A Priest A Brothel and the Fox

Charismatic entrepreneur Jack Stern loves nothing more than adventure tinged with mischief. On a journey to inspect his newly acquired business in Newburn, Jack chances upon a disillusioned priest, Fr Brendan O’Reilly, at a roadside cafe.

Over dinner and drinks, Jack tricks Brendan into swapping identities. But when Brendan arrives in Newburn, he discovers the business he must run is a brothel! Meanwhile, Jack preaches radical theology in the inner sanctums of the Catholic Church.

Chaos ensues when the ghost of a murdered priest reveals the Church’s involvement in criminal black market activities. When Brendan and Jack investigate, they are pursued by an array of assassins, including an ancient demonic being.

Together the silver fox and the priest are enmeshed in an action-packed cat and mouse game until the final, public showdown at St Pious Church.
