The Lost Priest

Once again, in his longest novel thus far, The Lost Priest, Karl Boyd works his magic and paints vivid pictures with words to bring a diversified cast of characters to life.

Set in Texas, Bermuda, and Brazil, this two part masterpiece, (The Lost Soul and The Lost Spirit), introduces you to:

Jocquin “Jock” Becker, who, while mourning the death of his young wife, Lori, becomes the resident drunkard of Bermuda and a lost soul.

Lorna Hayden, a nurse from Peoria, Illinois who is an angel of mercy to Jock just when he needed one the most.

Tom Fitch, a Catholic priest who suffers a disappointing series of events that try his soul and cause him to question his spiritual calling.

Tim Fitch, (twin brother to Tom), a contactor from Fort Worth, Texas, finds love in a strange place while rescuing Tom from the clutches of an insane medicine man in the steamy jungles of Brazil.

Kate Fitch, (Tim’s estranged sixteen-year-old daughter), and Cheryl, (Tim’s conniving ex-wife), who has continued to make Tim’s life a living hell from the day they met and well after they divorced.

Catherine Bishop, (“Sister Kate”), she really isn’t a nun, but is a school teacher from Brazil who changes Tim’s life in many ways.

Jose Hernandez, a retired Brazilian Army Major and helicopter pilot who assists in rescuing Tom, and then makes Tim an offer he can’t refuse.

Frank Moses, an explosive expert and accidental murderer who attempts to make amends for his past sins by helping a lost priest.

And, last, but definitely not least - a man-eating great white shark that affects all of the above.

Originally the first novel Karl Boyd ever wrote, The Lost Priest has taken him eight years to perfect. We believe the finished product is worth the wait. You will too. Enjoy!
