Summary
"Wheatfield, Minnesota, is a metropolis of six hundred souls and change for which the word "moribund" might have been invented. Nothing ever happened there and nothing ever would—until the mayor of sorts (campaign slogan: "I'll Do What I Can") and a buddy come up with a scheme to put Wheatfield on the map. They'd heard of a place where a floating image of the Virgin Mary had turned the whole town into a shrine, attracting thousands of pilgrims. And all those pilgrims needed food, shelter, all kinds of crazy things, right? They'd all get rich! What could go wrong? Then the shootings begin. And as they--and Virgil Flowers--are about to discover, that's only the beginning of their troubles." --page [2] of cover
