New York Times bestselling author Brenda Novak returns with “White Heat,” the first book in a new back-to-back trilogy. White Heat will be followed by Body Heat (September 2010) and Killer Heat (October 2010).
Nate Ferrentino and Rachel Jessop are operatives for Department 6, a private security company, and they’re going undercover to expose a new and dangerous cult.
This group has taken up residence in the Arizona desert, in a ghost town called Paradise. Members worship at the feet — and in the bed — of its charismatic leader, Ethan Wycliff.
On his orders, they tried to stone a woman to death. And they’re implicated in the disappearance of a teenage girl.
To expose the Church of the Covenant, with its arcane rituals and debauched practices, Nate and Rachel must pretend to be married. That’s the only way they can get in — but being Nate’s “wife” is the last thing Rachel wants.
She and Nate have a one-night history that’s just an embarrassment to her now.
But they don’t have a choice. Wycliff has to be stopped.
White Heat (MIRA Books, August 2010, $7.99 U.S./$9.99 CAN.) is available in the market, and at www.MIRABooks.com.
