U.S. Marshal Casey Quinn is tasked with escorting a reporter to testify before a grand jury regarding a missing environmentalist. At first, the assignment seems routine.

Rebecca's Review
3.5 stars
" . . . .Casey was concerned that once he walked out the door, she might never see him again. And she wasn't ready to let that happen. Not yet."

U. S. Marshal Casey Sloane really doesn't have time to analyze her opinion about teaming with Deputy U. S. Marshal E. J. Queen again; their friendship having been severed when a relationship with a mutual friend went terribly wrong. Now they are tasked with delivering a witness to Washington, D. C. in order to testify before a grand jury; reporter Valerie Bennett's testimony regarding a senator's supposed ties to terrorism being crucial to the government's case.

From the very beginning, everything goes wrong about Valerie's transfer into the hands of the F. B. I. The Marshal's office in St. Louis is bombed leaving their supervisor incoherent and near death, transportation plans have to be hastily re-calibrated and their destination now remains unknown. E. J. and Casey are virtually flying blind into the face of an enemy whose tentacles appear to be everywhere. Honesty and apology have their place, but it's prayer that comes to the rescue.

Hang on to the edge of your couch, as you read this fast-paced plunge into the abyss of deep, dark abominations.

I received a copy of this book from the publisher. The opinions stated are entirely my own.

Rebecca is a graduate of Bryan College with a degree in Christian Education, and is currently serving at the First Associate Reformed Presbyterian Church in Gastonia, North Carolina as the Director of Children's Ministry. With nearly 28 years of experience in her field, she has had many opportunities to use her love of reading and writing in creative ways across the generations. A wife, mother of four "nearly" grown children, and grandmother to four beautiful grandchildren, Rebecca has been able to return to her love of reading and more recently reviewing, with a renewed passion for the "beauty of story".
