Publisher Comments:

Big-shot ad exec Dan Steele feels entitled to the best life has to offer — even if he has to live way beyond his means to acquire it. But there's hope on the horizon. Dan has just stolen what's sure to be an award-winning idea for a multimillion-dollar account. If he can keep the creditors at bay long enough, he'll get the keys to the executive restroom and all his problems will be solved.

Unfortunately, that's when his brother, a Catholic priest, shows up at Dan's door in need of a loan to pay for some essential medical attention. Being both financially and morally challenged, Dan hands over his insurance card instead of his credit card. But it's too late. After running up a bill for $300,000, Father Michael goes the way of all flesh.

Now Dan has a choice: go to prison for insurance fraud or take a vow of poverty and become a man of the cloth. Before he can say "God bless," Dan finds himself pursued by a relentless insurance investigator, the psychopathic copywriter whose idea he stole, and a deadly killer from his brother's mysterious past. And, as if that wasn't enough, Dan finds himself falling in love with a gun-toting nun. Let us pray.

Synopsis:

An advertising man is forced to impersonate his twin brother, a Catholic priest, in this audacious satire from the acclaimed author of Pest Control. Soon, Dan finds himself admiring the good-looking, gun-toting Sister Peg, who gives him impure thoughts about renouncing his vow — not that he ever took one.

Synopsis:

When advertising executive Dan Steele's twin brother, a priest, returns from the Third World with a bug, Dan sends him to the hospital on his own insurance company's dime. When his brother dies, Dan suddenly faces prison for fraud. And then there is the enraged copywriter whose idea he stole. Ever the marketer, Dan devises an ingenious escape: pose as his dead brother, the Father.

About the Author

Bill Fitzhugh is the author of seven novels. He loves the sound of mandolins, slide guitars, and banjos. He's fond of barbecue, okra, and fried catfish. He's been to the Grand Ole Opry and likes all kinds of country music. His biggest regret is that he's never owned a proper pickup truck. He lives in Los Angeles with his wife, three dogs, and a cat, all of whom like to sing along.
