(From the publisher):
People Can Be Brainwashed and Programmed to Kill. September 11th taught us that. Barney Harrigan, a successful entrepreneur, discovers that his young and impressionable wife has been lured by her fanatical sister into the Glory Cult, a ruthless group in Oregon run by a charismatic “guru.” Determined to free her from the cult's grasp and return her to him and their four year old son, he prevails upon an old lover in Washington D.C., Naomi Forman – a human rights activist – to use her political connections to help him. Barney and Naomi travel to Oregon and team up with a pair of tough, cunning deprogrammers. They plan to kidnap Barney's wife from the cult. However, they soon find themselves in a deadly cat and mouse game with Jeremiah, the David Koresh-like leader of the Glories. Readers will be on edge throughout this page-turner of a novel, and will learn how the power of sinister forces using mind control techniques can turn innocent people into weapons of destruction.
