LIGHTNING RELEASES (3/21/2014) – Two horrific bombs explode at St.John’s high school in Houston. Students, faculty and staff are killed and injured, and many have symptoms of post traumatic stress disorder. Parents at St. John’s and other schools as well as the whole Houston community are angry and fearful. Detective Mark Lane is on the scene immediately and he calls on his friends and investigation colleagues Andrea and Tom Tolman to help him in the investigation.

A decade ago the Tolmans and detective  Lane successfully treated a family disrupted by a father’s destructive involvement as a leader of a satanic cult group. They now are affectionately known by the Houston police and judges as the Three Muskateers . They are often called on in cases where the interface of psychology, religion and the law are involved. Now they have met the supreme test of their skills in all three domains. Can the Three Muskateers help the HPD solve this crime before more terrorism happens?
