Attempting to adjust
to life without her, her husband, Kurt, accepts an opportunity to train with

friend. When the friend is kidnapped, it’s discovered Lacy was the intended
target. Pursued by unknown assailants who will stop at nothing to catch her,
Lacy finds herself scared and alone. She turns to her mother for protection,
unaware that her mother’s secluded mountain sanctuary has become a prison.

she knew. Secrets and lies draw her family onto a collision course with
decision has placed them all in danger, and she is forced to confront her enemy
head-on to protect herself and her daughter. Now she must depend on a God she
turned her back on and the husband she left behind to save them both.
she was thinking, she scanned the books titles on Mr. Stewart’s shelves. He had
everything from classics to textbooks. She started randomly pulling books out.
This wasn’t a movie, but there was always the chance that something was hidden
among the books. It was about as likely as finding a hidden compartment in one
of his drawers. A loud creak shattered the silence. Lacy had heard that same
creak every time the back door was opened or closed. Finally, one of the
Stewarts must be home. She started to walk to the door and stopped. Maybe it
was intuition or maybe she was just paranoid after last night, but something
Lacy walked to the window and peered through the blind. She
didn’t see any cars parked in the drive, and she hadn’t heard the garage door
open. The house was as silent as it had been when she arrived—so quiet she
could hear the large antique clock ticking on the credenza.She listened at the office door and heard
numerous footsteps throughout the house. There were no voices, which meant they
didn’t want anyone to know they were there. She quietly closed and locked the
door, hoping to buy herself some time while she figured out what to do. She
could go out the window, and try to make a break for her car. She looked
through the blind again and scanned the street in front of the house. On the
opposite side of the road, she saw a black SUV that looked very familiar. The
car from last night! Suddenly, her heart was pounding in her chest. This could
not be happening again.
shade to the side, she reached for the lock on the window. Nothing—the windows
didn’t open! Then she walked to Mr. Stewart’s desk and reached for the clock on
the credenza. If she had to protect herself, it was the only thing in the
office that looked like it could do any damage. She wrapped her fingers around
it, and started to lift it, but wouldn’t budge. It must be heavier than she
thought, so she grabbed it with both hands. She stillcouldn’t lift it. It was impossible for that
clock to be too heavy to lift.
She inspected the clock and discovered it was
bolted to the desk. This was not merely a decorative antique clock. The time
was wrong, and she noticed that although the clock was ticking, the second hand
wasn’t moving. Expecting the door to fly open at any time, her hands trembled
as she unlatched the round glass door covering the face of the clock. A
bolted-down clock that ticked but never changed the time had to be significant.
She took her finger and slowly moved the minute hand around the face of the
clock. When the clock reached twelve o’clock, she heard a soft click. She ran
both hands over the clock, trying to discover what secrets it was hiding.
Through the wall she heard someone in the room next door. Her time was running
out. She was trapped in the office with windows that didn’t open. It was over…
