Joe Panther believes that he is Jesus Christ - around for two thousand years, still thirty-three and pissed-off as hell. When he wakes in an alleyway next to Gina Compton's dead body he becomes the prime suspect in a murder investigation. To save himself, Joe must outplay the draconian laws of a corrupt future society, survive a dangerous cult leader, appease the dead girl’s jilted lover and uncover who the real killer is.
