A man who has been given only a few months to live comes up for an idea for an unusual reality show. The show will pit representatives from the major religions against each other in a legal type competition. Oliver Finney is a judge and the person chosen to represent Christianity. He and some of the other contestents begin to suspect that there is a plot to kill one of them. Finney figures out a way to send coded messages to his assistant, Nikki Moreno (who Singer fans will recognize from his other books). Nikki and an assistant figure out how to crack the coded messages using "The Cross Examination of Jesus Christ" (A tie in book Singer wrote to go along with this one). But will they be able to convince the powers that be and help Finney stop the assasin before it's too late?
As far as a novel this was OK, it wasn't riveting or surprising but pretty solid. The religion aspect is of course very strong. The code thing would be cool if you are into that. ( )

When a brilliant billionaire is diagnosed with inoperable brain cancer, he realizes that all his considerable wealth cannot prepare him to meet his Maker. But he has an idea that might: He will stage life's greatest reality show. With his true agenda hidden, he auditions followers from all the world's major religions, inviting them to the trial of their lives on a remote island, defending their spiritual beliefs against all challenges. Oliver Finney, a feisty old judge with his own secrets, is "chosen" to defend Christianity. As the program takes a strange twist, he quickly realizes that he's trapped in a game of deadly agendas that may cost him his life. With internet access monitored, Finney sends coded messages to his former law clerk, Nikki Moreno. Aided by a teen crypto-geek, Nikki soon discovers the key to understanding Finney's clues in an apologetics book, The Cross Examination of Jesus Christ. In a unique twist, readers are invited to join Nikki in a race against time as she struggles to decipher the mysteries contained in the ancient words of Christ before her former boss dies defending them.… (more)
