Description

This is a contemporary psychological thriller about dark obsessions, and the fathers who pass them to their sons. Rife with international glamour, romance and intrigue, the story captures four patriarchal families in a generational conflict where the pursuit of global power at any price makes them the unwitting pawns of a hidden psychotic mastermind. Here is a contest to the death between two men, both driven by obsessive love: one for a woman; one, for power. One man is scarred by fire; one, by insanity. From the banks of the Potomac River to the cliffs above the Baltic Sea, these men fight each other with such ferocity that one endangers the woman he adores, and the other betrays the country he has sworn to protect. Edward Morningstar is the child of a cruel father, captivated by his Oedipal yearnings for his mentally fragile mother, who rises above his tortured beginnings to become a high-ranking Pentagon official. He dreams of winning his father's respect by restoring America to her former glory in a political coup that will bring him global power. Delusional that he is the God-guided Jacob of old, Morningstar seeks men of extraordinary gifts to serve as his heirs. As Joseph, the favorite of his twelve "sons," he chooses Martin Henderson, a wealthy insurance magnate and Latvian Freedom Fighter. Mirroring the tragedy of the murdered, the reader will struggle to discern the fine line between victim and predator. The Sons Of Jacob is the first book in a series of twelve edge-of-the-seat novels.

Author Biography

Dr. Jill Vosler is a family physician whose medical studies at Ohio University took her abroad to the University of Edinburgh in Scotland and on to extensive travel throughout the UK and Europe, allowing her to flavor her novels with people and places far different from her native Ohio. Consulting with her father, who was her partner in medical practice and the county coroner, inspired many of the macabre elements prevalent in her writing. A keen interest in politics, a passion for music, and a love of sports have called Dr. Vosler to sit on the boards of numerous charities and organizations, and to delight in traveling the world with her husband and their son and daughter.
