A fast-paced detective adventure with a touch of romance. |
Just when the love life of Iowa private detective Mike Marcus crumbles, a golden angel enters his life. The angel, it turns out, is Annie Ireland, a nomadic cult sister of the Temple of Atonement who has a dubious and dangerous ministry. Like the stray dogs that soft-hearted Mike feeds every morning, he takes Annie under his wing. But hiding her from her cult and a serial killer proves to be the detective's greatest challenge. Annie's abduction back into the temple takes Mike 400 miles to his native Indiana where he pursues a kidnapper, a killer, and a self-appointed messiah named Elijah Ben Yahweh. En route, he encounters the demons and ghosts of his past.
