Bomarcus, a mysterious voice heard only in dreams, speaks to a young mental patient to foretell a tragedy about to befall a sinister, polygamous family in northern Arizona. A war-wounded veteran of the Gulf War, now a psychological researcher from Seattle, is abruptly coerced away from a much-anticipated motorcycle vacation in South Dakota. He becomes tangled in a desperate race to rescue several young women, the wives of a dangerous and demented patriarch. Shocking discoveries at the polygamous compound reveal a pattern of corruption, sex abuse, incest and murder, with origins decades earlier in the jungles of Vietnam. This second novel in a series beginning with "Lord of Obstacles," features Glenn Porter and Charlotte Waller, as they explore the deep and hidden connections shared by human beings. Mysterious voices demanding retribution and redemption, can sometimes reach out across time and space dimensions to communicate, when we allow ourselves to hear.
