Through the Flames: The Kids Risk Their Lives

He is the police man that helped the Young Tribulation Force catch LeRoy Banks, Uncle André's murderer.

Murder in the Holy Place: Carpathia's Deadly Deception

Tom reappears in this book. He has now become a Global Community Peacekeeper, and seemed so reluctant to Jesus Christ. His partner, Cal Trachsel, wanted to make sure Tom was okay, and that he would be beheaded if he doesn't take the mark. However, Tom lied to him because he didn't want to lose his life. After going back inside, he reveals to the Young Trib Force that Cal has taken the mark of Carpathia on his hand.

Then, Tom and everyone from his house try to get away from the G.C. He tells them to get down as another Peacekeeper looks inside the window in his car. Tom then raced ahead, north to the Wisconsin border, and they all get into a van. Tom prays loudly to God, and receives the seal of God. Mark Eisman drives the van east, and Tom Fogarty finally becomes a believer.

The Road to War: Facing the Guillotine

Mark Eisman warns Tom and the other believers in Avery, Wisconsin, about the Global Community and that they were headed to the hideout, being led by Kruno Fulcire.

Triumphant Return: The New Jerusalem

Tom survived to the Glorious Appearing. Conrad Graham saw Tom and Josey fleeing to safety with their adopted son, Ryan Victor Fogarty, to avoid a meteor from the seventh bowl judgment. Enoch said that the believers were protected from this judgment in any case.
