In Boston, a young woman finds herself pregnant--even though she is still a virgin.

In Ireland, another young woman discovers she is in the same impossible condition.

And in cities all around the world, medical authorities are overwhelmed by epidemics, droughts, famines, floods, and worse. It all feels like a sign that something awful is coming.

Anne Fitzgerald, a former nun turned private investigator, is hired by the Archdiocese of Boston to investigate the immaculate conceptions. Even as she comes to care about and trust the young women, she realizes that both are in great danger. Terrifying forces of light and darkness are gathering. Stepping into uncharted territory where the unknown is just the beginning, Anne must discover the truth--to save the young women, to save herself, and to protect the future of all mankind.

More superstitious nonsense, this time from the Patterson factory. However, having said that, it's fast reading and I read it to the end. Obviously, a sequel is in the works.

I was captivated through the entire book and found myself connecting with all three female characters. Definitely different from his other works.

An unusual plot for Patterson. Read the 'book' and supernatural and mythology all rolled into a hard-to-put-down book.

Not a bad book. Entertaining without being too brainy. It mixes up the theological thriller that seemed to be so en vogue at the time of publishing with the good old Patterson cliffhanger. Not bad for an afternoon of reading
