Acclaimed for his evocative settings and gripping suspense, CBA best-selling author Athol Dickson won his third Christy Award for Lost Mission. Among the dirt-poor barrios and ultra-wealthy enclaves lining the hills of southern California, new construction unearths a long-lost Spanish mission. This discovery sets off a chain of events that presents four unrelated people with difficult choices.
Athol Dickson, Christy Award-winning author of The Cure, delivers riveting suspense. In this tantalizing gothic tale, a 15-year-old autistic savant vanishes from his Texas home without a trace. Thirteen years later, Siggy Gamble's body washes ashore on a remote island off the rocky coast of Maine. Arriving at Winter Haven to claim her brother, 24-year-old Vera is shocked to see Siggy hasn't aged at all.
With The Opposite of Art, three-time Christy Award winner Athol Dickson delivers a compelling tale of reconciliation and redemption. The discovery of a painting signed by a renowned artist - dead for 25 years - causes quite a stir when it seems to be recently completed. After the world’s foremost expert pronounces it authentic, three lives are destined to collide: a circus sketch artist longing to paint God’s face, the daughter he never knew, and the man plotting to kill them both.
