Raised in a Central Oregon cabin built by her prepper father, Mercy Kilpatrick was forced out of her tight community after high school. She left without looking back. Today, murders in the prepper world have driven small town police chief Truman Daly to ask the FBI for help, and FBI Special Agent Mercy Kilpatrick returns to the tiny town of Eagles Nest to face the anti-government family she abandoned fifteen years ago. After readers begged for more Mercy Kilpatrick, Kendra continued their story in IN THE PINES and AT THE RIVER.
“Elliot is a master of romantic suspense, and her latest sets a rural community of preppers (people preparing for disaster) in the sights of a killer. Elliot expertly interweaves the current murders with the damage that past crimes have done to Mercy and Truman’s souls, and she lays out convincing tracks to a number of possible culprits in Eagle’s Nest. Fascinating details about prepper lifestyle give extra flavor to this mystery, adding to its memorability.” —Adrian Liang, Amazon Book Review
