Government drama, personal anxiety and shame, along with a setting of tension combine to make the reader hold tightly to the pages of the book. The Mexicali border is always a dangerous place, but when a California judge is reintroduced to a past sin, that turmoil becomes even greater. Explosives are set in place. When detonated, they will cause death and will initiate a ripple effect of terrorism. This can be stopped, but only if Judge Lamport is willing to expose his past, risk his present, and forfeit his future. What can and will Judge Lamport do to save the people he loves, and how far will the Lord call him to go? True sacrifice may mean placing his life on the line for people he has never met. A looming enemy remains ever so close to the judge as he aspires to do the Lord’s will in such a chaotic circumstance. This thriller leaves readers yearning for more from this first time author who hones the ability to combine the conflicts of our world with the spiritual fight we have within ourselves every day.

Christian Impact

Everyone has that one sin in life he or she wants to hide. It gets pushed far away where no one will find it. When this is done, we forget that with sin comes consequences. In any situation, God allows for learning to come from that sin through the process of fixing the problem. God will not make it easy, yet his plan is forever good. This novel shows such a process in action.
