Creatures of the Covenant, Synopsis of the novel by J.S. Bradford


Creatures of the Covenant is a novel about the animal rights movement. The characters include Deacon, who, assisted by his girlfriend Clare and a burnt-out old hippie named Francis, sets up a sanctuary for animals in remote Utah. The sanctuary becomes known within the movement as the Furball Hotel.

 An aging film star named Summer Hayes arrives on the scene to make a documentary which he hopes will revive his career. Hayes is joined by a hip financial investment consultant named Cameron Bay who has committed to financing the documentary. Cameron’s true intent, however, is to set up a fund-raising scam and skim the proceeds.
To rejuvenate his leadership role in the animal rights movement, Deacon sets out to subvert the influence of the Institute for Dietary Freedom, a management conglomerate providing entrepreneurial assistance for fast food franchises worldwide, in the process adversely impacting consumers, and the environment, not to mention the animal world.
Deacon’s idealistic goals are betrayed by Cameron Bay, unwittingly assisted by Doctor Katrina, a former centerfold model who is a veterinarian for the sanctuary.
An explosion takes place at the Institute for Dietary Freedom where Deacon is an undercover management trainee. The Institute tries to convince the authorities that the bomb was triggered by Deacon; but the bomb was actually planted by the Director of Security for the Institute, Major Derek DeBeers, in order to create a public backlash against the animal rights movement.
The bombing incident brings in Agent Eugene Greylord of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, ultimately setting up an armed confrontation at the Furball Hotel. Deacon returns to the scene (he survived the bombing) to protect the animals of the sanctuary. During the confrontation, Cameron Bay is killed in a helicopter crash and Major Derek DeBeers is severely injured. The siege is captured on film by Summer Hayes who eventually receives an Oscar for his cutting-edge documentary, The Ballad of the Furball Hotel. Deacon is granted immunity for prior misdemeanor violations and is reunited with Clare. Together they turn the Furball Hotel into a base of operations on behalf of the animal rights movement.
