Brother Stephen dies suddenly. That's when things get more complicated.
Is Stephen's death his wake-up call?
That's a possibility that slowly dawns on him. Soon he is behind the wheel of a Prius, driving through his afterlife, listening to himself being interviewed on NPR. His afterlife feels a lot like high school, he tells Terry, and she questions him about those lawsuits filed by students who claimed to have been molested by pedophile Brothers. As an administrator of his Roman Catholic religious order, he was caught in the middle of these heartbreaking cases. In fact, the lawsuit he was dealing with the moment he died is one that strikes especially close to his heart. He once knew the plaintiff. He once knew her very well. He also knew very well the Brother who is named in the lawsuit.
Now that he is dead, Brother Stephen is more determined than ever to get to the truth. He spends his afterlife solving a terrible mystery or two about the survivor and about the accused. The biggest mystery he faces, however, is the one about himself.

A Great Good Place for Books welcomes Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Robert Lowe on Monday, May 21st at 7:00 p.m. He'll be reading from his debut novel, Project Moses.
KIrkus Reviews calls Project Moses "...a taut thriller...with an ideal fusion of wile and wit."
Moses is a high-tech, bioterrorism thriller in the Grisham mode with romance,
suspense and humor. Enzo Lee, 37, a burned out reporter, has forsaken
investigative reporting on the East Coast to churn out feature fluff in San
Francisco. He likes his North Beach apartment, steps away from his Chinatown
roots. Running, tai chi, great food, women who are attracted to his exotic
looks. Life is good.
Until Lee's comfortable life is shaken when he is ordered
to cover the unexplained deaths of a local judge and prosecutor. Intrigued by
the connection, and the judge’s attractive niece, Sarah Armstrong, Lee begins to
uncover a bioterrorism scandal whose perpetrators - including government
officials and Silicon Valley titans - will kill to conceal.
When Lee and Sarah
become targets, the question becomes whether the pair can evade their hunters
and piece together the story before their time runs out.
