Having lost his position as a Trenton City Dispatch reporter, Jack Crittendon has become a mostly stay at home dad raising his two young daughters (Rebecca and Faye). When he works part-time as an Event Pros security at places like the Festival Arena, his live-in mother-in-law watches the children. To his chagrin, his eight-month pregnant wife Pam has become the family breadwinner instead of resting before she gives birth.
Presidential candidate Martin Sterling arrives at the Festival Arena to rally his supporters. Jack and his friend Brian Shakespeare are part of the security force; both expect the biggest threat being ennui. However, Homeland Security agents believe terrorists target the Festival Arena threatening thousands including Jack and Brian. Knowing sh*t happens after what Meade did to his wife and children (see Fear Has a Name) and what the toxic industrial-government complex did to his town (see Poison Town), the former journalist and his survivalist buddy take action to thwart a horrible tragedy.
The third Crittendon Files is a taut twisting Christian suspense thriller that grips the reader from the moment the threat to the people in the arena begins. Although the climax feels improbable, fans who know Jack will battle against the odds to prevent a 9/11-like murder of thousands of innocent people.
