More about Vengeance Burns Hot:
George's volume presents a suspense filled story that is pulled from recent headlines. Residents of the Western U.S. have seen what happens when a loosely organized group of anti-government militias and activists unifies around a common cause. What if one of those anti-government militias fell under the charismatic sway of a highly competent veteran of military special forces? Ed Kline, a heli tack firefighting pilot stationed in the Cascade Mountains east of Seattle, is in the midst of a ferocious fire season and a budding romance. He receives a cryptic text pleading for help. He wonders if it originated from his adult son, who disappeared a year ago. Then a group calling itself the PUMAs—Patriots United Militia of America—assassinates two state legislative senators and perpetrates a lethal armored truck robbery on the same day. Was Ed’s son one of the killers, trying to escape them, or both? To find the answer he risks his career, his new relationship, and his life.
