About the Book
Trapped in the body of boy detective extraordinaire Timmy Hightower, Jesus Christ is forced by his father to solve mysteries no mortal should ever solve. With the help of Timmy’s uncle, a fourth generation circus knife thrower/acquitted serial killer Leopold Franz, they search for answers and for a way home.
“Gloriously weird. Beautifully savage. J. Bradley’s stories are absolute marvels. He writes like a person riding a comet down from a brand new illustrated outer space. Pure wonder. Jesus Christ, Boy Detective is his most stunning work. Every page is rich with fireworks bursting up signaling a call to adventure.”
—Bud Smith, author of F250
