4.0 out of 5 stars: A Thoughtful Satire

By C. Longley on April 8, 2008

Format: Paperback

This book is a lot fun. It skewers all the usual suspects as it explores the ramifications of the miraculous uncovering of a sacred relic in the Californian desert. A rollicking good yarn develops as we follow various characters in their attempts to secure the toolbox – the sale price rises through the roof, the media goes into over-drive and the hapless hero of the story, a weary put-upon journalist, comes close to losing his marbles as he tries to extricate himself from the mess. But all is not as it seems. Could the toolbox be a fake or are there altogether more miraculous proceedings afoot?
