Summary
Religion is supposed to shield children from the horrors of the world, but one Sunday nine-year-old Jess Hall secretly witnesses his autistic brother being smothered to death during a healing service at a little church in the mountains of North Carolina. Clem Barefield, the local sheriff, arrives to find a group of charismatic believers who have moved the boy's body and are unwilling to utter a word about his death. At the center of the mystery is Carson Chambliss, a snake-handling ex-convict turned preacher whose past is just as mysterious as the power he claims to possess
Summary
Jess Hall, growing up deep in the heart of an unassuming mountain town that believes in protecting its own, is plunged into an adulthood for which he is not prepared when his autistic older brother, Stump, sneaks a look at something he isn't supposed to, which has catastrophic repercussions
