by Michael L. Ricciardi and John D. Nugent

LOUIS, the Entry Angel of Heaven,

befriends CHRISTOPHER, a lawyer,

who is recently arrived at the Pearly Gates.

Secretly, Louis guides Christopher,

on a tour of the areas in Eternity,

including some of the restricted areas. 


But Louis and Christopher soon find out,

there are no secrets in Heaven.

Louis is found out and arrested. 


Now, in the case of his Afterlife, Christopher must defend Louis, in a criminal proceeding, which gives new meaning to the words, "Show Trial."
