Jarvis is a New York City cop who understands that knowledge refutes faith, and although he isn’t the brightest bulb in the room and doesn’t have much to believe in, he knows God exists. Who else can he blame for his lifelong disappointments?

After stumbling across a major conspiracy in the NYPD and trying to escape the shadow of his father’s horrible deeds, Jarvis finds himself discovering God in a mirror. While trying to stop a small group of people with special abilities called “The Oculars,” Jarvis is faced with two decisions: retribution from his father’s past, or saving the life of an innocent child. Jarvis soon finds out The Oculars aren’t just a small group with small plans. He has stumbled onto something much larger than he could have ever imagined. The Oculars are fearsome and deadly -- but Jarvis’ real problems begin when he accidentally becomes one.

In an age when books, movies and even music lack originality, Quintin Coakley’s debut novel heralds the arrival of a unique and promising new voice. It’s a seductive, fast-paced sci-fi thriller -- the result of the author’s own “twisted interpretation” of man’s relationship with God.
