Pastor Jim Reezall is renowned as the hellfire preacher always calling for fire and brimstone to rain down on the sinners of the world. So when he dies in a wild bushfire there are some who believe he got what he deserved. Enter private detective Johnny Ravine, asked by the pastor’s daughter – with whom he is trying to develop a relationship - to solve the mystery of his death.
It quickly becomes apparent that it was murder. And very soon Johnny learns that huge sums of money – possibly millions of dollars – are missing from charities administered by the pastor. Was the pastor really using the money to pay off gunrunners? And, if so, why? The answers – along with the truth about Johnny’s long-lost father - come in a thrilling climax set amidst a raging Yarra Valley bushfire.
