This is a strongly emotional, fast-paced crime thriller / psychological suspense novel. On one side, Randall B Cregg's father has always hoped his son would feel a calling to take over the church someday.
After a particularly troubling traumatic experience, the boy does feel a calling, but it is not the one his father hoped for. And Randall's mother is a veritable fount of Christian charity, even in her traditionally submissive role in the family.
On the other side is Detective Sean McManus. He is a matter-of-fact gumshoe who just wants to work his cases and make ends meet. But moonlighting isn't always what it's cracked up to be. Especially when you cross wires with a man like Big Frankie Giuliatti.
Smack in the middle is the clearing. Beautiful. Remote. A perfect setting for magic and romance and the plucking of young, ripe, forbidden fruit. And a perfect setting for a graveyard.
