The closer you get to the truth, the more dangerous it gets.
FBI Agent Tom Hunter has been chasing down leads to find the brutal cult that damaged some of his closest friends. They managed to escape to tell their stories, but Eden's location has always remained a mystery.
Liza Barkley is struggling with her feelings for Tom and wonders if their friendship can survive the secrets they've kept from one another. But they may be forced to confront the truth when a chance to help the investigation puts Liza directly in the line of fire.
When the perpetrator of an attempted sniper attack on Liza and her friends is discovered to be one of the cult's leaders, DJ Belmont, it becomes clear that he is out to get revenge on the victims who escaped Eden's clutches.
But there is one person who has always had control over DJ, and who no one outside of Eden has ever glimpsed: cult leader Pastor. When a serious injury forces Pastor to seek help outside the confines of the Eden, Tom and his team finally have a chance to bring the cult down.
But DJ Belmont has his own plan, and is not going to stop until he gets what he wants...
Rose sends out her Sacramento trilogy (after Say No More) with an irresistible, heart-pounding thrill ride. FBI Special Agent Tom Hunter is determined to find and shut down Eden, the corrupt, violent, and well-funded religious cult that victimized his friends Gideon Reynolds and Mercy Callahan as children. Now the cult is holding pregnant teenager Hayley Gibbs and her 12-year-old brother, Graham, hostage at their compound in northern California, though no one knows where. Combat medic Liza Barkley, Tom's best friend, is all-in on the rescue mission. Ignoring Tom's wish that she stay safe, she goes undercover as a nursing assistant in a private hospital where Eden's leader, the Pastor, is recovering with his murderous second-in-command, DJ Belmont. As DJ racks up a body count, both Tom and Liza are thrown in jeopardy, and their friendship evolves into love as they fight for their lives. The twisty plot will keep readers on the edges of their seats as they're led through a dizzying maze of dangerous situations and even more dangerous villains. Rose has a gift for making readers care deeply about her characters, and she certainly doesn't disappoint here; Tom and Liza will win readers' hearts and Hayley steals every scene she's in. This is a knockout. Agent: Robin Rue, Writers House. \n
