In the fast-paced novel Deliver Us from Evil, a family's peaceful mountain existence is threatened by a series of events that no one could have predicted.
The Carson family lives in the shelter of God's Rocky Mountains in Colorado, far from the death and destruction of the ongoing Second World War. Theirs is a peaceful existence, untroubled and serene. Their home is an outdoorsman's paradise, where they enjoy hunting, fishing, ranching, and horseback riding. But their blessed seclusion comes to an abrupt end with the escape of a dozen desperate Nazi POWs from nearby Camp Trinidad.
Widower Jack Carson, along with his teenage sons, Wade and Josh, and daughter, Cassie, bear the full brunt of Colonel Helmut Von Toth's wrath. Murder and mayhem explode as Von Toth and his men swarm the Carson Ranch in search of weapons, horses, guides, and hostages before embarking on their desperate life-and-death run for the Mexican border.
No mercy is granted to those unfortunate enough to cross paths with the Nazis, and the Carsons must use every ounce of skill and daring they possess to outlast the villains. One of the German POWs, a teenager of strong morals and unbendable character, unexpectedly decides to help the family.
Author Dan Reed draws upon his own knowledge of World War II to create a fascinating and suspenseful tale of one family's fight to defend both themselves and their way of life.
