About the Book

From the Ireland of St. Brendan to the baking deserts of Death Valley-- from the ancient rites of the Druata to the televangelists of modern times-- from the source of the greatest of human evils comes the tale of a demon with the most terrifying powers ever known--

A street bum finds all the water in his body turned to wine-- on a hospital AIDS ward, a young man checked at 7:00pm is found dead an hour later, his body appearing as if it had lain in the sun for three days -- a homeless woman accepts a gift of bread and fish from a stranger, only to find it multiply within her, exploding her from within--

Reverend Carrillee Maitland can find no sense or link between these bizarre deaths, and in an election year, there simply is no street crime in the city. It takes the assistance of Nick Praetorius, a man with a mysterious medallion and a centuries-old manuscript, to help Carrillee discover that not everyone’s idea of divine intervention is the same. For some, it means salvation; to others, it could mean a terrifying death by the most ancient words of the western world.
