The draw of Revelation in the Bible is that it's so open to interpretation, and many people interpret it in different ways. The women being killed are offered up as sacrifices to appease the four horsemen of the Apocalypse, and the quiet religious town is rocked with fear when the bodies are discovered. Amy and Hunter work together to trace each victim's last moments and uncover the cult that is killing the women. Everyone is a suspect, because the cult members could be anywhere and small towns have their whisper networks. Amy and Hunter are chasing leads, but they're few and far between. The sparks between them fly, especially when they continually have to work together and travel across Florida.

We have the story of the agents intercut with a young couple and their six-year-old son escaping the clutches of a cult with the help of the FBI. The cults start with a religious bent, wanting to help followers achieve peace here and in the afterlife. It ultimately involves ceding all property and money to the Divine Leader and all women becoming his "wives." Creepy, and a situation that is eerily being reenacted. There's a reason for it, and it's a taut race to the end of the book. Will they find the Divine Leader in time? Will they save the remaining victim? Who's really involved? All these questions are tied up and answered by the close of the novel, and there's also a potential hook for the future.
