Dazzling, but lucid as though Flannery O'Connor had gone back to the Ireland of her forebears to write a novel." Peter Behrens, author of "The Law of Dreams " A small Irish town. A river flood. The return of a prodigal son. On the banks of the river Rua, when the rains have stopped and the waters receded, nine bodies are found. What took them to the river? Enoch O Reilly, a self-made preacher and Elvis impersonator claiming to be just returned to Ireland from America, launches a radio show "Revival Hour."
