Someone murdered Amanda Harris. That's the conclusion of her sister, Joan, when she travels to the denominational headquarters of the Apostolic Community Church and learns the details of Amanda's death. Officials claim Amanda, who had been the chief financial officer, committed suicide. Joan suspects her sister was murdered by none other than Horace Ray Brown, the ruling bishop of the denomination. Joan's desperate search for the truth uncovers an international conspiracy that spans three continents and involves drug smuggling, financial fraud, and political corruption.
