When Adversity Becomes Insanity…
For Tori McMillan, widowed and unemployed at thirty-six, it seemed as though life couldn’t get much worse. But then she watches in horror as her best friend inexplicably walks into a crowd, kills four people, and disappears. When her friend’s young son, missing for seven years, is sighted at an encampment of white separatists, Tori searches for answers. Her quest takes her to a Yucatan jungle and a secret buried by pre-Columbian explorers, and to the White House, where the President’s closest advisor prepares to implement his own secret agenda for the nation. In a suspense-filled climax, Tori follows a trail of missing children to the Colorado mountains, taking on a bizarre and lethal cult, whose enemies are...Bound To Die.
Somehow Tori knew it was not over yet. She might easily have concluded that the unknowable gods had completed their work, turning her into a thirty-six-year-old widow, and then, as of the end of the week, an unemployed thirty-six-year-old widow. Yet she sensed, merely by looking around her, the truth of her grandfather's favorite saying.
The old man was always cheerful and matter-of-fact in maintaining that "…things always look darkest just before they turn completely black."
They all looked like strangers to her now, these people who milled around, beers in hand, squinting into the late-afternoon sunshine on the day of the carnage. Tori McMillan knew many of them, had even been friends with some of them. But now they seemed like clones, or impostors emerged from pods into a world she now barely recognized.
