The most powerful weapon against evil is sacrifice.

Attorney Scott Ellis is defending Lester Garrison, a 16-year-old accused of opening gunfire on a Sunday afternoon church gathering.

At the same time, Scott's volunteer work at the local high school brings him into contact with Kay Wilson, an English teacher and former girlfriend. Unknown to either of them, Catawba High School is not just a place of learning--it's a battleground for an age-old struggle between good and evil. On one side are praying students and a simple janitor with an extraordinary faith. On the other side is a deeply troubled young man intent on mass destruction.

Caught in the middle, Scott and Kay learn that lasting victory will require the ultimate sacrifice.

I was rather disappointed in this book, even though it is well written and had both excitement and saddness. It was not up to Robert Whitlow's other books. I do recommend it to anyone who is a Whitlow fan, as I am. Read it and make up your own mind about the book. Read full review
