A lesson to the Catholic Church
An American novel based on the Catholic priest sex abuse scandal
Viewed from altitude, the meandering Atchafalaya waterways of Louisiana present themselves as a tangle of glassy fragments, unrevealing of the life-and-death dynamics hidden beneath their surface. Billy Ray Hawkins had not yet reached his fourteenth birthday and had never been at altitude, but he was well acquainted with the terrors lurking beneath the surfaces of many things. The Louisiana bayous, with their generally silent and lethal residents, represent only one category, but they would be sufficient and would satisfy his needs.
Taking several weeks to review the options available to him, and after assessing his own capabilities and a degree of flexible morality he was beginning to consider a valuable asset, Billy had come to a decision. The decision evolved swiftly into a plan, and then, at a slower and more deliberate pace, the details of the plan took shape. He refined and caressed each detail until it became part of his being. Now, after establishing all the many elements required, the day of execution had arrived.
