Martin Foley, a cynical NYPD cop, investigates a murder in East Harlem. When he arrives, he finds no shooter, no victim. There are blood stains on the floor and thirty witnesses, who all agree on what happened: The killer shot the victim six times in the chest, then ran. A stranger stepped out the crowd, put his hands on the dead man's face. Like Lazarus, the dead man came back to life. The witnesses are convinced the stranger is an Angel of God.
