Some cases test a private
investigator’s wits, others test his courage, and still others, his character.
In Salvation Boulevard, P.I. Carl Van Wagener has found a case that
tests them all, and then goes on to test his soul.
A professor is dead and a
suspect—who has confessed—is in custody. But nothing is what it seems. After
all, the dead man is an atheist professor, the accused an Islamic foreign
student, the defense attorney a Jew, and the detective a born-again Christian.
As Carl gets deeper and deeper into the investigation of the death of professor
Nathaniel MacLeod, his most basic beliefs and relationships are tried and his world
is turned upside down. The mega-church, the pastor, and his new wife who have
redeemed Carl from a life of grim debauchery insist on his dropping the case.
But he can’t stop searching for the real killer and the truth—no matter what
the personal cost.
Salvation Boulevard is a page-turning thriller in the
tradition of John Grisham and Richard Condon that grapples with the ecstatic
and entropic nature of religious faith in contemporary America. Download and start listening now!
