Death welcomes Tom Maxwell, a policeman, into the world of the afterlife. Maxwell will learn to work with the complexities of his new world, a world of a new DNA, the shock of not meeting his God, hieroglyphs and psychic power beyond his wildest dreams as a hard-boiled New York City cop finds himself tested in his faith. A heart-stopping metaphysical adventure into time, space and immortal energy, Ross Friedman’s Apotheosis is a shot of pure light into the dark horizon of science fiction.

As science’s endless pursuit of answering the unanswerable questions never tires, Maxwell is challenged to question the intent of the questions themselves. Perhaps the endless pursuit is designed to be endless? Destiny has a design for Tom and it is a man named Ajay Mehra who will show him the way. In Daygon, the world he finds himself in, Tom is tasked to protect God’s intent while others believe that since they did not find God after their deaths, that there must not be a God and conclude that they can become Gods themselves by mastering the sciences involved in the afterlife. Friedman addresses a thorny modern question in the adversarial struggle between Insu Dong Yul, a scientist and Tom–the question of God’s existence after modern science has written him out of the equation. It reflects the seemingly endless struggle between believers and non-believers that rage on today. In entering the portals of Daygon, Apotheosis challenges the characters to have faith in God after experiencing death and not meeting God.

Tom Maxwell turns into a denizen of Daygon–and his policeman’s mind is perfect for the quest he is set on. In the ensuing philosophical, scientific, religious and physical struggle, he learns a new way of life and protects the intention of life’s very design, the way that God had intended for mankind. Apotheosis is a thinking person’s adventure book that covers scopes of beliefs of many cultures and philosophies while maintaining fast paced action; it has a love story which underscores the importance of man’s consistent error of not learning from history; and an intriguing conundrum about the afterlife, which is a test of faith, regardless of belief. It leaves readers enjoying the adventure and pondering the many questions mankind cannot answer. It will leave them wondering when Friedman will come out with his next novel.
