published as The Cross Examination of Oliver Finney
When a brilliant billionaire is diagnosed with inoperable
brain cancer, he realizes that all his considerable wealth cannot prepare him
to meet his Maker. But he has an idea that might: he will stage the ultimate
reality show. With his true agenda hidden, he auditions followers from all the
world’s major religions, inviting them to the trial of their lives on a remote
island, where they must defend their beliefs against spiritual challenges.
Oliver Finney, a feisty old judge with his own secrets, is chosen to
defend Christianity. As the program takes a strange twist, he quickly realizes
he is trapped in a game of deadly agendas that may cost him his life. With
Internet access monitored, Finney sends coded messages to his law clerk, Nikki
Moreno. Aided by a teen crypto-geek, Nikki soon discovers the key to
understanding Finney’s clues in an apologetics book Finney wrote and must race
against time to decipher the mysteries contained in the ancient words of Christ
before her boss dies defending them.
