As an agent of the Tolerance Bureau, Jim Rogan’s specialty is tracking down cerebral criminals. Heretics. A class of criminal much worse than terrorists, child molesters, serial murderers or insurance brokers.
Cerebral criminals are those who dare to stray from the tenets of Free Thought, threatening the very foundations of modern society. They may be non-conforming atheists, intellectual anarchists, dissenting scientists, or even theists. And Jim Rogan is the best at hunting them.
When a scientist is accused of intellectual anarchy and disappears, Jim is assigned to find her. But this is no ordinary case – and not just because the missing scientist is famous. She also happens to be an old college sweetheart.
At first Jim refuses to believe the charges against her. When he last knew her, she was a good atheist like all responsible citizens. Smart people don’t believe in God, especially scientists, and Jim knows that Hillary was smarter than most – and as everyone knows, there’s no proof for God.
Or is there? As Jim tracks her down, he learns more than he bargained for. And what he discovers puts him on a collision course with everything and everyone he holds most dear, threatening to shatter his life.
