An ancient manuscript predicts a universal apocalypse will unfold after the Son of God is seen on other worlds. The Alien Corps is formed to find Him. So far, the search has proven fruitless.
News from a far corner of the galaxy is of concern to the Corps and to Earth’s prime trading body, the Intragalactic Agency. The Agency is currently negotiating with the planet Prosperine’s Government for exclusive mining rights to the rare metal Crynidium, required to power their faster-than-light Surfboard® technology. Intelligence suggests a radical faction is plotting to overthrow the government and return the planet to the Dark Ages, while a mystic known as the Teacher is working miracles.
More is at stake than Earth’s trading supremacy. If this Teacher turns out to be the one they’ve been looking for so long, it could signal the end of all life in the galaxy.
The Corps’ Hickory Lace and her team are sent to investigate,
Mystery, adventure, psi abilities, an alien who could be the incarnation of Jesus, and a classic writing style that evokes Simak, Heinlein, and Anderson.
Available in eBook, paperback, and Audiobook format.

This book features some strong women and men who fight for an intergalactic agency. The unusual twists related to a Christian like Messiah makes for a great read. A new author for me that will be added to my favorites. His writing is very smooth and flows nicely. Very well edited.
