SUSQUEHANNA COUNTY PHYSICIAN-AUTHOR’S PSYCHOLOGICAL THRILLER EARNING FIVE-STAR REVIEWS Award-winning physician-author Bernard Leo Remakus’ latest publication is a psychological thriller, titled “The Paraclete.” The novel’s main character is Father Paul Thielemans, a renowned Catholic theologian. Several days after Thielemans meets a parish priest and 13-year-old altar boy at a church in San Diego, the altar boy dresses in the vestments he wears while serving Mass and jumps to his death from the top of the Coronado Bridge. When Thielemans learns about the su***de and discovers the boy killed himself to avoid any further sexual abuse by his parish priest, the theologian blames himself for not having recognized their pedophilic relationship. Distraught, Thielemans seeks the advice of an expert on pe******ia, an elderly priest who has spent his entire life working as a paraclete, or advocate of impaired priests. Aided by a better understanding of sexual predators in the priesthood and the accidental discovery of a naturally-occurring seed that contains a poison more lethal than ricin, the theologian returns to San Diego and visits the parish priest. Thielemans’ visit sets off a veritable epidemic of unexplained deaths among pedophilic priests in America. Discovering a pattern to the unexpected deaths and suspecting the theologian is a serial killer, a veteran FBI special agent, whose husband was sexually abused by a priest as a child, finds herself in the middle of a moral dilemma. Watching from the sideline is a beautiful nun who is having a love affair with the theologian. To date, The Paraclete has received multiple five-star reviews: ★★★★★ “In his latest, most powerful and timely book, The Paraclete, Bernard Leo Remakus completely captures, transports and educates the reader both psychologically and globally into the Catholic Church's leadership and history. Masterfully written, this is Dr. Remakus’ greatest novel, EVER! It is a true masterpiece.” Julie Davey, Professor Emeritus of Journalism at Fullerton College and Author ★★★★★ “The Paraclete by Bernard Leo Remakus is a chilling, engrossing psychological thriller that won't let you go once you start reading. The writing is deliberate, convincing, and quite an immersive read, with a few surprises thrown in. The treatment of the provocative subject matter is scathing without being exploitative or maudlin. Fans of Primal Fear, Doubt, and Spotlight will love this unnerving but satisfying page-burner.” Author Tammy Ruggles ★★★★★ “The Paraclete by Bernard Leo Remakus is a spellbinding psychological thriller with strong and well-developed religious themes. Remakus is a gifted storyteller and the author has the gift of creating characters that instantly capture the sympathy of readers, putting them in dilemmas that make the story even more captivating. This novel is a page-turner.” Author Romauld Dzemo ★★★★★ “The Paraclete is a fascinating book that focuses on the Catholic Church. While Bernard Leo Remakus wrote this as fiction, many of the topics addressed by the priests apply to realistic views on Catholicism. I especially liked Thielemans' character development. The book deserves a 5-star rating with the suspense, colorful cast of characters, and thought-provoking dialogue.” Stephanie Chapman for Readers' Favorite ★★★★★ The Paraclete vigorously attacks issues of child abuse within the confines of the Catholic Church, and Bernard Leo Remakus positions it as a crime thriller. At the heart of the story is Father Paul Thielemans, a traveling theologian and author giving lectures and meetings to Catholic institutions. Remakus ingeniously injects a subplot where Thielemans meets a young nun named Michelle, and their moments give you incremental ideas until you reach the resolution. It is a timely work of fiction that is more about the crime-solving mystery than being a moral statement.” Vincent Dublado for Readers' Favorite ★★★★★ “The Paraclete by Bernard Leo Remakus is a contemporary Christian thriller centered around the Catholic church and its many current woes. I applaud Bernard Leo Remakus for writing this book. There is a lot to think about as several Catholic doctrines are brought to light and exposed as not only manmade but very damaging. The author does a good job of showing the good things the church has done too. I enjoyed this book.” Maureen Dangarembizi for Readers' Favorite The Paraclete is Dr. Remakus’ fifth novel. His medical thriller, The Lame Duck, which takes place in Scranton and Susquehanna County, won a bronze medal in the 2019 Readers’ Favorite International Book Awards. His medical novel, Keystone, takes place in Wilkes-Barre and inside a Philadelphia medical school. Dr. Remakus has also published three medical books and one screenplay, and has authored over 200 articles that have been published in medical journals, including the New England Journal of Medicine, the Journal of the American Medical Association, and Medical Economics. From 1999 to 2012, he was the featured columnist and member of the editorial advisory board of Internal Medicine World Report. His column in that publication was one of the longest-running and most widely-read physician-written columns in America. The Paraclete is now available as a hardcover, paperback, and ebook on the amazon.com and Barnes and Noble websites: https://www.amazon.com/Paraclete-Bernard-Leo-Remakus/dp/B08XX7Q9GX/ref=sr_1_1?keywords=remakus&qid=1615449198&s=books&sr=1-1.
