The Face of the Enemy
Fresh from military service, Matt Clark learns of the mysterious disappearance of his beloved parents. Matt quickly embarks on a transatlantic journey to unravel the tapestry of clues that might lead to their captors, and from there, the mystery grows. What to make of the cryptic diary entry by his quiet but fearless mother? And why is he being followed as he navigates the busy streets of London? Soon Matt finds himself swept into a diabolical conspiracy to annihilate the core tenets of the Christian faith.
But Matt is not alone on his mission: he encounters the beautiful Rebecca Manguson and her twin brother, Luke, gifted siblings who will help lead him to the source of the evil plot. Drawn into a world of spiritual power he has never before experienced, Matt comes face to face with an unseen reality that changes every assumption he's made about life.

Eleanor gave me lots of vicarious delight – conviction in action. Her brain and competence almost make dirty white sneakers a fashion “do.” What friends and role models [these three books] have given us….”
