Three survivors could not escape their deadly fate. Only one remains...

Two decades ago, one adult and three children miraculously escaped a deadly New Mexico cult. The aftermath shocked the nation. But now it appears that none of them will escape...
Someone is ushering the last of the cult's 'chosen' disciples into the next world. He has claimed three of his final victims...only one remains.

Kelly Stone--a survivor of the Butler Divinity Mission--grew up safely in the arms of an adoptive family, her identity concealed from public record. Now the owner of a New Hampshire inn and the single mother of a three-year-old daughter, Kelly is almost content with her life. But the past is closing in on her, and this time there is nowhere to run.

Ian Campbell--a determined cop with personal ties to the New Mexico tragedy--will risk everything to keep Kelly alive. But it all comes down to a daring game of courage and confrontation to finally decide the fate of the fourth victim . . .

In New Mexico, young police officer Ian Campbell and other cops work the fatal car accident in which four people survive. Since the vehicle came from the Butler Divinity Mission, Ian and a veteran cop drive there to inform Reverend Michael Butler about the accident. However, no dogs or people are anywhere in what seems like a ghost town until they enter the chapel. They find a mass of dead people including Ian¿s newlywed wife social worker Anne, who worked closely with Reverend Michael...................................... Twenty-two years later, Ian takes a room in New Hampshire¿s Tranquillity Inn owned and managed by Kelly Stone, one of the four survivors of the Butler massacre. Ian fears for Kelly¿s life, as an unknown assailant is completing the mission of Reverend Butler by killing the survivors. Ian plans to insure this widow with a brilliant three-year-old daughter Jade lives. As he and Kelly fall in love, neither realizes that the serpent has entered Eden and will use Jade if necessary to complete the quest that includes Butler¿s daughter Luna-K better known to Ian as his beloved Kelly............................. FOURTH VICTIM is an exhilarating romantic suspense that starts off with horrific Jones like suicides and murders, slows down to enable a relationship to form between the lead duo, and then goes full speed until the climatic confrontation. Ian is a terrific champion seeking revenge for the murder of his beloved Anne and feeling guilty as he falls in love again. Kelly is a fascinating protagonist hiding her tainted ancestry to protect Jade. Fans of taut thrillers will want to read Ian¿s efforts to keep the two females who have reawakened long thought comatose feelings safe..................................................
