Sardonic, cold and uncaring, journalist Weldon Drake is an unlikely man of faith. When he was appointed a deacon in Boston’s most prominent African-American church, Drake figured it was a mistake. Maybe he was right. Because serving God could get him killed.
After a brilliant and beautiful computer scientist is nearly murdered in the church, Drake is determined to find out why. He falls afoul of a renowned MIT professor more heartless than Drake himself. He uncovers an international band of hackers plotting the worst financial crime in history, and confronts a brutal team of enforcers, experts in the dark arts of torture and murder.
And Kenton discovers the most remarkable conspiracy of all—a secret society of powerful black men, hidden in the heart of the church, who have quietly tampered with history for nearly 150 years.
