Jason Reads the All Saints’ Day of the Dead

Friends: I recorded myself reading the opening pages of my latest book. In these first few pages, we are introduced to Deacon Dat Nguyen, a Vietnamese clergyman in South-Louisiana on an exchange program. Dat is reflecting on his failed invocation at the Black Pot Festival earlier that day, when a disturbance in the cemetery behind the church puts him on high alert. He can’t believe what he sees–someone dressed as the Grim Reaper squared off in a fight against blond girl in a nun’s tunic. The Reaper is Butch McClaren, the abusive ex-boyfriend of the hero of the story, Constance Miller. You’ll meet Constance in the next installment–and you won’t be disappointed. Trust me.
