Protagonist Rick Bullock takes the road less traveled when he quits his job as an advertising executive to become director of a homeless shelter. Trading in a six-figure salary for paltry pay and even less respect? Costly. But helping one man get back on his feet? Priceless.
When Zeus, a mentally-challenged gentle giant and longtime shelter resident, is arrested for murdering evangelist Benjamin Kurios, Rick wants answers. Convinced Zeus is incapable of such a horrific act, Rick, along with a colorful cadre of characters, sets off on a journey to keep an innocent man off death row.
The trip takes a disturbing detour when the bizarre group stumbles upon a transcript of the Book of Nathan, a lost book of the Bible that finally ends the debate about when a human inherits a soul.
As this controversial discovery attracts the sinister attentions of a Jersey mobster, pro-life and pro-choice groups, and a devious billionaire used to getting his way, Rick scrambles to stay one step ahead on this dangerous road--and save Zeus before time runs out. Rick Bullock knows how to save a life, but this time, his life may be the one at stake.
