Ex-DEA agent Jesse Warden has seen enough of the inside of a solitary confinement cell to last him a lifetime.Or two lifetimes, which is the sentence he's serving after being convicted of a plan he was planning to commit, but never did. So when an old buddy shows up with a deal that could spring him from his hell behind bars, he's ready to listen.

To gain his freedom, Jesse must infiltrate a dangerous and reclusive religious cult that has been stockpiling weapons and eliminating those sent to investigate. From the moment he arrives in the Idaho mountain town where the cult is centered, Jesse finds every aspect of life dictated by the group's eerie, imposing leader. Pitted against not only the cult, but also the feds who sent him, Jesse feels control of his own life slipping away, and must make a final,desperate attempt to regain it -- or die trying.

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Blaine Morrow | 11/12/2013

    " Well-paced thriller, with a likable ex-cop/ex-con as the hero and a white supremacist cult leader as the villain. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Steven Slavick | 11/7/2013

    " If you've read one Stuart Woods book, you've seemingly read them all. Similar in pace and characters to other Woods books. Nothing great, but a good read. "

    " This one kept me reading. There were several subplots going on as is normal with Wood's books, but I keep them sorted out and loved the way it all wraps up together at the end. Another good read by Woods. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jessica | 3/26/2013

    " A riveting book. A fast paced spy book about a cult that really wasn't a cult, but built to hide an arms trade business. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Deenya | 11/28/2012

    " This book was written in 1994 and I just read it in 2012. Was surprised how well, 14 years later, it held up. Usually "pop" fiction has too many social references and dates itself. Anyhow, I couldn't put this book down even though some of the dialogue seemed too sugary. The story really moved. "
