ON THE HEAD OF A PIN
Sister Althea Parker is your average caseworker—assessing individual need, facilitating celestial placement, and providing both guardian angel and the blessed assistance through the transition period. (Her office is full of bright, cheery brochures with titles like “Body Language for the Newly Corporeal” and “Being Named A Prophet of the Lord: What Can I Expect?”)
Yet when one of her clients is discovered stuffed in a dumpster, his wings torn off and blessed protectee missing, Sister Althea is not content to simply turn the matter over to the Principalities. Instead, she finds herself traveling deep into the seedy underbelly of celestial hierarchy, determined to discover the truth about her client, and find the missing saint.
Along the way, she finds a grudging ally in the unaffiliated Ramiel, an angel whose casual blasphemy and rumored Nephilim past make her dangerous company. (Her habit of blood-red lipstick and flirting with Ophanim doesn’t help.) Yet together, they are intent on uncovering the ugly truth—even if it damns them.
