Description

Thirty five years after the detonation of the atomic bomb over Nagasaki and the withdrawal of the spirit of Jesus Christ from Earth, down-at-the-heels PI, Phaeton Troupe, is hired to unravel the mystery of the disappearance of Natalie Pierce, a college co-ed. Uncovering the truth not only sets Phaeton on a course of confrontation with a brilliant, sadistic Mafia kingpin plotting global domination, but entangles him in a web of intrigue spun by powerful, reality-defying galactic life forms. Risking another round of racial turmoil in Los Angeles, Phaeton must navigate a maze of deceit and conflicting motives and interests of fiercely determined forces, including, his client, Natalie's mother.

On both sides of the clouds, Phaeton is marked for death. Only by surviving such ordeals as his brains being frozen, his insides roasted, and an encounter with a six-fisted ex-pug, will he not only learn the fate of Natalie Pierce, but embark upon a quest to save humanity from total destruction and restore the spirit of Christ to the world. Can he?
