Friar Rush is known today from legends recounted in 15th Century verse. Those legends identified him as an incarnation of the Devil who turned up at monasteries and priories in disguise to taunt and tempt men and women of the cloth.

Learn more through the eyes of reporter Jake McGlover.
When his old friend from seminary is done in under mysterious circumstances in the New Orleans French Quarter, McGlover undertakes an investigation of his own and finds himself on the trail of the devilish trickster. He soon learns Friar Rush has a new plan to wreak unholy havoc.

It’s a battle against a twisted imagination with a sinister sense of humor that could destroy a city and much more.
