Special Agent Gil Martins is a religious man who is losing his faith; the very nature of his job has led him to question the existence of a God who could allow the things that Gil sees every day, but then his new-found atheism is challenged... A chilling modern horror story that asks: who do you turn to when God wants to destroy you?
A chilling modern horror story in which the source of the horror is totally unexpected - and utterly terrifying. Special Agent Gil Martins investigates domestic terrorism for the Houston FBI. Once a religious man, now his job makes him question the existence of a God who could allow the violence he sees every day. Gil is asked to investigate a series of unexplained deaths of victims known for their liberal views. When a woman tells Gil that these men have been killed by prayer, he questions her sanity. Yet the evidence mounts that there might be something in what she says, even more so when Gil finds that his own life is on the line.
