On the upside,a solicitous member of Joel's former congregation invites him into a scam that could yield some desperately needed cash, and soon the down-on-his-luck preacher is involved with a flock of charming con men, crooked lawyers, and conniving youth.
In a feat of bravura storytelling, Martin Clark ranges from the cross to the double cross, from Virginia to Las Vegas, from jail cells to trout streams, as he follows his Job-like hero through dubious choices and high-dollar insurance hustles to a redemption that no listener could possibly predict. Wildly imaginative, at times comic, at times profoundly sobering, and even more audacious than his wonderfully idiosyncratic debut, Plain Heathen Mischief is a spiritual revelation of the first order.

Joel is having a rough time, he's been accused of a crime he has never admitted to committing and he's had to spend 6 months in jail as a result.
Newly paroled he seeks the help of an old friend to make it to his sister's in Montana. The minute he steps out the prison gates, things snowball.
A funny, clever tale, with lots of twists; you find yourself really rooting for Joel and wishing him a happy ending.
