Overview

In 1844, a religious sect founded a small town and held its breath for the Second Coming, when the faithful would be carried to heaven. One hundred and fifty years later, they're still waiting. Then three people disappear--and some think the prophecy is finally coming true. Ex-seminarian turned sleuth Owen Keane thinks there's a more corporeal explanation, something to do with a convicted killer's parole hearing--because there's nothing very divine about a cold body in a shallow grave. Martin's Press.

Fresh from a visit to a convicted killer, seminarian-turned-shamus Owen Keane travels to Rapture, Indiana, adoptive hometown of the killer's daughter, to investigate a series of inexplicable disappearances 150 years after the town's founders prophesied the apocalyptic rapture that would carry them all off.
