But her parents obsess about finding a cure for his Asperger's, and that obsession draws them all under the control of Pastor Andervender and his fringe church in Albuquerque. There she finds an unexpected friend in her struggle to protect her brother: John, the pastor's most beloved son, over whom a dangerous shadow looms.
Magical poisons. Magical spies. A tower of magic that hides in plain sight. All part of a brutal underworld that programmer Dorelai Trelton stumbles onto, and if she fails to quickly figure out how to escape the danger she's in, she'll soon be dead. A novel from Lynn Kilmore, author of Soul Cages and Tales from the Threshold.
