A Judge on Trial. His Life on the Line.
When a brilliant billionaire is diagnosed with inoperable brain cancer, he realizes that all his considerable wealth cannot prepare him to meet his Maker. But he has an idea that might: He will stage life’s greatest reality show. With his true agenda hidden, he auditions followers from all the world’s major religions, inviting them to the trial of their lives on a remote island, defending their spiritual beliefs against all challenges.
Oliver Finney, a feisty old judge with his own secrets, is “chosen” to defend Christianity. As the program takes a strange twist, he quickly realizes that he’s trapped in a game of deadly agendas that may cost him his life. With internet access monitored, Finney sends coded messages to his former law clerk, Nikki Moreno.
Aided by a teen crypto-geek, Nikki soon discovers the key to understanding Finney’s clues in an apologetics book, The Cross Examination of Jesus Christ. In a unique twist, readers are invited to join Nikki in a race against time as she struggles to decipher the mysteries contained in the ancient words of Christ before her former boss dies defending them.
Bestselling author Randy Singer offers an innovative new suspense thriller that will have you scrambling with Nikki to track down and decipher the clues–and come away with a stronger faith.
