    "Underground Religious Groups"

    Author Darcia Helle does another brilliant job in writing and presenting an intense story of a software designer by day and a professional killer for hire at night.

    Michael Sykora is known as the Ghost and is a part-time hit man whose specialty is eliminating organized criminals, child molesters, and rapist and confronted with the secret world of illegal religious groups.

    The story captures the reader's attention and is able to envision every scene as if you were with the characters and with Michael Sykora moving closer exposing the underground world of organized crime religious groups and youth slavery. Your heart begins to beat faster as he makes eye to eye contact with criminals and uncovers a secret world where salvation and gods words are used to incite fear in a group of church believers.

    The book is a thriller with a suspense story. Darcia Helle expertise and writing style, holds everyone's attention, while the plot takes you along an incredible unimaginable journey in discovering today's America's homeless, runaway teenage youth and of organized illegal underground religious church groups.

    A "Must Read" for anyone, wanting a better understanding of a professional killer's views and of his decision making and struggles facing in today's society of Americas most wanted hard organized-criminals, illegal underground religious church groups in the United States.

    I thank, Darcia Helle for sharing this incredible story. I look forward to her next novel.
