How dare you defy the law? In three minutes," Scarbrow said matter-of-factly, "we will shoot every man and woman-and child-who does not declare himself loyal to the people rather than the gweilos, foreign devils.""Surely this is the day."American business executive Ben Fielding has no idea what his brilliant old college roommate is facing in China. But when they're reunited in China after twenty years, the men are shocked at what they discover about each other.Thrown together in an hour of encroaching darkness, watched by unseen eyes, both must make choices that will determine not only the destinies of two men, but two families, two nations . . . and two worlds.All royalties will be donated to the persecuted church around the world.Alcorn, Randy C. is the author of 'Safely Home', published 2003 under ISBN 9780842359917 and ISBN 0842359915.
