Description

Brother Stephen dies. That's when things get

complicated. Is Stephen's death his wake-up

call? That's one theory. Soon he is behind the

wheel of a Prius, listening to himself being

interviewed on NPR. His afterlife feels a lot

like high school, he tells Terry, and she asks

about those lawsuits filed by students who

claimed to have been molested by pedophile

Brothers. As an administrator of his Roman

Catholic religious order, he was caught in

the middle of all these heartbreaking cases.

In fact, the lawsuit he was dealing with the

moment he died strikes close to home. He

once knew the plaintiff knew her very well.

Brother Stephen is a determined sort, and

spends his afterlife solving a terrible mystery

or two or three about the survivor, about the

accused, and about himself.
