    This is a very amateurish book, peopled by shallow characters and ridiculous events. The "hero," a pastor having the most puerile and adolescent crisis of faith ever, is much more like a frat boy than a minister. Many beers frequently are his answer to everything. At the same time, he is annoyingly sanctimonious about others' failings. Possibly the mosr entertaining part of this book is when this character attempts to explain why he no.longer believes in god with the kind of arguments an afolescent posits. For someone to go through seminary and suddenly be wracked by doubt by historical discrepancies in the bible is just hilarious. Why on earth would you not raise that objection much earlier - are we to believe this only jusr occurred to someone who had studied the texts for years?

    The protagonist also fancies himself an amateur detective, so this book is rife with all the nonsense of poorly done books of this type - refusing to make elementary and obvious connectons, giving the character police access that would never be granted in reality, and, most egregious and annoying, deliberately withholding information from the real detectives. The latter is never acceptable unless that information woukd seem to implicate the protagonist, but in this book there appears to be no reason to do that that is not just a transparent plot device.

    A really terrible book. Fortunately, it was cheap.
