Someone has stolen the Baby Jesus, swaddling clothes and all, from the public Nativity Scene in the pious town of Hanover, and the residents are outraged. Kathleen MacGuffin, the disgraced Guardian Angel of the Nativity, bares the shame of losing the Holy Infant, while her neighbor, Marilyn Marley, secretly schemes to be the next Guardian Angel. Stanley Dunmovin, teenaged nerd, genius, and gadget freak, has set up a video camera to record any further thefts. His crush, Lizzie Green, the only Jewish girl in mostly Methodist Hanover, vows to be the one to catch the thief just to spite the town. Suspects abound. Suspicions and jealousies begin to divide the townspeople. There are break-ups and break-ins. No one is any closer to finding the real thief, and even the police are perplexed. The poor Baby Jesus may just have to save Himself. Who Stole the Baby Jesus? is a Christmas mystery that parodies the prejudices, traditions, and politics of a small Midwestern town.

Cecil was born somewhere in the middle of the last century, but he has only come alive in the middle of the last year. One may be reborn as many times as one pleases. He has been many things from artist to computer geek, but throughout, he has always written. Rather than take up space with an imagined life, these pages are filled with his writing. When asked where his ideas come from, his answer is always the same. "From a childish sense of wonder. Watch a father holding his newborn baby. That wonder. Observe a child as she watches cartoons. That wonder. Look at the world through those eyes and you can write anything." Who Stole the Baby Jesus? is Cecil Evans' second novel. If you enjoy it, be sure to catch his first book, Bought the Farm.
