Hutus storm a church and kill everyone but priest Terry Dunn,
saying his first mass -- and then segues (rather
incongruously, it seems) into what publicity calls "Leonard's
funniest straight-faced novel to date." At home in Detroit to
raise funds for Rwanda's orphans, Terry meets tough stand-up
comic Debbie Dewey, on the lookout for a guy who conned her
out of some big dough. Soon they're in cahoots, and Debbie
learns that there is more to Terry than meets the eye.
