Post-apocalypse world of Second Coming

Second Coming is my latest novel, and is now available on Kindle. Second Coming is a story set in the not-too-distant future where mankind teeters on the edge of its existence as the world is ravaged with ecological disaster.
Just why have I left the mystery/detective genre and chosen a post-apocalyptic story for my latest project? Some have said the writer does not choose his subjects, but rather the subject chooses the writer.

Second Coming is a story that occurred to me and would not leave me until the project was finished. I will be the first to admit I am not a devotee of the post-apocalyptic genre, but I do like them when they are done well.

According to the Holy Bible, the Second Coming is to herald Jesus Christ’s return to earth, and with Him will come the divine judgement through war, famine and earthquakes.
The Old World has passed away.      
In the New World three strangers – a scientist turned drunk, a young prostitute, and a professional killer-- are inexorably drawn together by an angel.  Their new God-given vocation is to find and protect a baby –  who may very well be the second child of God –  who is delivered into the world to save mankind and Earth. In order to carry out their mission the three strangers must overcome evil forces at work who would destroy them in order to kill the child.
    Second Coming is the story of redemption and atonement of three people acting on instinct and faith risking their lives to save a child from the clutches of an evil empire in a world gone mad. Second Coming is our world, yet somewhat alien with strange customs and filled with bizarre creatures.
