FBI Agent Mercy Kilpatrick has been pegged to investigate a series of murders in Eagle's Nest, Oregon. This is her home town, where her parents and siblings still live ... although she hasn't seen or talked to any of them in 15 years, when she was forced to leave and told to never return.
Someone is killing survivalists in their homes and stealing their many weapons. Could this be a possible act of domestic terrorism? But the broken mirrors in each of their homes have been shattered, bringing to ...more
A community of doomsday preppers, conspiracy theorists, and evangelical patriarchists near Bend, Oregon? Not for me! A mystery/thriller/romantic suspense novel set in such a location? Yes, please!
Mercy is a compelling character and I love her romantic interest, Truman Daly. Though, I would've thought there would've been more killings/attacks in such a community. (Especially, as soon as FBI agents came to town!)
I will definitely read more. I want to see more of Mercy, Truman, and Mercy's family. ...more
This is my first book by this author. This is the first book in the Mercy Kilpatrick Series. It was so good, it kept me intrigued from the beginning to the end. I have been wanting to read this author for some time now and was so excited when I got this chance.

An enjoyable start to a new series for me. Mercy is an FBI agent out of Portland Oregon. She’s sent to investigate a series of murders of preppers (survivalists) in Eagles Nest, a town where she grew up before leaving her family at age 18, never to return. Mercy’s family were also preppers. She’s a tough gal. She might not be in communication with her family, but their philosophy still colors her beliefs.
This one has everything I love - a decent plot with no improbably turns, good well develope ...more
