Preeminent astrophysicist Dr. Emil Euler Ganz vanished with none caution to his kin or colleagues, merely to reappear fifteen years later as "Father Jupiter," founder and charismatic chief of the medical cult the Order of the earrings of God. Now he is dead—a vial of snoozing drugs and an empty bottle of vodka status close to his dead body.
Was Ganz's demise an coincidence? Suicide? Or did an individual hasten Jupiter upfront out of this global? those are the questions LAPD Lieutenant Peter Decker is decided to respond to as he enters the cult's fortress-like compound. in the meantime, the mysterious disappearance of an Order acolyte and a toddler turns an already unstable scenario even uglier, and Decker will want the knowledge and aid of his spouse, Rina Lazarus, to defuse a ticking time bomb of jealousy, greed, and lies sooner than it explodes, destroying a large number of faulty grownup lives and ratings of blameless youngsters.
