The Cultist: A Novel by Mark Boss

Chapter 1

New Mexico, USA

Day 1


As his father drove them deep into the wilderness, Tyler Burroughs realized he was going to die.

The caravan of cars crept through the night, a glowing chain of headlights and taillights. Tyler read the street signs as they left Silver City and rolled down a two-lane road into the vast Gila National Forest.

The boy sat on his hands in the back seat. His thrift store navy blue sport coat was too tight, and the sleeves ended well above his wrists. Up front, his mother scanned radio stations for a weather report.

"If it clouds over, we won't be able to spot the ship," she said.

Mr. Burroughs leaned over the wheel and looked up. "Don't worry, honey. It's fine."
