Hardcover Verified Purchase I consider myself a spiritual seeker, but all too often I get wrapped up in the demands of our everyday 'Western' existence. After watching a TV show that features an angelic character, I felt an urge to read about angels further. This book is a great place to start.

Mercy Kilpartrick is an FBI agent who has a hidden cabin in the woods and is a secret prepper. On the way back from a late night visit to her cabin she almost runs over a child desperately seeking help for her dying grandmother.
They have been ostracized for generations, unless of course someone needs their help. Mercy has been told in no uncertain terms that she is a witness, nothing else. Yeah, like she is going to listen, especially since a judge in Portland, OR has just been found murdered. The Judge has slash marks in the same pattern as Olivia Sabin.
He also has family connections to the area. Since he is a federal judge, this brings the FBI into the picture. Mercy, along with her lover, Police Chief Truman Daly inserts themselves into the investigation of the two connected murders.
Mercy has her own personal connections to some of the suspects. Mercy is a complex and conflicted character. How she made it into the FBI is amazing and would probably not have happened in reality. She has an absolute need for her secret cabin, dating back to her being raised by a family of preppers.
Her upbringing is still an integral part of her, despite being banned from the family by her father. Mercy thinks she is prepared for any eventuality with her cabin, except for what really happens. Mercy has been estranged from her family for eighteen years but recently has reestablished contact with some members.
The information presented in the book about preppers, their communities and other survivalists is so fascinating. The mindset seems so stupid, or it did until recently.
