We’re embarking on a thrilling journey together as we dive into the world of Stone Morgan. The prequel novella to the upcoming series, ‘The Better Angels,’ is finally here, and I can’t wait for you to start turning its pages!
The title ‘The Better Angels’ draws inspiration from a famous quote by Abraham Lincoln in his inaugural address. Here’s the quote:
“We are not enemies, but friends. We must not be enemies. Though passion may have strained, it must not break our bonds of affection. The mystic cords of memory will swell when again touched, as they surely will be, by the better angels of our nature.”
Interestingly, I stumbled upon this quote while watching the movie ‘American History X,’ and I was absolutely riveted by the outstanding performance by Edward Norton. I’m still surprised he didn’t win Best Actor that year!
But coming back to our book, the quote, in its essence, captures the heart of the Stone Morgan series.
Stone isn’t your traditional cop. In fact, he isn’t a cop at all. Everyone seems to point it out, and even Stone often quips about how he’d make a terrible cop. But we know, deep down, it was his dream. ‘The Better Angels’ offers a deep dive into what derailed that dream and set up the rest of the series, particularly the intricate dynamic between Stone and his childhood friend, Jack.
When Stone and Jack enroll in the police academy, they are brimming with the eagerness to serve and protect the city they love. But life at the academy reveals harsh realities, blurred lines between right and wrong, and they must confront their values and their choices in pursuit of truth and justice.
‘The Better Angels’ takes you on a roller-coaster ride through the gritty and unforgiving world of 1980s New York City. The best part? It’s absolutely free! I encourage you to download your copy today, and be prepared to get lost in the world of Stone Morgan.
