After proving herself in the field during the siege on America by the Victus terror organization, a shaken, but determined Pepper McCallan joins the upper ranks of the U.S. Counterterrorism Agency to track down Lilly Wang. Driven to avenge her ten-year-old son's murder at the hands of terrorists, Pepper makes fighting in the combat ring and shooting assault rifles look easy. Beneath her polished veneer, however, her emotions are waging a war against her new identity as she struggles with remorse for the lives she's taken in battle. While in Boston, her emotional state leaves her vulnerable to romantic overtures by her boss. Located in picturesque Western Australia, and well-funded by embezzlement from the Malaysian government, Victus sets out to use insect drones in a novel and devastating way. Lilly Wang is at the center of Victus, believing her analytical skills are valued by its leader, but quickly discovers she must navigate his deadly whims to stay alive. President Cecil Scott's private life is exposed while he simultaneously battles terrorism and his soon-to-be ex-wife. His well-heeled D.C. divorce attorney, Annie Preston, finds herself in a deadly predicament with underworld elements when lovers' identities are at risk of being revealed.
'...I feel at last that I am embracing the present moment of life. I haven't arrived, I'm just resting; resting beside quiet waters that inevitably churn and stir from time to time and turn into strong currents that drag me back into the river of the hectic everyday.' This book takes you on a quest through the chaos of Middle Eastern city life and the drama of a youth-led revolution to endless stretches of desert sand, and Bible places from Mount Sinai to the shores of Galilee. This quest, along life's dusty detours, is in search of oases of all kinds - people, places, and little glimpses of eternity. Lynne's journey involves laughter, tears and raw honesty, and is often one lurch forward and two steps backward, but it has led her to deeper insights into faith and greater reliance on God than she ever imagined. Lynne Chandler lives with her family in Cairo where she serves as music director in the Anglican/Episcopal international church that her husband pastors. She is the author of Embracing a Concrete Desert (BRF, 2010) and her website is www.lifeonthenile.com.
