A minister-turned-police detective must dig into the scriptures, ancient writings, as well as his own past in order to discover the suspect's identity and motives. It is a personal grudge match propelled by historic documents and modern technology as the pursuer and pursued engage in a tense, high-stakes cat-and-mouse game. Once he makes a vital connection, the detective is able to predict what The Balaam Surrogate will do next. But can he intervene before the scientist launches a final lethal attack?
