Jude St. James, author of Iguana, spins a rich, menacing, and mind-bending tale of good and evil in this perverse and compelling character-based thriller. Provocative and absorbing, The Renascent is an intelligently crafted psychodramatic work of depth and emotional complexity. Jon Snow has just been paroled and is reunited with his girlfriend, the beautiful and resourceful Erica Thompsen. The scandal and felony conviction that landed him in prison have relegated forever to the past his once-stellar career as a high-profile attorney. As he reconciles himself to the challenges, his introspection and self-examination lead to discovery, and he undergoes a spiritual metamorphosis. Snow publishes his first novel, written during his sojourn in prison, and his work begins to sell. However, he finds himself on the horns of his greatest dilemma. He must either play it safe or summon the courage to risk everything in order to save a dear friend, ensnared in the underworld, from assured destruction. The tension builds palpably, and the chills accelerate, as Snow wrestles with conscience and struggles with a terrifying re-entry into the belly of the beast in this non-stop spine-tingler.
