Mr. Inside - The Lost & Found International Series
Author: L. Frank James
Publisher: The Salt Works
Length: 280 pages
ISBN-10: 1934080012

According the publisher, Mr. Inside is "a metaphor, pointing to that bitter place in our hearts where we live in fear and anger, holding the sovereign God responsible for life's unjust events. The author demonstrates that the root of anxiety and the quest for control actually center around ones anger toward God ultimately being in charge. Mr. Inside is a fictional, fast-paced suspense documentary of how one man, through circumstances beyond his control, comes face-to-face with his interior enemy."

The storyline is that in 1947, brothers Gustov and Andy Miller witness a traumatic event involving their missionary parents. The young boys return to America, drift apart, and each enters adulthood carrying the memories and scars of that fateful event. Gustov has established his own company called Lost & Found International. He runs his company with only two employees, his assistant, a lovely Christian woman, Miss Beatrix Peeters, and James Morrison, his "Mr. Outside," who finds himself in life-threatening situations while searching for lost or stolen artifacts, under the remote direction of Dr. Miller who keeps himself tightly secluded inside his mansion. Suddenly, uninvited guests violate Gus' control center, demanding that a certain valuable, ancient parchment be surrendered. This book will have the reader spellbound.

The action-packed story-line includes Gustov and Jim being hounded by scoundrels--beaten, and thrown off a moving passenger train, all while risking death in their quest to solve the mystery. The invisible hand of God is seen throughout the story.

The author's first book An Open Grave was the 2006 winner to USA Book News Religious Fiction category. Tragically, the author was killed in an auto accident just before the book was published.

Mr. Inside is a perfect story for a cold winter night.
