Daniel Hartman, the pastor of the Glory Community Church, was introduced in the first novel in this series. In Glory Be! Reverend Hartman was dealing with division within the church over the use of a $600,000 bequest. The pastor can be forgiven if he believes that money is the root of all evil because now, in Gone to Glory, he is contending with the fallout from bad investments that caused that $600,000–and more–to evaporate. The church financial secretary was conned into risky investments by Quentin Fisher, a man who posed as a Christian financial adviser. Fisher is now dead, and the church is suing the company he worked for.
McKinley Investments is a legitimate company, with insurance to handle suits such as this. Lori Dorsett, the undercover investigator who the insurance company sends to town, expects that she will quickly find the information she needs to derail the church’s case. Lori sidles up to Reverend Hartman, hoping that by playing him she can get the inside scoop on the church’s plans. That’s when things get complicated.
This is the second volume in the Benrey’s Glory, North Carolina series.
