Miracle or scam...? An exhilarating tale from the New York Times bestselling author of ROAD DOGS.
Ginny Worrel was blind but now can see after being touched by a young man called Juvenal. Suddenly the kid with the healing hands is flavour of the month in downtown Detroit.
Bill Hill, a former minister turned RV salesman, has dollar signs in his eyes and a get-rich-quick scheme; the priests at the Sacred Heart Rehabilitation Centre want Juvenal to soothe the brows of their alcoholic inmates; and beautiful baton-twirler Lynn Faulkner simply wants him to soothe her.
But with a slew of cash-hungry hucksters on his back, Juvenal's got a trick or two up his sleeve that nobody sees coming...
