An unnamed author is invited to the International Congress of Biography and Memory in Jerusalem. In the conference rooms of a luxury hotel, he listens to a series of extraordinary life stories. But it is Jos Maturana - evangelical pastor, recovering drug addict and ex-con - with his story of redemption at the hands of a charismatic tattooed messiah from Miami, who fascinates the author more than any other. But is it true? Hours later however, Maturana is found dead in his hotel room. The narrator, moved by Maturana's life story sets out to discover the truth about his death. [Amazon.co.uk]
