About the Book:

Stolen Indian artifacts…A murdered museum guard…A missing woman…A baby in danger…

Only Desiree can unearth the horrifying secret that links them all.

Museum security expert Desiree Jacobs doesn’t mean to get in danger’s path. Really she doesn’t. But when a friend is in trouble you don’t just walk away. No matter what your overprotective FBI agent boyfriend says! So when Desi and Tony’s date at a presidential ball is interrupted by a frantic Maxine Webb, Desi doesn’t hesitate to jump in.

Soon Desi is neck-deep in a confusing array of villains. Did Max’s niece run away or was she taken? Is she still alive or the victim of a perverse ritual? And who wants her infant son–and why?

Then Tony’s organized crime case collides with Desi’s investigation, throwing them both into the path of something dark and sinister. Something that craves blood…

From the streets of Desi’s beloved Boston to the mountain desert of New Mexico, Desi and Tony must rely on God to thwart unseen forces–and save a young woman and her baby from a villain more evil than any of them can imagine. 

My Rating & Thoughts:    

Desi goes to New Mexico with her best friend, Max, when Max receives a call that her niece has gone missing. When they arrive they discover that there is more to the story as some art pieces at the museum the niece worked at have been stolen around the same time the niece disappeared. While searching for answers Desi gets entangled in some scary stuff. Meanwhile her boyfriend is working a case in Boston but soon discovers that his case leads him to New Mexico and ties in with the situation Desi is involved in. So much happens to Desi that I could not put this down, I had to know that she would survive. There are big cult vibes happening, dead people turning up alive, and secrets being unveiled. Both main characters had to learn to lean on God and put trust that He would help them. I grew to really like the main characters together. There was a great moment that happened during the very terrifying situation they were in. I loved the way the book ended and had to pick up book 3 right away.
