This is a detective/murder mystery featuring my continuing character Jack Novak. After a grotesque murder involving a well-known preacher, a strange, charismatic man comes into Jack's office in Roswell, Georgia, explaining that he doesn't know who he is or how he got there. Jack tries to help him but soon finds out that the man's fingerprints are all over the murdered man's home. An investigation shows that the man is from Angel Fire, New Mexico, and has led a sordid life and may well have committed the murder. His former lover, a beautiful Apache woman, tells Jack he is guilty but the man continues to deny it. A murder trial comes to a surprising and puzzling climax.
Jack Novak believes the strange, charismatic man in his office may have amnesia and wants to help him. Local police investigating a grotesque murder find the man's prints all over the victim's home. This leads Jack and his partner Homes Kinney to Angel Fire, New Mexico, the man's home town where they find he is far from the religious zealot he appears to be. A beautiful Apache woman tells Jack the man is dangerous and evil and Jack and Homes barely escape with their lives as they investigate. The man comes to trial in Atlanta and draws nationwide attention. The trial reveals even more dramatic events and finishes with a chilling outcome.
