Synopsis:  
Daniel Byrne is an investigator for the Vatican’s secretive Office of the Devil’s Advocate—the department that scrutinizes miracle claims. Over ten years and 721 cases, not one miracle he tested has proved true. But case #722 is different; Daniel’s estranged uncle, a crooked TV evangelist, has started speaking in tongues—and accurately predicting the future. Daniel knows Reverend Tim Trinity is a con man. Could Trinity also be something more?
The evangelist himself is baffled by his newfound power—and the violent reaction it provokes. After years of scams, he suddenly has the ability to predict everything from natural disasters to sports scores. Now the mob wants him dead for ruining their gambling business, and the Vatican wants him debunked as a false messiah. On the run from assassins, Trinity flees with Daniel’s help through the back roads of the Bible Belt to New Orleans, where Trinity plans to deliver a final prophecy so shattering his enemies will do anything to keep him silent.


 My Review:  
Awesome, a book that took me around the world into an area of unknown to me. Yes, I know it is fiction, but when you are able to read so that you feel you are actually in the book. Well then let me just say I am not of the same religion as what is in this book, neither am I a investigator but I was in this book. 

Author Sean Chercover has a new fan. His style of writing is so intense that I did not want to put it down. And even though I knew the book I was reading at the time could be changed I was hooked. I will be looking forward to more of author Sean Chercover. 

The characters within the pages were such that I could be right in the middle of what was going on in their life and be a part of it, but at the same time at different places just stand back and read. I loved it. 

I will not get into the book due to the fact as I said I was reading ARC-Uncorrected Proof. Therefore things may have changed. Scene's, names and etc. may not be the same.

So due to the above I am giving this book a Breath of Life Rating of:

Five Clock Rating!!!

Disclosure: I received this book in exchange for my review. The opinions are mine. And your opinion may differ.
