Thomas Slater's latest novel is a non-stop ride of entertaining drama with suspenseful plot-twists and pulse-pounding action--from unholy corruption inside a church sanctuary to the insidious figures that lurk in the shadows of the dangerous city-streets. Wisdom Jones has made a deal with the Devil. Purchase price of a kidney: his life. But this Devil isn't the malicious spirit who's the total embodiment of evil: this one's human, the CEO of the biggest drug operation ever established inside of Detroit city limits, and rumored to dabble in the black market for human organs. Though the tab may be staggering, no cost is too steep for the life of Wisdom's precious mother. Her dying wish is to see her disobedient family restored to their once proper alignment with God. She lays her hand on her only responsible son's head and makes him swear the oath. Wisdom isn't ready to honor a dying wish. What good would it do to restore his mother's health if stress from her wayward family delivered her right back to death's doorstep? The Devil gives Wisdom a week to give his mother one more present: the gift of restoring her family back to its rightful splendor. No More Time-Outs follows Wisdom Jones while he prowls the dangerous streets in pursuit of reformation. The clock is running and there're absolutely...no more time-outs!

In Show Stoppah, readers will see what happens when two women are pushed to the limits of frustration, and exactly what they're prepared to do to earn respect.
The compelling sequel to No More Time-Outs finds Wisdom Jones accepting the terms of a deadly proposition from his old enemy: a life for a life. Wisdom Jones's mother needs a kidney and the only donor is one of his old enemies, Highnoon, who offers the organ for the chance to kill Wisdom.

With only a limited time on earth, Wisdom is left with the task of saving the marriage of his only sister from the wrath of her thuggish lover. The next ones will be tricky, but somehow, Wisdom must manage to convince his baby brother to give up the crack pipe and persuade his elder brother from living a very dangerous lifestyle. But the true test will lie in convincing his television evangelist father that pimping from the pulpit can be costly; a forbidden appetite that could ultimately turn fatal. Take One for the Team leaves Wisdom Jones matching wits with deadly adversaries in an attempt to free his family from the hand of destruction and deliver them into the land of righteousness.
