On September 21st 2012 Vitali Nevski and Artyom Novichonok discover the comet ISON just beyond Jupiter’s orbit. Heralded as the comet of the century all eyes are upon ISON as it blazes a trail through our solar system – and it’s not only humans who are spellbound by its beauty. Having entrusted the training of the newly appointed Karma to Sister Sarah Arellano, God can now focus on much more important things – such as the newly discovered comet that conceals an ancient secret. But the human race is no longer simple and neither is the newly appointed Karma. As an ex-con with a troubled past the new Karma is more than a handful for Sister Sarah. His own troubled history as well as the complexity of his first three cases causes him to question the validity of the entire set up. What right does he have as Karma to kill someone for killing someone? And why does God allow bad things to befall good people when he has the power to prevent it? If God wasn’t so engrossed in trying to stop China and the US from laying claim to HIS comet, he might have put those issues to rest. But time and unforeseen occurrence befall us all…even God. Life in the Hebrides in the year 1844 is as harsh as it is beautiful.
