About the book:What haunting legacy awaits deep beneath the barrios and wealthy enclaves of Southern California?
A billionaire driven mad by grief. A pastor in love with the wrong woman. An illegal immigrant desperate to feed his family.
Only Lupe de la Garza can save them from the ancient evil lurking in a lost mission's ruins, but it will take an act of faith beyond all human power.
An idyllic Spanish mission collapses in the eighteenth century atop the supernatural evidence of a shocking crime. Twelve generations later the ground is opened up, the forgotten ruins are disturbed, and rich and poor alike confront the onslaught of resurging hell on earth. Caught up in the catastrophe are...
- · A humble shopkeeper compelled to leave her tiny village deep in Mexico to preach in America
- · A minister wracked with guilt for loving the wrong woman
- · An unimaginably wealthy man, blinded to the consequences of his grand plans
- · A devoted father and husband driven to a horrible discovery that changes everything
From the high Sierra Madre mountains to the harsh Sonoran desert, from the privileged world of millionaire moguls to the impoverished immigrants who serve them, Athol Dickson once again weaves a gripping story of suspense that spans centuries and cultures to explore the abiding possibility of miracles.
