FBI Special Agent Mercy Kilpatrick has a secret. She was raised in Central
Oregon as a
prepper and survivalist and hides that she continues to practice that way of life. Her fiancé
Truman Daly is the chief of police in the rural town where she grew up. He knows about and
supports her secret because she is the woman he loves.
In A Merciful
, Mercy uses her survivalist skills to infiltrate a militia amassing
stolen firearms in an isolated forest community. It requires that she relinquish all contact with
the outside world and live in a culture where suspicion is second nature. While she is gone,
Truman handles three baffling execution-style murder investigations in their small town.
I love writing Mercy and Truman. This is their sixth book, and the reader will be
immersed in their determination and commitment as the two of them never give up on
returning to each other—no matter how deadly the situation appears.
My readers know Mercy is a healthy food freak, and I think she’d make this sweet salsa with a
big kick all summer.

Mercy Kilpatrick #6
The Wall Street Journal bestselling series continues as Mercy Kilpatrick becomes
embedded in the nightmare of a terrorist conspiracy.
The job: infiltrate a militia amassing illegal firearms in an isolated forest community. FBI agent
Mercy Kilpatrick is the ideal candidate. She knows Oregon. She’s near the compound. And
having been raised among survivalists, Mercy understands the mind-set of fanatics. Lay low,
follow rules, do nothing to sound an alarm, and relinquish all contact with the outside world.
She’s ready to blend in.
As Mercy disappears into the winter hills, something just as foreboding emerges. Mercy’s
fiancé, Eagle’s Nest police chief Truman Daly, is faced with a puzzling series of murders—
three men dumped in random locations after execution-style shootings.
Now, for Mercy, trapped in a culture where suspicion is second nature, and betrayal is
punishable to the extreme, there is no way out. No way to call for help. And as plans for a
catastrophic terrorist event escalate, there may be no way to stop them. Even if Mercy dies
