Summary
"Sonora, 1766-69: Threatening clouds gather in Europe as political, commercial and clerical powers conspire to destroy the all-too-successful Jesuit order. In New Spain, José de Gálvez, King Carlos III's Inspector General, seeks evidence of Jesuit corruption. At Mission Ures in Sonora, the captain of a team of soldiers sent to inspect Jesuit Missionary Andrés Michel's books is murdered. The missionary, accused of murder, calls Ygnacio Pfefferkorn, SJ, to investigate. Ygnacio meets beautiful widow Beatriz Urrutia, seeks out a succession of suspects, nearly losing his life when a hostile Apache tribe threatens torture and death. King Carlos' order to expel all Jesuits from Spain and her colonies cuts short his search; missionary work ends as the Jesuits are marched across Mexico to end in Spanish prison"--Florenceweinberg.com
