Sometimes the most dangerous of enemies crouches just inside the human heart.

Little Katie was a Christian. Her very best friend Ruth was a Jew. The girls' eyewitness testimony sent a bad man to Louisiana's infamous Angola prison. 25 years later, Ruth has become an embittered Rabbi, Kate is a lonely widow, the bad man is out, and people are dying in the strangest of ways.

Torn apart in childhood by animosities beyond their understanding, Kate and Ruth can no longer elude the past's unfinished business. To survive, these very different women must reach out to each other in spite of the mayhem and mistrust that shrouds one vital truth: sometimes the most dangerous of enemies crouches just inside the human heart.

Reviews for the Christy Award Finalist

It'll have you tightly in its grip until the final pages." (Eric Wilson, author of novelizations for Fireproof and Facing the Giants)

"Hooked, hooked and hooked!... A compelling story with profound faith implications... Take short a great ride through the final pages." (Sigmund Brouwer, author of the Canary List)
