Barbara Covington has one more chance to save her daughter from a devastating addiction, by staging an intervention. But when eighteen-year-old Emily disappears on the way to drug treatment—and her interventionist is found dead at the airport—Barbara enters her darkest nightmare of all.
Barbara and her son set out to find Emily before Detective Kent Harlan arrests her for a crime he is sure she committed. Fearing for Emily's life, Barbara maintains her daughter's innocence. But does she really know her anymore? Meanwhile, Kent has questions of his own. His gut tells him that this is a case of an addict killing for drugs, but as he gets to know Barbara, he begins to hope he's wrong about Emily.
The panic level rises as the mysteries intensify: Did Emily's obsession with drugs lead her to commit murder—or is she another victim of a cold-blooded killer?

Terri Blackstock hasn’t always written for the Lord. Just six years ago she was an award-winning secular novelist writing for publishers such as HarperCollins, Harlequin, and Silhouette. But with thirty-two titles published and 3.5 million books in print, she found that she was miserable. The compromises she had made in her career had taken their toll on her spiritual life, and she yearned to get back into a right relationship with Christ.
After much soul-searching and wrestling with God, she finally told the Lord that she would never write another thing that didn’t glorify Him. Thinking she might never be published again, she began planning ways to supplement her income, while she worked on her first idea for a Christian novel.
Because she enjoyed reading suspense novels by John Grisham and Mary Higgins Clark, she decided to try weaving a faith message into a fast-paced page-turner with ordinary people in jeopardy. When Christian publishers expressed great interest, she realized that a secondary job would not be necessary. God was paving the way for her to enter the Christian publishing world.
Since that time, she has published thirteen novels, eight of which have been best-sellers. She writes about flawed Christians in crises, and God’s provision for their mistakes and wrong choices. While most of her novels are in the mystery/suspense genre, she has also rewritten four of her earlier books as Christian romances. In addition to that, she is co-author of a series of “family values” novels with Beverly LaHaye. Their first book, Seasons Under Heaven, debuted at number three on the CBA Best-Seller List. Her latest books include Word of Honor (a suspense novel set in south Louisiana) and Showers in Season, written with Beverly LaHaye.
Terri has appeared on national television programs such as The 700 Club and Home Life and has been a guest on numerous radio programs across the country. She has been the subject of several magazine articles, and the story of her personal journey appears in books such as Touched By the Savior by Mike Yorkey and True Stories of Answered Prayer by Mike Nappa.
