Father Al Bernardi, S.J., has a problem. He gave sanctuary to the one man all the world wants to see—an alien from Numos.
The aliens wanted him back because he alone can reveal the location of their homeworld and the secret of faster-than-light travel.
The UN is all for giving him back to prevent a retaliatory alien attack.
The world at large wants peace, at any cost.
Father Bernardi merely wants to save a life… so he calls his friend at the Vatican.
And all hell breaks loose!
