The Find, in a sense, is a twisted telling of the Great Flood, and a frightening study of religion, or more importantly, the lack thereof. What if everything we had accepted as “truth” no longer existed? Could mankind endure without religion? And what if that “truth” was replaced by an unthinkable evil? The story unfolds when two archeological siblings accidentally unearth an ancient, mysterious text. When a world-renowned linguist is called in to investigate, he soon realizes that, within it’s dark and foreboding pages, lies the fate of all human kind. An unspoken covenant has been broken, and the wheels of a global extermination have been set into motion. Strange occurrences insidiously begin to present themselves, all of which are foreshadowed in it’s dark verses. Chaos and havoc soon ensue as our Holy Bible, which we learn was nothing more than an obedience manual to keep humanity in line, is reluctantly renounced and succeeded, and a sadistic inexplicable entity, a creature that has lived amongst us since the dawn of creation and is solely responsible for our existence, rears it’s ugly head. To make matters worse, it is comprised of an element we cannot live without, dihydrogen monoxide (H2O). The story is told through the eyes of a very special seven-year-old little girl by the name of Christy. Christy struggles to understand her unique powers of extra sensory perception, as she tries to convince her loved ones of the impending threats intruding on the quiet God-fearing town of Divinity. The story revolves around Christy, and an old rustic church, in which a seemingly pleasant Sunday morning mass goes horribly wrong. While Christy deals with the nightmare within the church walls, all hell breaks loose around the globe, including unprecedented weather phenomena, tsunamis, and monstrous tornadic storm systems. The two archaeological siblings are consumed by a wall of water on the coast of their humble beach condo, and thrown into a harrowing journey of life and death. Two young lovers find themselves face to face with a churning column of death, as a tornadic storm pattern ravages the great wide open, and fountains of water unleash aqueous intruders upon the quaint gated community of Hallowed Pines. Not to mention, the unlikely disappearance of a forty-five thousand ton battleship, the most terrifying shower scene since . . . well, you know, a disturbing scene in which a dog turns into a spider (sort of), and many terrifying flashbacks of Christy’s past. The Find reads like a true thriller, in the sense that it is fast paced, suspenseful, and riveting. However, it’s characters, complexity, and heart allude to just a pinch of literary fiction and science fiction. It is a heartfelt story of hope, love, and human nature in the face of utter despair, the likes of which will be compelling and controversial to believers, atheists, agnostics, nihilists, and optimists alike.
