“Irresistible. . . . Full of great characters, twisty surprises, and a charming lightness of touch. Highly recommended.” ~ Lee Child, #1 New York Times–bestselling author

Robert Rotstein is an entertainment attorney with over thirty years experience in the industry. He’s represented all of the major motion picture studios and many well-known writers, producers, directors, and musicians. He lives in Los Angeles, California.

Attorney Parker Stern’s estranged mother, the enigmatic leader of the cultish Church of the Sanctified Assembly, shows up unannounced and asks him to represent a man named Ian Holzner—better known as the Playa Delta Bomber. In 1975, Holzner allegedly planted a bomb that killed four people. He’s been a fugitive from justice ever since, but now apparently wants to turn himself in. At first, Parker refuses to take on the case. But then Parker’s mother reveals a startling secret that all but forces him, against his better judgment, to represent the fugitive.

The reemergence of the Playa Delta Bomber after years in hiding creates media attention. Then another “Holzner bomb” explodes and other violent acts of domestic terror mount. Is Holzner the mastermind behind these crimes?

At great personal risk, Parker gradually uncovers the truth about these terrorist attacks; at the same time, he discovers long-hidden, painful realities about both his family and his own past.
