My thanks to author and blogger Stuart Aken for taking the time to read and review my novel A Light in the Desert.
A Light in the Desert, by Anne Montgomery: #BookReview.
Blank Slate Press/Amphorae Publishing Group

As a Vietnam veteran and former Special Forces sniper descends into the throes of mental illness, he latches onto a lonely pregnant teenager and a group of Pentecostal zealots – the Children of Light – who have been waiting over thirty years in the Arizona desert for Armageddon. When the Amtrak Sunset Limited, a passenger train en route to Los Angeles, is derailed in their midst in a deadly act of sabotage, their lives are thrown into turmoil. As the search for the saboteurs heats up, the authorities uncover more questions than answers. And then the girl vanishes. As the sniper struggles to maintain his sanity, a child is about to be born in the wilderness.

I liked the twisty-ness of this book and especially The Children of Light. Hard to believe such crimes go unsolved.
Thank you, Arlene. It will soon be 24 years since the Sunset LImited was sabotaged, and still no one knows who did it. A mystery.
