    Ostensibly, Francis McNulty was born on third base - wealth and brains in abundance. But startlingly, in 1984 he channels the renowned medieval Saint Francis of Assisi by renouncing the material world in favor of a life of extreme poverty and religious devotion. Mysteriously, he disappears in 1987 and is never heard from again, presumed dead by almost everyone. Now his repentant and mega-rich brother, dying from ALS, pleads with McAbee to come at the matter with fresh eyes.
