departments from all around the area are called in. The firefighters from Newpointe are especially concerned since they know Jill is inside the building. Dan, her husband, rushes in to save her. But as firefighters work to evacuate the upper floors of the building, a second and third bomb explode, causing the lower floors to cave in. Firefighters and civilians are buried beneath the rubble. When the smoke finally clears, Jill narrowly escapes the chaos of the explosions and fire only to find Dan missing.

Blackstock weaves plots involving a mystery of who planted the bombs and why; a missing CEO at the top of the suspect list; an orphaned, troubled teenager acting out her grief is the only living witness to the bomb; and the personal struggles of the fallen--including the fight Dan and Jill have on their hands to survive no matter the outcome.

A great mystery that leaves you guessing. And an inspiring story of human compassion, Christian love and perseverance, and ultimate faith in God.
