A blast of gun fire echoed, signalling the start of the race. The crowd shouted, "Oklahoma or Bust!" The race was on. Mother held on to her bonnet as Pa shouted. "Yeehaw! Giddyup, Sade! Come on Prince!" His voice seemed lost, yet added to the chorus of hundreds of yelling people. Whips cracked in the air. Excited horses lurched forward and the wagon bounced along the bumpy ground. Wagon boards creaked and shuddered. Spring less wheels jarred the bench where Mother sat. Jenary had heard Pa tell about the open land into Oklahoma Territory. He had warned them about the deep ravnies and streams, and the crossing of the Cimarron River. It was her and Billy39;s job to take care of their belongings in the wagon. Jenary closed her eyes.

The Truth about Christianity explores the irreconcilable differences between the Christian faith and those who challenge the Bible as a book of myths and fairy tales. Most people believe modern science has rendered belief in Scripture as ingenuousness. Christians vehemently fight that label. Pragmatically though, the truth can be determined using reason, logic, and indisputable science. Deceived uses these paradigms to guide to the inevitable conclusion about which worldview can be supported by the facts and not a person’s own personal preconceptions, something everyone has, whether they wish to admit it or not. A person’s bias and beliefs cloud judgment when subjected to another worldview. It is only through stringent analysis that a person can objectively weigh the evidence to see whether or not it passes the tests of reason, practice, and experience. Then and only then can the truth be known. After reading Deceived you will know whether or not your worldview is supported by the unadulterated facts.

Three owners of borderline skid-row gin mills hatch a dingbat scheme to bolster their revenues by, what else? -- murdering the competition. The Competition is the only decent guy around, it seems; the honest owner/operator of the only watering hole in the area where you wouldn’t even trust the ice.
The three co-conspirators, no master criminals to begin with, set off a series of Rube Goldberg missteps and quickly begin to be devoured by their own scheme.
When the intended victim’s bodyguard gets wind of the plot, the whole landscape darkens, and the second half of the novel becomes an accelerating, cinematic slide into a truly demonic and violent denouement, and a life-or-death climax you will never see coming.
