Two billion people will die. Doomsday. An American Hiroshima triggered by a joint stratagem at the hands of Islamic terrorists in New York City and a strategically positioned Chinese submarine in the Pacific just west of Los Angeles, setting the stage for retaliation and WWIII. Supernatural rulers of darkness are behind the destructive plan, fulfilling Biblical prophecy, ushering in the one world government of the Antichrist, where Satan's wrath is unleashed for a time, times, and a half to scatter the power of the holy people. Jaron Fuller and Mandy Harris are conducting a Bible prophecy conference in Los Angeles. But a family emergency cuts the seminar short. Unaware of the impending disaster, they don't have pilots to fly the ministry Learjet home to Virginia. Will they find a pilot to fly the jet before Los Angeles is vaporized from the approaching nuclear missile? Or are they doomed to die? Susan Grogan's second novel, The Encounter, is an end times supernatural Christian thriller. It captures how current events correlate with Biblical prophecy and warn that we are living in the final days and rapidly approaching the ultimate battle between good and evil. Susan previously published the novel, The Assignment, with Xulon Press. She lives with her husband, Jeffrey, in northwest Georgia.
