Read full description of the books:
Set in the 1850s in London, England, Daniel O'Thunder interweaves the voices of several narrators to tell the story of a troubled but charismatic prize-fighting evangelist who challenges none other than the Devil to a battle in the ring.
A former pugilist with a right fist known as "The Hammer of Heaven," O'Thunder disappeared for years before resurfacing as a crusading street preacher. He pursues a life in Christ, serving those in need, whether they be poor, homeless or in need of guidance. But on London's dark streets, an evil presence is wreaking havoc and throwing into peril the lives of O'Thunder's most vulnerable souls.
The novel inhabits the world of the theatre, the criminal underworld and the world of bare-knuckle prizefighting, then shifts to the wild west of North America, where O'Thunder meets his ultimate opponent in the desert of the B.C. Interior.

Read information about the authorIan Weir is an award-winning playwright, screenwriter, and novelist. His first novel, Daniel O’Thunder, was named one of the top historical novels of 2011 by Library Journal, which described it as “a debut novel both outrageously funny and bizarrely creepy.” It was a finalist for four awards: the Commonwealth Writers’ Prize for First Book, the Amazon.ca First Novel Award, the Ethel Wilson Fiction Prize, and the Canadian Authors Association Award for Fiction.
Among his extensive television credits, he was writer and executive producer of the critically acclaimed CBC gangland miniseries Dragon Boys. He was also creator and executive producer of CBC’s adventure/drama series Arctic Air, and the long-running teen series Edgemont. Along the way, he has written more than 150 episodes for nearly two dozen series, ranging from ReBoot to Flashpoint. His stage plays, which include The Idler, Bloody Business, and The Man Who Shot Chance Delaney, have been produced across Canada, and in the U.S. and England. Other credits include ten radio plays (three for the BBC and seven for the CBC) and three young adult novels. He has won two Gemini Awards, four Leos, a Writers Guild of Canada Screenwriting Award, and a Jessie.
Ian lives near Vancouver, BC, with his wife Jude and their daughter Amy. His work takes him frequently to London, which has remained his favourite city on the planet ever since he fell in love with it as a graduate student at King’s College. For his sins he has been a lifelong fan of the Toronto Maple Leafs.
