Publisher's Summary

A Michigan woman was blind and now she can see, after being touched by a young man who calls himself Juvenal. Maybe it was just coincidence, but Bill Hill - who used to run the spectacular Uni-Faith Ministry in Dalton, Georgia, and now sells RVs - can see dollar signs when he looks at this kid with the magic "touch." The trouble is that others see them also, including a wacko fundamentalist fascist with his own private army of the faithful and an assortment of media leeches. But everyone who's looking to put the touch on the healer is in for a big surprise - because Juvenal's got a trick or two up his sleeve that nobody sees coming.

A Most Peculiar Elmore Leonard Novel

I've read and listened to many Elmore Leonard books, including a number of his Westerns, and this is far and away the strangest. Something of a philosophical exploration with a bizarre cast of characters, including a faith healer, a former faith healer, his former baton twirled, and a Roman Catholic Latin Mass renegade, who don't quite mesh together. A must-read only if, like me, you're a Leonard completing. Nicely read for George Guidall.
