Recently published thriller, The 13th Apostle by Rhode Island author Raina Smith is “intense,” “thought-provoking” and “a stay up all night thriller.” This first book by Ms. Smith is causing quite a stir in the author’s home state.
The discovery of an ancient scroll written over two thousand years ago by a man believed by a select few to have been a mysterious thirteenth apostle of Christ leads to the discovery of disturbing prophecies of the imminence of the end of days. Fr. Joseph, the novel’s enigmatic main character, embarks on a worldwide quest to save the soul of mankind.
The 13th Apostle begs readers to consider whether mankind is inherently good or evil and delves into the theme of innocence as a protection against satanic evil.
A graduate of Rhode Island College, Raina Smith spent most of her professional career working in broadcasting as a television news reporter and radio talk show co-host and executive producer, honing her research, writing and storytelling skills. She is currently writing the sequel to The 13th Apostle.
