For powerful, ambitious Senator Axyl Houston, this isn t enough. He wants the Death Panels to have the power to euthanize the genetically weak and imperfect; he wants America to lead the global Unified Order in purging future generations of disease and imperfection.
Against him stands David Rudder, an escapee from the Christian reservation called the Cloistered Dominion or Dome who in the simple, merciful act of rescuing a Down s syndrome baby from termination becomes entangled in a chain of events that could lead to a revolution for the Culture of Life. Or to its final destruction.
The Death Panels is an exciting and disturbing story of a not-too-distant future in which our current political battles over life and freedom have reached an explosive crossroads, and a clarion call to all Christians and lovers of liberty.

Will David be able to get back to the reservation with the little boy or will he get caught?
What an interesting story! I really enjoyed the clever planning that went into storyworld. I wasn't sure where the plot was headed, but it turned out to be really interesting. There were a lot of points of view to keep track of, and I got several of the women confused for a while before I could finally keep them all straight. But the book was intriguing and gave me lots to ponder. I thought it was cool.
