Jericho was a crooked ISA agent who was involved with the Reverand Saul Taylor. The two of them had burned many black churches in the south and also fenced stolen goods through Saul's traveling revival camp.
Jericho learned that the ISA was onto him, and he even kidnapped his old friend Shane Donovan and staged his death in an explosion. Shane was really alive but was being held hostage by Jericho. Steve Johnson and Gail Carson were sent in to find Shane and nail Jericho. Jericho panicked and shot Saul Taylor incase he thought about talking. Later Shane escaped and he and Jericho duked it out on a clifftop, and when a bomb went off on the mountain they were on Shane and Jericho fell over the clifftop, both were thought dead.
