"The assignment was simple. Accompany the Roman soldiers and traitor, identify the blasphemer, detain him for trial and, undoubtedly, execution.None of the soldiers in his company had seen the desciple's hand inch into his tunic until the sword was flashing toward his head. He ducked but was not quick enough. Excruciating pain assaulted his senses as blood began to flow from the gaping wound where his left ear had been severed.Then something incredulous occurred, The man to be arrested quickly retrieved the mangled flesh that was once his ear. While the soldiers stood frozen, the man reached toward him and then ...well, the pain was no more and the blood stopped flowing.Was it a dream? No one wanted to acknowledge it ever happened. In fact Caiphus commanded that his account never be revealed at risk of death. But, Malchus' life will never be the same and his story will be told."

About the author (2002)

W. G. Griffiths lives on Long Island, New York, and is the multi award winning author of both fiction and non-fiction books including: Malchus, Driven, Takedown, Stingers, and Talons. Griffiths believes the reader should live the story so research from the internet alone just won't do. First hand experience is essential for proper description. If his character has to sky dive then so does the writer. If his character has to travel through the neighborhood sewers then so does the writer. Research has brought him to the deserts of the Middle East,the bush of Africa, the tundra of the Arctic and even the U. S. military confines of germ warfare at USAMRIID in Fort Detrick. Griffiths has also appeared on television many times including The Oprah Winfrey Show and speaks on writing stories at both grade schools and universities.
