Description
Anthony Murdock has a lot on his mind. He is a minister in training at Second Baptist Church of Shepherd Hills and a rising account executive at Shaw Enterprises. As a Christian man, Anthony finds himself caught up in deceit when he makes a decision - despite the gnawing feeling inside that warns him against it - to compromise his morals for a lot of fast cash. His wife, Terri, a snotty successful interior designer, is becoming increasingly nervous that she might one day have to live the life of a cash strapped preacher's wife. Regretful of his get rich quick scheme and on the verge of being exposed, Anthony decides to make things right only to find himself compromising again.


Disgusted with himself, he knows he must do more than confess his sin of greed; he must conquer it. Anthony, like Samson in the Bible, risks going down with his enemies to do the right thing, preserve his marriage and regain his reputation.

        Starred review from October 1, 2006
        A young African American minister-in--training falls into crisis at his day job as an account executive in a high-stakes development company. In the deep of night, more than a million dollars has come Anthony's way for his influence regarding construction of a downtown railroad corridor. Unfortunately, the railway would sink another, less-well-funded initiative to build a refuge for the poor. Unfortunately, also, the money is really a bribe, which Anthony has allowed himself to overlook in his lust for power and for his beautiful--though snotty and shallow--wife. At last, Anthony's conscience asserts itself, and he tries to find a way to atone for his sins without going to jail or losing the wife. This makes for a suspenseful story, but it's also a fine character study and a thoughtful examination of the modern(Reprinted with permission of Booklist, copyright 2006, American Library Association.)
