About a deaf-mute child who claims to have seen a vision of Mother Mary, miraculously cured, and cures others. A tale about evil masquerading as good.

In its core, an exploration Roman Catholicism; poses some interesting questions about the religion, its icons, and faith. Pace : saunters along for three quarts of the book with short, but rewarding sprints for the tenacious reader. Mildly scary.

Whilst the author is lauded as "UK's Stephen King," ardent readers of Steve may find this book as a little too draggy for their taste.
