Currently Shia Islam has many sects, and legend also has it that the current Imam is represented by an open and visible leader, or bavasaab. This story puts such a relationship between the current underground Imam and his visible representative into modern context. The Imam is a fictitious account of the events preceding the Twelfth Imam's rebirth and the life he lives afterwards.

Only an author of Harvey Havel's imagination and skill would dare write this second and highly controversial novel about an Islamic prophet. But more than controversial, Havel's novel delivers a breath-taking story of love, hope, tyranny, and betrayal. Set in the cities of Mecca, Lahore, Teheran, and New York, this epic novel explores humanity within the context of divine circumstance. This is an important book, and a must-read.From the Author:
Through the medium of schizophrenia, the Twelfth Imam attempts to establish his ideal view of the world by using his illness as a tool. He finds a way towards Allah that eschews reality but closely resembles it.
