Jonah Murtag is an Acolyte on the New Bethlehem police force. His job: eradicate all heretical religious faiths, their practitioners, and artefacts. Murtag's got problems-one of his partners is a zealot, and he's in love with the other one. Trouble at work, trouble at home. Murtag realizes that you can rob a citizenry of almost anything, but you can't take away its faith. When a string of bombings paralyzes the city, religious fanatics are initially suspected, but startling clues point to a far more ominous perpetrator. If Murtag doesn't get things sorted out, the Divine Council will dispatch The Quints, aka: Heaven's Own Bagmen. The clock is ticking towards doomsday for the Chosen of New Bethlehem. And Jonah Murtag's got another problem. The biggest and most worrisome . . . Jonah isn't a believer anymore.
Nick Cutter is the pseudonym for the Giller and Trilliumnominated Craig Davidson, author of THE TROOP, CATARACT CITY, SARAH COURT, and RUST & BONE (made into a film starring Marion Cotillard).

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Different, but good That was different. Different in a good way. Very different from this author compared to his other books. That being said, I enjoyed this. The story didn't drag.
