Rafferty’s Rule 17: Never take a client at face value. (Amendment B): Or a case.
Teenager Kimberly has run away with her boyfriend though her Mom, Kathy-Lee, doesn’t want to admit it. All cases should be this easy; Rafferty’ll have it wrapped up by the weekend.
But with boyfriend Brian home alone, that idea bears rethinking. The last sight of Kimberly was of her putting the missionary in the position with the charismatic cult leader, Dariell Thof, and Brian doesn’t know where she’s gone since then. Or much care.
By the time Rafferty tracks Kimberly to a remote compound in the Texas desert, he’s stuck between a pack of gun-toting religious zealots, and an ATF agent playing hardball to protect his agenda.
Can Rafferty get Kimberly out before the two sides come together and all hell breaks loose?
He’ll do his damnedest. And after what he’s learnt about Dariell’s twisted thirst for young girls, Rafferty’s itching to organize a personal meeting for the cult leader and his god.
If you’re a fan of Spenser, Mike Hammer or Matt Scudder, then this hardboiled pulp thriller from W. Glenn Duncan Jr. will keep you reading late into the dark night.
