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.
