P.I. Carl Van Wagener has found a case that tests his wit, his courage and his soul. A professor is dead and a suspect -- who has confessed -- in custody. But nothing is what it seems. After all, the dead man is an atheist professor, the accused an Islamic foreign student, the defense attorney a Jew, and the detective a Born Again Christian. As Carl gets deeper, his most basic beliefs and relationships are tried and his world is turned upside down.
