Arthur Bishop is an assassin with a unique talent for cleanly eliminating targets. It’s a job that requires professional perfection and he is the best in the business. But when Harry, his mentor and friend, is murdered, Bishop wants those responsible dead. After Harry’s son approaches him with the same vengeful goal, Bishop takes the impulsive student deep into his world and a deadly partnership is born. However, deceptions will surface, and those hired to fix problems soon become the problem.
Inspired by true events, this supernatural thriller follows a seminary student sent to study exorcism at the Vatican in spite of his own doubts about the controversial practice and even his own faith. Only when sent to apprentice with legendary Father Lucas, who has performed thousand of exorcisms, does his armor of skepticism begin to fall. Drawn into a troubling case that transcends even Father Lucas’s skill, the young seminarian glimpses a phenomenon science can’t explain or control.
