Orange County PI Al Hasp has just been told that his partner Norm Carpenter is forsaking their business, having converted to being a born-again Christian. He doesn't feel his work as an investigator would mesh with his new thinking. Al accepts a case from a televangelist, hoping Norm will work through his doubts by helping with the investigation.

Author Jon Breen's father, grandfather and great-grandfather were Presbyterian ministers. With this background, Breen has written some very good thought-provoking dialogues between his characters. Breen is no neophyte to the writing world, having won numerous prestigious awards for his seven novels and over one hundred short stories as well as several reference books. A busy man.

But not too busy to produce an intriguing plot with characters you might want to bump off yourself if they are not already done away with in the course of the story. Said story moves along at a quick pace with enough action to satisfy. The backstage scenes of the televangelist's world are debunked - making one realize that underneath, we are all just human beings. A good book, well worth the read.
