About the Book:Brother Half Angel is the leader of a secret new church military order, dedicated to helping Christians under attack around the world. In this book, the first in the Brother Half Angel series, he is dispatched urgently to China, where an underground seminary is under siege from fanatical sword-wielding members of a local cult who still pay homage to the bloodthirsty extremists who tried to expel all foreigners from China in the nineteenth century.

5 Favs with Martin:

Favorite city you’ve visited – Tokyo. I lived there for 17 years, and wouldn’t have stayed if I didn’t love the place. They say that when you visit Rome or Paris you feel like you’re living in the past, when you visit New York you feel like you’re living in the present and when you visit Tokyo you feel like you’re living in the future. It’s true.

Favorite food – just about anything Japanese, unless it’s still wriggling (which in Japan it occasionally is).

Favorite authors – I write thrillers and I love reading them. Raymond Chandler, who wrote “The Big Sleep” and “Farewell My Lovely” is the master. I read and re-read him, wondering how he manages to create all that atmosphere.

Favorite book you’ve read in the last three months – a Scottish friend has just left Australia (where I live) and has moved with his family back to the UK. Before he went he gave me his collection of Ian Rankin detective mysteries, and I’m reading the series now. They’re great – excellent writing, marvelous characters and a gritty, very atmospheric Edinburgh locale. 

Favorite historical person (fiction or non) - as a strong Christian I should probably answer that it is Jesus. But I have just started some intensive reading of the Old Testament, so right now my favorite historical person is that passionate man of God - and man of action - David.
