From Amazon.com: School's back in session, and evil is in the curriculum: Judd and Vicki's old school has just been renamed Nicolae Carpathia High after the UN's new secretary-general, whom scripture-guru Bruce declares is the Antichrist and who has already begun planning a one-world government, religion, and currency.

But it won't be easy, because the faculty is confiscating Bibles and citing separation of church and state to put a lid on the truth. The Young Tribulation Force has to get creative to spread the Good News.

Something white moved, floating like the mist, and the Arabian stood there on the old mine road. White as an angel in the dark woods he stood, beneath the gray-green hemlocks, swan white against the black gravel of the road, so white he made Rhiannon's heart ache. And the proud lift of his head as he saw her, the flash of dark eyes and the flex of his fine neck, made her breath catch in her throat. She was so stunned when she saw him there that she didn't know what to do. Her bike hurtled toward him, and in the next instant he was gone like a wild bird. She caught a glimpse of long mane and flying tail, and then there was only the soft drumming of hooves somewhere beneath the trees. Then silence.

The brother detectives burn rubber in a high-speed race with both sides of the law where murder is the final pit stop. ================ From inside the book: MOTORCYCLE MANIAC "The pits!" Joe suddenly slammed his hand on the van's dashboard. "You mean the old quarry outside of town, where Biker used to practice motocross?" Frank asked. "Let's check it out." Frank and Joe began to search the quarry, but they didn't see even a trace that Biker Conway had been there. Then the sudden roar of an engine cut the air. Frank saw a big black cycle ridden by a black-clad figure drive straight toward Joe. There was no time for thinking-only for acting. Frank leapt for Joe. Joe fell to the ground, hard, then jumped to his feet as the motorcycle roared past him. "That guy nearly ran us down, Frank," he said angrily. There was no answer. Frank lay facedown in the dirt, motionless, a thin line of blood trickling down the side of his head.

In minutes they were crossing a bridge, on their way back to Somerset Village. Near the end of the bridge a powerful black BMW started to pass them. Dark-tinted windows on the sleek performance car made it impossible to see the driver. The BMW held its position, creeping closer to the MG. "Watch out!" Joe shouted. Before Frank could hit the brakes, four thousand pounds of BMW slammed into the side of the little MG.
