Al Hasp and Norm Carpenter are partners in a successful Orange County private investigation firm. When Norm, considered the brains of the outfit, announces he has become a born-again Christian and will be resigning, Al asks him to take one final case. It means going undercover in the organization of televangelist and faith healer Vincent Majors. Al believes Majors is a phony and when Majors? son-in-law, a pro basketball coach, is murdered, the case takes on added complications and then explodes at a Christian college in Southern California. Neither an attack on nor a promotion of fundamentalist Christianity, this is a refreshing look behind the scenes of one of America’s biggest businesses, in the entertaining guise of classical whodunit.

Eye of God is a knockout, something really fresh in detective fiction. Wise, witty, truly original. Jon L. Breen is so important as a reviewer that we forget how good a novelist he is. This is Edgar material for sure. -- Ed Gorman, Bad Money

Leave it to the inventive Jon L. Breen to come up with something entirely new in crime fiction, private eye partners who differ along religious lines. It’s a multiple-murder mystery involving a powerful television evangelist and his wayward daughter. --Dick Lochte, Lawless
