Skip Moore and his long time buddy James Lessor are two young men whose dreams haven't exactly come true.  They find themselves working in dead-end jobs with no bright hope for the future until they see the opportunity to make a load of money working as food vendors for a huge tent revival  held annually by the Reverend Preston Cashdollar who leads the largest church in the Miami area with a congregation of fifteen thousand members.  His revival's are legendary for their huge attendance and people have got to eat!

As with all things that seem too good to be true, the whole operation may not be what it appears to be.  The unsolved murder of a young woman, a senator, and a TV talk show host are somehow connected to the revival and it's message from Corinthians "You will be made rich in every way so that you can be generous on every occasion!"

The other food vendors turn out to be a group of men with questionable backgrounds who run a fixed poker game.  James and Skip find their truck tires flat from bullet holes and receive a note telling them to "get out of Dodge."

This is a fast-paced novel filled with friendship, betrayal, dreams of greatness, and the world of reality.  You won't know who did what to whom until the very  end.  An intriguing read that will keep you on the edge of your seat.  What do you think?
