Harker uncovers a cult whose members believe in peace, love, understanding, and torture
Rudolph Franklin thinks his biggest problem is reelection. A battle with a fellow senator about military spending is getting ugly, and if he can’t scrap out a victory, his career will be dead in the water. He calls Harker, a crack investigative reporter, to leak a story for him. Franklin thinks his problems are political - until his daughter disappears.
In Barbarann’s bedroom, Harker finds pamphlets for the Children’s Crusade, a hippy-dippy cult best known for selling buttons and hard candy on street corners. But Harker learns about the crusade’s darker side - the enforcers charged with keeping members in line, and keeping the press from asking questions. His first warning is a dead cat, hung from the ceiling of his hotel room, paw sliced off. If he crosses the Crusade again, the next paw they take will be his own.
