The Christ Box, an international mystery thriller by M. Rutledge McCall (no screen adaptation available at this time)…

“Intriguing, provocative, unpredictable. …‘Da Vinci Code’-meets-‘Raiders of the Lost Ark’ … unique layering of richly-conceived characters … unforeseeable plot twists and turns, this riveting journey progresses from mystery and drama to thriller and adventure. …a tough, iconic protagonist … a world filled with dark and powerful, deadly and even fun antagonists. McCall has written one big, surprising splash of a debut novel…” – Kenneth Ulmer, Ph.D., Author; past-President, King’s University, Los Angeles; Adjunct, Magdalene College, Oxford University, UK

“A wild romp… begins on low boil, then takes off like a rocket ship. …a refreshingly unique storyline that cleverly overlays the religious with a brush of secular reality. …A word of advice to McCall: sequel!”
– Shane Baéz, President, CAM Artistic Management, Los Angeles

Clean Break, a timely political thriller that feels uncomfortably real in light of the dangerously divisive politics of America today (no screen adaptation available at this time)…

Great book! Well written.”
James Elroy, FBI Special Agent (retired; investigator of some of the most infamous cases of the 20th and 21st centuries)

“Feels like ‘Homeland’-meets-‘Yellowstone’… a political scenario that seems frighteningly real. …draws you in and keeps you transfixed. …McCall (who wrote the book from Elmburg’s original story idea) paints rich, compelling word pictures. …a maddening cliffhanger.”
– Shane Baéz, President, CAM Artistic Management, Los Angeles

The 20th Anniversary Edition of McCall’s critically acclaimed first book, Slipping Into Darkness: A True Story From The American Ghetto (screen adaptation available, also written by McCall)…

“…‘dirty realism’ [takes] the readers to gritty places and slices of life… described unflinchingly… with a rich but clean writing style. …unanticipated personal descent into darkness. …any reader would be amazed at what [McCall was] able to accomplish without getting killed… took some guts and naïveté…”
