"But religious miracles only take place in Spanish churches and Italian museums...don't they?" When an inexplicable event happens in the crumbling apartment of a confused, hungover, lovesick, English university dropout, he wants to know why it happened to him of all people, Mister Average. To find out, he enlists the help of two of his quirky buddies, one of whom wants to make a huge pile of cash from the event, and the other who just wants something to do besides watching endless soap operas. Soon they are riding high on the frantic media bandwagon generated by "Miraclemania" and things begin to go horribly wrong. Then they discover that other unsavory people want to get their dishonest hands on their "Miracle," and will stop at nothing to get it. In order to retain their exclusive ownership of their discovery, the three young men get snagged by a series of farcical chases, confrontations, and revelations that make them question their sanity. The plot is carried by a broad collection of truly weird characters, crooked politicians, and determined foriegn gangsters. Our baffled, if innocent heroes are faced with violent attacks, culture clashes, torrid love affairs, overbearing politicians, illegal drug dealing, religious cons, and near-death hangovers. Lurching from the serious to the bizarre, via misery, doubt, and laughter, this first book of the Seven Deadly Sins series has more pratfalls than the Marx Brothers.
