Heed the Apocalypse: A Joe McGrath and Sam Rucker Detective Novel (Paperback)
Heed the Apocalypse pushes the boundaries of reality to tell a gripping story of murder, committed and thwarted, as it marches with Martin Luther King Jr. and the 1963 protesters in Birmingham, Alabama, toward a startling conclusion. What if the events at the Sixteenth Street Baptist Church in Birmingham, Alabama, in the early morning hours of September 15, 1963, had turned out differently?
"Waights Taylor has saved the best for last. Heed the Apocalypse is as timely as Black Lives Matter. Plus it's fun to read...and a treat for those of us whose memories are fading. I wish I'd written it."--Jonah Raskin. Author of Dark Land, Dark Mirror
"You will not put Heed the Apocalypse down. When you finish you will be shaken. You will reflect on the courage and faith of the men, women, and children who risked everything for justice, and the refusal of those in power to surrender their privileges."--Brien Farrell. Attorney, educator, and social activist
"Waights Taylor has written a novel that helps the reader move closer to how it feels to have been an American in 1963 Birmingham, Alabama. Taylor's book informs the soul."--Brian Lloyd. Physicist, cellist, and humanist
"Waights Taylor has moved Joe and Sam into a new decade. He involves us...in a mystery that's action-packed from the first page and as intriguing as the human drama that fueled the period. He has another winner with Heed the Apocalypse."--John Koetzner. Author, poet, and former Mendocino College Library Director
