A Merciful Truth by Kendra Elliot


Raised by a family of survivalists, FBI agent Mercy Kilpatrick can take on any challenge—even the hostile reception to her homecoming. But she’s not the only one causing chaos in the rural community of Eagle’s Nest, Oregon. At first believed to be teenage pranks, a series of fires takes a deadly turn with the murder of two sheriff’s deputies. Now, along with Police Chief Truman Daly, Mercy is on the hunt for an arsonist turned killer.

Still shunned by her family and members of the community, Mercy must keep her ear close to the ground to pick up any leads. And it’s not long before she hears rumors of the area’s growing antigovernment militia movement. If the arsonist is among their ranks, Mercy is determined to smoke the culprit out. But when her investigation uncovers a shocking secret, will this hunt for a madman turn into her own trial by fire?

This is the second book in the Mercy Kilpatrick series and it didn't disappoint. Mercy comes from a background that seems to help her connect with this new killer. Someone is out to destroy and collect property. However, they don't really know who or why.

What ensues is a tale of twists and turns, fights, secrecy, and misdirection that is both frustrating and intriguing. You have Mercy's family who is still struggling to accept what she does for a living – they still hold her at arm’s length.

However, when push comes to shove, will Mercy's family pull together and help? Or will the split between them grow?

I loved the twist at the end and hope that more comes of the family secrets that her father is keeping.
