Ezekiel is foremost a dark comedy with humorous interactions among the richly developed, decidedly peculiar characters. The main plot??s facade is the group??s bumbling investigation into a suspected conspiracy to influence the U.S. presidential election by an unlikely and diverse alliance. The structural story line is an ominous yet discreet paranormal plot questioning the purpose and nature of mankind??s existence. Do we really exist or is our world just some highly evolved alien civilization??s advanced version of X-Box? (Think Koontz meets Hiaasen with a pinch of a debauched Dan Brown.) The book is written as a first person account of, Zeke, a mentally unbalanced and functioning alcoholic. With the encouragement of a mysterious vagrant (Hobo), Zeke reluctantly begins a halfhearted and chaotic investigation into the suspected conspiracy that holds possible unintended apocalyptic consequences.
Hobo is a small, freakish looking man preferring pinched women??s clothing (“…from unattended beach towels”). Hobo is wildly eccentric and places Zeke and his crew into a series of unlikely but amusing scenes. Ultimately, the story line suggests Hobo may be the mythical Incan creator God Viracocha. According to the Incan myth, Viracocha returns to our world disguised as a vagrant in times of severe turmoil. Hobo recognizes Zeke??s unusual dreams as a unique ability to view glimpses into parallel worlds at different points in time.
Zeke??s wife Rose is a much younger, beautiful lawyer for an international corporation. Sam is the new neighbor and is a conservative family man. Sam and Rose serve as stable platforms to reflect the lunacy that is Zeke and Hobo. Sarah, Zeke??s cousin, is an overzealous C.O.P “observe and report” law officer with a brother on death row. She is determined to make her mark on law enforcement and sees the investigation as a pathway to arrive at her desired destination. Ruth, Zeke??s prodigal sister, is kidnapped by Hobo from a Mexican brothel. She is an exotic beauty without the benefit of normal boundaries. Zeke??s mother??s eleven eccentric siblings also make an appearance featuring Frank. He is a Vietnam Vet, married to a Puerto Rican lesbian with a penchant for mowing his yard dressed in combat boots and little else.
Ezekiel is a unique and quirky blend of religion, conservative fiscal politics, mythology and science fiction. Ezekiel will make the reader laugh, cry, think and shout.
