Publisher's Summary

Gil Martins investigates domestic terrorism for the FBI. He is a religious man but he’s coming close to losing his faith due to the nature of his job.

Gil starts to investigate a series of unexplained deaths, and as the evidence mounts, it becomes apparent that they have been killed through prayer.

His newfound atheism is severely challenged, and he finds his own life is next on the line.

Did not expect the supernatural turn

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

Kerr's work is usually genius - this is no exception, however if you are expecting/wanting a logical crime work you will be disapointed

Fans of the supernatural will be fine - its just not me

What was most disappointing about Philip Kerr’s story?

The turn to the supernatural, the taster does not prepare you for where this book goes, those who are not fans of the supernatural beware

Is Philip Kerr feeling alright ?

Would you try another book written by Philip Kerr or narrated by Mark Zeisler?

I am a fan of Philip Kerr, but this book should never have got past his publisher. Perhaps he is going through a personal religious crisis, and this is his attempt to exorcise his problems. I hope it worked for him, because this turgid, repetitive, occasionally laughable novel certainly didn't do it for me.

It wasn't helped by a ponderous narrator whose "Scottish" accent veered between Ireland, Pakistan and Eastern European Yiddish.

There is a good novel to be written about the American religious right. This isn't it.
