"Crisp, innovative,and intelligent. Should be at the top of your reading list." -- Larry Cox, book critic, King Features syndicate

A fencing tournament turns deadly. Can three young fencers thwart a plan to bring America to its knees?

Kevin, Rachel, and Ben are young fencers eager to compete in an upcoming tournament at Nellis Air Force Base. But when they arrive, they become unwilling pawns in a twisted plan to steal the ultimate weapon. A plan that somehow revolves around the tournament.

Now, battling for their very survival, they must find a way to stop the two brilliant arms dealers behind it all. But the arms dealers hold all the cards. And far more is at stake than just their lives . . .

The Devil's Sword is a gripping thriller that is sure to be enjoyed by fencers, non-fencers, kids, and adults alike.
