Brek Cuttler has it all: a husband she loves, a daughter she adores, a successful law practice. And then one day everything she has ever known disappears. Brek finds herself standing on a deserted train platform, covered in blood. As she tries to comprehend what is happening to her, a man from her past approaches and explains that she has been chosen to join the elite team of lawyers charged with prosecuting and defending souls at the Final Judgment. As Brek struggles to find her way back to her husband and daughter, she will discover that her first client holds the shocking secret of her fate. And that every act of kindness and cruelty sets in motion things beyond our wildest imaginations.
"Plummer makes Brek's confusion palpable as bits of her life fall into place. In Shemaya, a sort of Purgatory, Brek becomes counsel for souls that are facing their Final Judgment. She is able to access their memories by personally experiencing their lives. Plummer's performance brings a credible voice to each of the souls she inhabits, and, as Brek discovers answers to her own mystery, Plummer deftly handles the many lengthy deliberations regarding justice and forgiveness." - AudioFile Magazine
Starred Review. "...deftly unveils each new character and cleverly balances the positive and negative aspects of their lives. Building upon the memories of multiple generations, Kimmel has written a stirring spiritual thriller." - Library Review
Starred Review. "In his first novel, Kimmel has created a thrilling and fantastic world, a heady combination of the movie What Dreams May Come, John Grisham's best work, and Dante's Divine Comedy. Sometimes dreamily lyrical and sometimes harshly realistic, Kimmel's authorial voice is undeniably compelling. Raw, tender, and intelligent, The Trial of Fallen Angels is a fascinating glimpse into the judgment of lost souls and recovered memories." - Booklist
"Kimmel pays readers a supreme compliment here by inviting them to take seriously the theological question of the Last Judgment... An intriguing, intricate, and metaphysical novel - not your typical fare." - Kirkus Reviews
"In a world seething with anger in search of so-called justice, James Kimmel, Jr., spins a heartbreaking story that delivers a rebuke with courage, intelligence, and elegant prose." - Bryan Gruley, author of The Skeleton Box
