A young pilot, Carmody, crashes in the middle of China. He's rescued by a warlord (aka bandit), and forced to be his second in command. After some time the protagonist manages to escape disguised as a priest. When he arrives at a mission, where he had hoped to end the masquerade, the people address him as a priest from the very beginning. Since he has started out acting as a clergyman, he cannot very well drop the pretence later on, and is forced to be Gods left hand. The story tells of the internal changes of the ex-bandit, ex-pilot working and living as a priest, rediscovering the beliefs of his childhood. And then the warlord arrives to reclaim his man. It's a wonderful composed story, with a high pace, tension, old fashioned adventure, but also introspection, humor, tenderness, and philosophy about the nature of man
