my novel
A construction worker is shot dead only to be found alive in the morgue. He travels the world to find the truth of his resurrection.

Rod Hill, a construction worker in Florida, is accidentally killed. The next day, he regains consciousness. Doctors consider his revival miraculous. An FBI agent, Vernon Nielsen, is sent to scrutinize Rod for signs of fraud. Vernon is convinced that Rod is genuine. Vernon's wife, Ethel, establishes a web-site for the resurrected man. Using unauthorized FBI gear, the Nielsens plant a video camera on Rod. Millions of people view his every movement.

Rod does not know that he received an experimental AIDS drug that might have cured him, but certainly damaged his brain, warping his memories and intellect. The program's security is run by a government operative named Hauser, whose agency is so secret it has no name. Hauser decides to give Rod a new face and identity and return him to society to study his progress. But Rod's death and revival threaten to ruin Hauser's career.

In the European nation of Kharnstan, members of a religious cult learn of Rod Hill. A priestess, Aeva Tbolski, is sent to America to analyze Rod's spirit. If he is either ghost or demon, Aeva will return him to the afterlife.

Trying to account for his survival, Rod ventures to areas of living and dying across the world: A corpse-revival ritual in Africa. The birth of a child in Europe. An assisted suicide in America. He receives funding from his adherents, who study their computers for news of the returned man. Aeva becomes Rod's companion. Though Aeva saves Rod's life in Africa, she still must decide if he is worthy of life.

Learning of Aeva's purpose, some of Rod's flowers try to kill her. Rod saves Aeva from a bizarre disease. Rod and Aeva find they cannot remain together, or apart. The same with his flowers. Vernon is forced out of the FBI. Aeva's parents, the leaders of their church, are arrested for murder. During a maddening recollection of his death, Rod rapes Aeva.

Aeva and Rod decide to forget life and death and go fishing. But Hauser lures them back to the remote AIDS lab to kill Rod. Aeva and the Nielsens respond in such desperate confusion that Rod is shot again. He does not survive. Flowers will keep him on life support indefinitely. Aeva returns to Kharnstan to face the authorities. She is carrying Rod's child.
