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.
