Titles By A. Keith Carreiro
When the funeral shroud is cast over her, his father names his son Pall. It will soon become a name that strikes a shiver of fear into the hearts of those who hear it in combat.
A lone survivor on a battlefield many years later, Pall dazedly recovers from the wounds of war. Despite the dead cast about him, everything he looks upon is unfamiliar to him. Wandering away from this scene of carnage, he encounters John Savage, a giant of a man who puts Pall within the sight of Savage’s seven-foot, nocked longbow.
What ensues from this deadly encounter is an elusive journey for truth. Yet, while it is haunted by a ravening demon that is out to destroy Pall and John, the vision and prayers of a startlingly beautiful young woman protect them from afar.
This poem is a tribute to my parent’s generation. It pays homage to those who fought for the Allies and to those who contributed to the Allies’ war effort against the Axis powers. While it is about Adolf Eichmann, it also refers to the evil that existed in the world, especially the horror unleashed by Nazi Germany, and the hell that Hitler and his ilk waged against humanity. The poem reveals a critical raison d'être of the war. It touches upon the importance of and the sacrifices made by the Greatest Generation in defeating this dreadful scourge of genocide, and its ability to vanquish such insufferable barbarity.
The perspective of the poem is from a fictitious Mossad agent who takes part in capturing Eichmann on 11 May 1960 in San Fernando, a suburb of Buenos Aires, Argentina.
It is ironic that the face of evil seems often clothed in plain sight. Send Down the Master in Person: Reflections on Adolf Eichmann is dedicated to all those who suffer from such wicked bigotry, hatred, and intolerance.
Even though loss ekes a toll upon his life, he summons the strength and courage to continue his quest for meaning. He learns that the role he must play by determining who he is forms an integral part of the destiny of everyone around him. His journey inevitably takes him to the port city of Seascale where he soon discovers that the realm of West Fundlund is also imperiled and under attack by the renegade priest Kosem Mungadai, a thaumaturge of the 13th level in the occult arts.
Evil unleashed. Goodness embattled. A spellbinding story erupts onto the pages of the concluding novel of the Penitent trilogy.
Will Evangel's prayer of protection still surround and preserve Pall from wickedness? Are courage, the strength of arms, and the blessings of love capable of enduring and overcoming the corrupting power of malign forces seeking the utter ruin of his world?
Set in the past, cast in the future, comes a cautionary tale of humanity's presence in the universe.
