When Casey Carl’s midnight exorcism becomes a rape charge and police find kiddie porn on his computer, the small-time LA pastor and homeless youth minister sees his world disintegrate. LA Times reporter Haley Woodhouse come to his side, and they search the city’s satanic scene for answers, including why a hit-and-run driver murdered Carl’s wife two years earlier. But does the pretty reporter really care or is she exploiting Carl’s scandalous new fame? Defrocked, disgraced and destitute, he faces prison and a plot to murder him. Yet, the fallen pastor fears most an actual fall; returning to his former love, heroin, or finding a new lover in Haley. His home shakes, reptiles attack, and when Carl’s virgin, teenage daughter shows up to help, the satanic plot becomes personal. The pastor and reporter battle the Cult of Lam, and must risk their lives to foil a massive human sacrifice, something Satanists believe will return the extraterrestrial fallen angel Watchers and dawn the New Age.
