Overview

Just returned to their mountaintop hideaway in the wake of their latest successful mission, the seven fearless friends have barely had time to enjoy a celebratory dinner with their mentor, Charles Martin, when they’re embroiled in a new adventure.
In the middle of the night, the Sisters are awakened by an alarm bell. Suspecting intruders, they run to the compound, only to see Myra and Charles rushing towards a helicopter. Within seconds, the two have flown away, with no explanation besides a mysterious note from Charles: I’ve had an unexpected personal emergency. I don’t know when or if I will return.
Still reeling from this turn of events, the Sisters receive an urgent call from retired justice Pearl Barnes, who's just rescued fourteen pregnant teenagers who belong to a highly secretive polygamy sect.
Now, with Charles and Myra missing, the remaining members of the Sisterhood must rally together to save the girls. This time, the Sisters are doing it by themselves – and everything is on the line…

Meet the Author

Fern Michaels
FERN MICHAELS is the USA Today and New York Times bestselling author of the Sisterhood series, Mr. and Miss Anonymous, Up Close and Personal, and dozens of other novels and novellas. There are over seventy million copies of her books in print. Fern Michaels has built and funded several large day-care centers in her hometown, and is apassionate animal lover who has outfitted police dogs across the country with special bulletproof vests. She shares her home in South Carolina with her four dogs and a resident ghost named Mary Margaret.

Biography

Born Mary Ruth Kuczkir in Hastings, Pennsylvania, Fern Michaels was married and the mother of five before she embarked on her long, successful writing career – a career that began with something midway between a challenge and a command. When her youngest child went off to kindergarten, Michaels's husband imperiously ordered her (in just so many words) to get off her ass and get a job. Long years in the domestic trenches had left her short on marketable skills, so she decided trade off her lifelong love of reading and write a book. Just like that. The domineering, unsupportive husband is history. And Michaels has gone on to pen bestselling romance after bestselling romance. Just like that..

With typical modesty, Michaels does not claim to be a great writer; however, she admits proudly to being a born storyteller. Her bulging bookshelf proves she is all over the map, producing with equal facility hot historicals, lighthearted contemporary capers, adrenaline-laced thrillers, and heartwarming tales of family and friendship. She is especially adept at writing stories about women who prevail in hard times – a reflection, perhaps, of her own struggles in her marriage and early career.

Raised to believe that the fortunate in life have an obligation to give back, Michaels devotes a lot of time to philanthropic concerns. She has established a foundation that grants four-year scholarships to needy students and has set up pre-schools and daycare centers for single mothers. She is also an avid animal lover and has been known to own as many as five dogs at a time.

In 1993, Michaels picked up stakes and moved from her home in New Jersey to a 300-year-old plantation house in Charleston, South Carolina. She and the dogs share the house amicably with a friendly ghost whom Fern has dubbed Mary Margaret. In addition to stopping clocks and moving pillows from room to room, Mary Margaret has been known to occasionally leave flowers on Michaels's nightstand!

Good To Know

Michaels confesses in our interview: "I'm a junk food junkie and a chocoholic. My desk drawers have more junk food in them than paper and pens. I chomp and chew all day long. At night I get up and eat Marshmallow Fluff right out of the jar. In between eating, I write."

Her first "sort of, kind of job" was in market research. Michaels recounts the gig's low-point in our interview: "I had a partner and we were testing a new pressurized drain cleaner. All you had to do was put this can in the drain, squeeze and supposedly the drain would open right up. It did, all right.

"The whole wall collapsed, and stuff that was in there for a hundred years flew everywhere. The lady didn't tell us the drain backed up to her kitchen drain and disposal. The company didn't care that we smelled like a sewer or that our clothes were ruined. The lady got a new bathroom, and we both got fired."

Michaels reveals some of her sources of inspiration: "Inspiration comes from everywhere. The title for Finders Keepers came from a cartoon with two chipmunks that my grandson was watching. I had a title but no story. I finally came up with one to fit that wonderful title.

"Names for characters sometime come from television. I had a character named Metaxis which is odd to begin with. There is a news anchor on T.V. who has that same last name. Sometimes it will just be a word someone says in passing, something I read or saw. There's no rhyme or reason to it. It's almost like, okay, I need something here, stay alert and it will happen."

    Sisterhood #13

    I have become obcessed with reading all the "Sisterhood" books. Got started somewhere in the middle of the series and then went back to the beginning and now wait impatiently for each new one to be published. The story line is very catching and the details of the characters are great.

    In "Under the Radar" the story line and the characters have matured and the ending, of course, leaves an opening for the next book. Fern Michaels tells just enough about the characters previous exploits to get your interest and then leads you into the story. Highly recommend this book.

    Not worth the money

    Did not enjoy! Had so many characters i could not keep up with who was who. I wondered if this book was a followup to another book. It kept refering to the past of characters.

    Undrer the Radar

    Under the Radar shows that women can adapt to mmost situtatioss if they stick together. Rational thinking is critical to any great plot. The sisters jumped in with both feet and solved their problems and take care of busines. Adding many plot twists keep it worth reading the next installment. Even though its a story I feel like I,m part of everything. I can see the leaves falling, feel the cold and the hard work of snoe shoveling etc. Fern Michaels bring life to her novel and makes you feel you are part of it all, THANKS FERN!!!!

    Go Sisterhood Girls

    Fern Michaels has done it again. This book was better than the last one -Under the Radar. I just love the characters and how they are willing to stand up for justice to those that really deserve it. As more and more people become involved with each saga there is more tension between everyone. I did feel very sad that Charles was not part of this book but it shows that the girls can pull anything off that they put their minds to. I hope in the next series that Myra and Charles are reunited as they were both so happy. This is a good book to sit down and relax to over a weekend and I highly recommend this book. But, be sure you read the other 12 series to get a full picture of how everyone comes into play in each saga.

    fresh Sisterhood thriller

    After the success of their FINAL JUSTICE mission, the seven Sisterhood members return to their mountaintop retreat looking forward to some R&R. One hour later before anyone can fully settle back, the alarm rings. The women react instantly only to their shock mentor Charles and Myra leave together by copter. He leaves behind an enigmatic note for the team.

    Almost immediately after the helicopter lifts off, retired judge Pearl Barnes needs their help. She has rescued fourteen pregnant teens from a polygamous sect and needs the Sisterhood to finish their trip to safety. The teammates set forth as they fully support Pearl's Underground Railroad that rescues abused females, but also fear their first project sans Charles.

    By removing the mentor for most of the story line, Fern Michaels refreshes her Sisterhood saga as they are on their own for the first time after a dozen previous adventures with Charles available. The Story line is fast-paced from the moment that Pearl calls for their help and never slows down as they try to keep the teens safe. With echoes of the Texas raid last year, fans of the saga will appreciate Fern Michaels' latest twist.
