Baker & Taylor
Contract killer Toby O'Dare accepts a seraph's offer to leave his violent existence in order to save lives, and finds himself transported to thirteenth-century England and challenged to defend falsely accused Jewish citizens.

Spanish Pubs Llc
Despues de una infancia dificil, en la que Toby O´Dare sufre la perdida de su madre y sus dos hermanos pequenos, su vida queda vacia de ilusiones; ya casi no puede recordar sus aspiraciones religiosas, su amor por su instrumento favorito, ni las ganas que algun dia tuvo de salvar a su familia. Su unico empeno es su ocupacion actual: trabaja como asesino a sueldo para un hombre al que llama "The Rigth Man" y en su fuero interno suena con que los homicidios que comete pudieran tener un motivo digno. Solamente hay un refugio que le produce cierta sensacion de bienestar, un pequeno hotel llamado The Mision Inn, donde se siente capaz de rememorar los dias lejanos en los que aun tenia ilusiones y sentimientos. El dia en que su jefe le ordena cometer un asesinato en ese preciso lugar, su vida da un vuelco. Tras acabar con la vida del hombre marcado como objetivo, se le aparece su angel de la guarda y le ofrece una oportunidad unica: viajar al pasado para ayudar y hacer el bien a las personas que se le asignen. Inglaterra en el siglo XIII, es el escenario elegido. Alli habra de luchar para comenzar a salvar vidas en un pueblo judio asediado por sus vecinos.
Into his nightmarish world comes an angel to offer a chance to save lives. O'Dare, who dreamt of being a priest but instead came to embody danger and violence, seizes his chance. He's carried back through the ages to thirteenth-century England, to dark realms where accusations of ritual murder have been made against Jews, where children suddenly die or disappear.
