put it in Revelation 22:3-5 (ESV), “No longer will there be anything accursed, but the throne of God and of the Lamb will be in it, and his servants will worship him. They will see his face and his name will be on their foreheads. And night will be no more. They will need no light of lamp or sun, for the Lord God will be their light, and they will reign forever and ever.”

Still, knowing how the story will end does not mean there is no uncertainty in the midst of it. In this fallen, broken planet, we will have trouble, as Jesus promised. The uncertainty, the fear, and the waiting lend suspense to our lives here on earth, but we remain grounded and sustained by the most powerful romance of all—the love between God and those He created to be in relationship with Him.

As we live out our lives of suspense and romance, waiting for the glorious day when we will be in the presence of the one who loves us so deeply, we can find hope in reading stories that reflect our journey. Stories that remind us that while yes, we are lost and in need of a saviour, a Saviour has already come and will come again to bring us to Himself. Stories that reassure us over and over that we are deeply loved. And stories that reflect the immutable truths that the darkness that surrounds us is temporary, it has no real power over us, and one day it will be defeated forever, replaced by a glorious light that will endure for all eternity.
