New Novel, THE SPIRIT OF WANT, Examines the Ethics of Lying

New Novel, THE SPIRIT OF WANT, Examines the Ethics of Lying

Courtroom ethics, medical malpractice, religious deception, and irresistible adultery- ethical quandaries rule in the celebrated new novel by multiple award-winning author William H. Coles.

In his eighth work of published fiction, The Spirit of Want, Coles presents a provocative thriller centered around a successful female lawyer who falls in love with a TV evangelist accused of sexually molesting a child. As she struggles to uncover the truth and deal with the cruel effects of unrequited love, a dangerous world of dark secrets is revealed.

Coles is no stranger to the world of dramatic fiction. A former surgeon with a successful writing career, Coles' books and stories have won or been finalists in The Flannery O'Conner Award for Short Fiction, The SEAK Competition, the Sandhill Writers Competition and The William Faulkner-William Wisdom Creative Writing Competition.

Similar to his previous works, Coles' latest novel is inspired by true events and heavily influenced by his former career as a surgeon. Unlike with his most recent medical drama, The Surgeon's Wife, The Spirit of Want takes readers out of the surgery room and into the church, highlighting the medical negligence of a fundamentalist healer and acclaimed religious leader.

With attention to detail and a focus on building unforgettable characters, Coles weaves a gripping storyline that not only questions the ethics of its characters, but also challenges the morals of the reader.
