From J. Todd Scott comes a chillingly engrossing thriller about a cult survivor who must confront the horrors of her past to ensure the safety of the future.

Ten years after a fiery raid kills her family, former cult member Sybilla “Billie” Laure has a completely new identity. She’s settled in rural Colorado with her daughter, hoping for a quieter life. But the world has other plans.

With wildfires raging and birds dropping from the sky, Billie wonders if her cult leader father’s apocalyptic predictions are finally coming true. When an intruder murders her husband and kidnaps her daughter, Billie has no choice but to confront the secrets of her past. But Billie’s journey has other perils, too—namely, a police chief hot on her trail, determined to expose the dangers of the defunct doomsday cult.

To save her daughter, Billie will have to go back to where it all began—to the ruined compound in New Mexico where the real threat is the truth.

Praise for this book

"Scott lays out his short, propulsive chapters like a trail of breadcrumbs you can't help but follow. This one will keep you up late turning the pages." - Brian Freeman

"It's all here: doomsday cults, innocents and grifters, unexplainable phenomena. Heartache and regret. A chance at redemption. What sets The Flock above your average thriller is the absolute ring of authenticity from this twenty-plus-year career DEA agent. You got the real deal right here." - Alma Katsu

"We live in a world of bent truths, tribal divisions, and conspiring realities - and you'll find a dark, mesmerizing reflection of this in J. Todd Scott's latest thriller, The Flock. Scott writes with a terse poetry and builds a relentlessly paced plot, but it's the superbly drawn characters who will wreck you in the best possible way." - Benjamin Percy
