The newest installment in the Devon MacDonald mystery series features the daring private investigator pitted against a fanatical ring with sinister intentions.

When teenager Monica Hammond fears that her sixteen-year-old sister, Kerry, may have died in the firebombing of an abortion clinic, she enlists the aid of Twin Cities P.I. Devon MacDonald. Devon suspects that Kerry may still be alive—and that her disappearance may be linked to the mysterious activities of a local anti-abortion group. Her suspicions are strengthened when yet another dead body turns up. But not until this novel’s fiery climax does Devon discover the insidious plot behind the disappearance of so many pregnant teens from their small fundamentalist town.

With a deft hand, Nancy Baker Jacobs paints a disturbing picture of righteousness warped by greed.
