About the Book

Abe is a Holocaust survivor who suffers from post-traumatic stress. His visions and dreams recount his loving father who was killed by the Nazis during the Holocaust. Now he believes the ghost of a martyred priest is asking him to protect a certain cathedral and its pastor. Monk, the pastor, is haunted by his failure to fulfill his mother’s expectations. He has memories of a father who abandoned him. He questions his “marriage” to the Church and blames his father for his alcoholism and other moral lapses. This homeless Jewish man and despondent Catholic priest share their spiritual values and establish a deep connection. Juanita, a Mexican psychologist-combatant and undocumented immigrant, complicates their efforts. She works for Special Forces at Homeland Security and uncovers a plot to cripple the Catholic Church and destroy an ancient cathedral. Now, Abe and Monk have two weeks to combat malevolent forces and save the Church. Can these anguished souls, with the help of ghostly protectors, save themselves, or will their suffering drown them both?
