He was born on a day of pain - November 22, 1963. He came of age in agony: that moment of tragedy when fun-loving, beer-drinking, rock-and-roll deejay Paul Handler discovered the inexplicable power in his own hands...
It is the power to make the wounded well...the power to make the lame walk and the sick healthy. It is a power that will sap his soul and plunge him into the world of a famous faith healer. It is a power that can turn to rage - even murder. It is a gift that makes Paul Handler a living, breathing, human sacrifice.
For thousands of years a secret covenant has guarded a lineage to which Paul Handler is heir - scapegoats who take humankind's anguish upon themselves. Now, while the covenant searches for him, and one man seeks to destroy him, Paul is making a lonely, fightening journey to the core of his identity and to his destiny: to all the pain his soul can bear, to all the redemption he can give, to the freedom that is death...
