Mary Willis Walker, the Edgar Award–winning author of The Red Scream, returns to the bestseller list with this relentlessly heart-wrenching story of kidnapping, religious fanaticism, and courage.
When cult leader Samuel Mordecai orders his followers to hijack a bus load of children, it becomes part of his final preparation for the battle of Armageddon. Rescuing the eleven young children from their captors seems impossible until Texas magazine reporter Molly Cates—the only journalist to interview the reclusive Mordecai—begins to engage him in a harrowing and intense psychological battle.
Filled with characters who embody desperation, intolerance, unwavering heroism, and hope, Under the Beetle’s Cellar is a spellbinding modern morality tale. Narrator C. J. Critt’s sublime pacing and accent changes perfectly compliment Walker’s engrossing novel.
