Stella Hunter is an obsessive reader of all myths and legends. She and her long-time boyfriend, Carter, go to visit their old friend and priest at his church. There the journey begins when Carter sees an old Oriental couple pray, then leave the worship decades younger than when they walked in minutes before. Their story surrounds a bizarre and poorly chiseled granite statue delivered to the church. But is it just an ugly statue? They all too soon discover it is an emissary out of folklore legend, tempting and granting wishes, with an unfortunate trade-off for its victims.
The new world order is getting ready to rule the world. Racing into action it quickly becomes clear for the retired FBI contractor, Carter, and his gregarious partner, the mythology expert, Dr. Stella Hunter, that the past is not over for them, as unsolved mysteries become key in finding the truth about what happened in the Detroit cathedral.
