A fast-paced political and supernatural thriller with a cyberpunk edge. An apparent “forever war” rages between beings of unimaginable power, but the choices of a reporter and a reverend can change everything…. Rebekah Berman, reporter for The Chicago Chronicle, is on the trail of a cataclysmic ecological disaster in southern Iraq that has killed millions of people. Could this have anything to do with a bizarre fish kill in Canada’s Yukon that has left biologists puzzled for decades? And what does John Fitzgerald Hawke, an eclectic preacher from the Appalachia region who has global followers, have to do with it? Might his Church of the Next Covenant be involved somehow? Rebekah is plunged into deadly intrigue with a powerfully connected PR firm, a secret project dubbed The Big Picture, and a most unlikely partnership in the midst of a nuclear strike in the Middle East.
