I'm always intrigued when a writer who has a good thing going suddenly jumps the rails into new territory. I appreciate the courage, or lunacy (or combination thereof), that it takes to make that leap.

Daniel Byrne, an investigator for the Vatican’s Office of the Devil’s Advocate, has examined more than 700 claims of miracles but has never found one that checks out. Then, when he’s instructed to investigate a televangelist who is making accurate predictions about future events, Daniel is faced with the seemingly unavoidable truth that the man is not a faker. Chercover makes Daniel’s journey from skepticism to acceptance powerful and moving, especially since the evangelist, Tim Trinity, is Daniel’s estranged uncle, and Daniel is very familiar with his conman past. Trinity, a long-time fraud frightened by his new and unwelcome gift, is a particularly striking character. There are villains in the story—a Las Vegas bookie who is taking a beating thanks to Trinity’s dead-on predictions of the results of sporting events and a nasty priest, a member of a shadowy organization with a serious stake in the outcome of Daniel’s investigation—but this is no ordinary thriller. Chercover challenges his readers to get their heads around some big ideas, and the novel should appeal to readers looking for action with some metaphysical meat on its bones. — David PittSee all Editorial Reviews
