A giant man called Zeus is arrested for the murder of Benjamin Kuros, a famous evangelist. Zeus is accused of beating Kuros to death with a wooden cross. People are protesting and wanting Zeus punished.
Rick Bullock is a former advertising executive who is now director of a homeless shelter. This homeless shelter is where Zeus has made his home. Rick is convinced that Zeus is just not capable of hurting anyone let alone beating someone to death with a cross.
Rick sets out to prove Zeus is innocent. His sidekicks are a couple of very different characters and their trip to Florida where Zeus is being held is nothing short of hysterical. Rick has asked Dr. Douglas Kool who works with the United Way for help in financing the trip. Doug agrees but only if Rick will see that a mobster’s niece travels with the group. The mobster has obtained a job interview for Twyla Tharp, his niece, at Universal Studios in Orlando and Rick is to see she makes it to the job interview.
The story gets more intense when Rick finds out that a disk containing a lost book of the Bible, The Book of Nathan, was lost at the murder site. There are several groups that will do most anything to obtain the disk and several are convinced that Rick is the key to recovering this disk.
A mystery that puts Rick in a lot of danger but the characters he associates with are humorous and very, very interesting.
