It was published in 1992,[2] and made the New York Times bestseller list.[3] The novel is set in New Orleans and revolves around the murder of a televangelist; the suspects include the female founder of the "French Silk" mail order catalog whom the preacher had targeted as sinful.[4]

It was also made into a 1994 TV movie starring Susan Lucci and R. Lee Ermey.

The book was the first of Brown's novels to be released in hardcover, and the first to be made into a movie.[5] Its first print run was 150,000 copies.[6]
