Summary:

In this powerful follow-up to his action-packed thriller The Kill Clause, Gregg Hurwitz ratchets up the excitement with another page-turner featuring Tim Rackley, a lawman motivated by honor, morality, and justice.

Called back into the fold of the U.S. Marshals Service, Tim is tasked with retrieving Leah Henning, the daughter of a powerful Hollywood producer, from a mind-control cult. As Tim wends his way deep undercover into an insidious operation called "The Program," he confronts a brand of mind-warping manipulation beyond his worst expectations.

Tim becomes enmeshed with a diverse band of characters -- from the charismatic, messianic leader T. D. Betters to a cult reject burnout to the intelligent yet highly vulnerable Leah herself -- and finds himself caught in a shadowy landscape of lies, manipulation, and terror. At stake: innocent minds -- maybe even his own.

    This book was pretty good. I thought the story line was intriguing and well developed. The author did an excellent job of making the mind-bending powers T D. Betters seem realistic and plausible. He also created reasonable scenarios of how someone could successfully go undercover to infiltrate an operation like the one portrayed in the book. I’d highly recommend it.
