Just what kind of "kingdom" is cropping up in North Carolina's farm country? Long-time residents are moving out and 6,000 new families are flooding in, erecting massive warehouses and metal fences. The FBI suspects cult activity, but Agent Ben Atkins isn't convinced. Will he discover that evil has planted its roots . . . and is growing fast? 336 pages, softcover from Nelson.
Central North Carolina hasn't seen much change in over 50 years
but suddenly people who have been there for generations are leaving the small farming settlements-lock, stock, and barrel. When massive warehouses surrounded by metal fencing seem to go up overnight, local businesses are bought out, and more than 6,000 families establish residence in a community named Kingdom Come, the FBI begins to suspect cult activity. Agent Ben Atkins is sent to investigate, and though he does sense something major happening, he is not convinced it is sinister. In fact, as he moves in for a closer look, he begins to wonder if those on the inside of Kingdom Come are working to keep evil out. But time is running short for him to discover the truth, as unexpected enemies-law enforcement agencies, media groups, and even the church hierarchy-threaten the community's existence.
