Publisher's Summary

Raised by a family of survivalists, FBI agent Mercy Kilpatrick can take on any challenge - even the hostile reception to her homecoming. But she's not the only one causing chaos in the rural community of Eagle's Nest, Oregon. At first believed to be teenage pranks, a series of fires takes a deadly turn with the murder of two sheriff's deputies. Now, along with Police Chief Truman Daly, Mercy is on the hunt for an arsonist turned killer.

Still shunned by her family and members of the community, Mercy must keep her ear close to the ground to pick up any leads. And it's not long before she hears rumors of the area's growing antigovernment militia movement. If the arsonist is among their ranks, Mercy is determined to smoke the culprit out. But when her investigation uncovers a shocking secret, will this hunt for a madman turn into her own trial by fire?

Entertaining

I like the characters and the story. The characters are not particularly complex. However the simplicity makes for an enjoyable, light read that sustained my interest. I'm looking forward to book 3 in the series.

Great series

I can't wait until January of 2018 for book #3 in this Mercy Kilpatrick series. Kendra Elliot does a great job of writing these books. And Teri Schnaubelt does an awesome narration. I would highly recommend this series.

MUCH BETTER THAN THE 1ST BOOK!

The first book was dull as crap! Hardly any action, too much talking, and the characters doing rediculously OBVIOUS stupid things!

I'm surprised I even gave the second book a chance after book 1!

Book 2 was WAY better. Way more action, better story line, everything! Really enjoyed it a lot more! Thank you!

P.S. The narrator for both books does an excellent job though!
I give her narration 5 stars, for both books! She's a great narrator! :D

Pro gun propaganda

Just read the NRA website and save yourself the credit. Total waste of time. Frightening that people think this way

Merciful Truth

Thank you for the 2nd book in this series. These are a great read. I had issues with the narrator in book one. With book two I'd have to take issue with the Audible editing as well. Twice, the narrator pronounced 'butte' as 'butt'. With mispronunciation of local names, I can understand an editor from outside the area not catching the error, however, butte is not specific to Oregon. A butte is a steep hill with a flat top.

A sheep in wolves clothing

Love this ladies stories . The dialogue flows constantly and the story lie is exciting and continuous with no padding. There's always that element of angst to highten the tension towards the climax of the book. Very enjoyable and highly recommended .
