Baker & Taylor
After being released from prison, a crazed militia leader kidnaps his ex-wife and son and takes them to Texas, where his ex-wife must protect their son from his influence and his plan to blow up a government building

Blackwell North Amer
Wren Cameron is a survivor. She has survived a turbulent love affair with Jeremiah Hunter, the charismatic leader of a militia group. She has survived an FBI raid on the group's remote encampment, and seemingly endless days and nights as a fugitive, hiding from the law. Now, sixteen years later, her struggle to reinvent herself has borne the sweet fruit of a wonderful marriage and two beloved children. Wren is a happy woman.
But not for long. For the apocalypse has returned to her life: Jeremiah Hunter, fresh from prison, has succeeded where the federal government failed. He has found Wren and kidnapped her and her fifteen-year-old son Daniel, taking them to his new camp in the Southwest desert. His plan is one of monstrous destruction and coercion - getting Wren to help him bomb an office building in a major Texas city while holding Daniel's life hostage.
Drawing on such disturbing themes as the raging destructiveness of militia extremists and the alienation between a mother and child, Deanie Francis Mills has produced a thriller of seduction and death.
