Reverend Oxford Christie visits a patient in a strange nursing home, one of a number owned and operated by The Group, Inc. Its profit far exceeds that of the typical nursing home, and patients seem to disappear. The state's system of nursing home inspections is deeply flawed to the extent that severe and continued abuse easily goes unchecked. The Group, Inc. becomes aware of Christie's nosing around and orders are given to do whatever is necessary to stop his snooping. Ox, aware that he is being watched, is torn between the possible danger to his wife and children and the suspicion that the incredible abuse of helpless patients is even worse than what's been observed.

Having read The Hidden Congregation, and knowing this was the sequel, I was excited to slip through the rabbit hole and back into this unique reverend’s life. Not only is he a great example of a spiritual leader, but an excellent detective (albeit one who stumbles upon situations). Delamare does an outstanding job of grabbing your attention, keeping it and educating you in the process. Nursing home abuse is rampant, and there are human body diamonds. I looked it up. Unreal. Just bought The CareTakers and can’t wait to dive into it. More! More! — CJ Loiacono
