Sixteen-year-old Fawn Morrison witnesses her boyfriend's murder, and when the real killer points the finger at her, she hides to avoid arrest. But Fawn possesses a computer vault that contains information about some shady dealings in Hideaway.

Karah Lee Fletcher has left big-city doctoring to help in Hideaway's clinic. On her way into town, she is in a car accident and meets paramedic Taylor Jackson. There is a spark of attraction, but both are attempting to run from God.

Alexander's skill at meshing spiritual truths with fascinating suspense is captivating. Well-drawn characters help the two separate plots move rapidly toward an exciting conclusion. (Aug., 416 pp., $12.95)
