He and his adopted son stumble across the scene of a most grisly murder, the only witness to which is so traumatized that she doesn't want to speak about it. In time, they discover that the murder was the work of a cult based in Manitou Springs, one that the local law is afraid to do anything about. The reverend and his son get together a posse and go after the leader of the cult, hoping to see justice done.

Writer Biography - Nicholas Stephen Casale

Nicholas S. Casale grew up in Palmer Lake, which is a small town in Colorado. Shortly thereafter, he received a Bachelor of Arts degree in history from the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs and began working as a paralegal.

From a young age he was attracted to history, myth, religion, and spent several years searching for the religion that best matched his personal beliefs; he is now a practicing Messianic Jew and is happily married to the woman who taught him Hebrew.

He first started writing stories when he was 6 years old. He invented a simple character named "Mousey," who was a mouse and a wizard. While his stories have grown more sophisticated since then, he has always had a love for the themes of that original story; the idea that the weak may overcome the strong through cleverness and imagination.
