His work colleagues know Jacob Greatorex as a road sweeper with a violent temper and a penchant for taking bits of rubbish home with him. On a works outing to Lourdes they witness him speaking languages he cannot have learnt and holding a crowd of people spell bound. He is building a cathedral in his front room but doesn’t know why and when he is asleep he experiences flashbacks to the lives of the apostles in the years after the crucifixion.
Two strangers try to harness his unusual abilities for their own ends. Jude Plater wants him to breathe life into her faltering PhD on parapsychology, and Pablo Vasquez sees a way of using him to halt the seemingly unstoppable progress of a corrupt bishop to the highest levels of the Catholic Church in Spain.
Together they lead him on a journey to the ancient cathedral of Santiago de Compostela but as they get nearer, it becomes clear Jacob has his own reasons for being there and there is nothing his fellow travellers can do to stop him.
