Publisher's Summary

In Boston, a young woman finds herself pregnant - even though she is still a virgin. In Ireland, another young woman discovers she is in the same impossible condition. And in cities all around the world, civic authorities are overwhelmed by epidemics, droughts, famines, floods, and worse. It feels like a sign that something awful is coming.Anne Fitzgerald, a former nun turned private investigator, is hired by the Archdiocese of Boston to investigate the immaculate conceptions. Even as she comes to care and trust the young women, she realizes that both are in great danger. Terrifying forces of good and evil are gathering. Stepping into uncharted territory where the unknown is just the beginning, Anne must discover the truth - to save the young women, to save herself, and to protect the future of all mankind.

what a bizarre story

I didn't read the book description before I listened to this one. I just went on the "I like James Patterson's books.". This one was bizarre from the get-go and just got stranger as things went along. There were bits in the story where you got pulled in, but the story was just too farfetched and I kept thinking this is utter nonsense. and in the end, it just got worse. I hate to not finish a book, but I wish I had stopped long before the end of this one.

suspense and new look at virgin births

great book - totally absorbed all the way through - you have to like the topic but if you do it delivers
