Summary
Attorney Parker Stern's estranged mother, the enigmatic leader of the cultish Church of the Sanctified Assembly, shows up unannounced and asks him to represent a man named Ian Holzner--better known as the Playa Vista Bomber. In 1975, Holzner, an anti-Vietnam War radical, allegedly planted a bomb that killed four people. He's been a fugitive from justice ever since, but now apparently wants to turn himself in. At first, Parker refuses to take on the representation. But then his mother reveals a startling secret about Holzner that all but forces Parker to take on the case. The reemergence of Holzner after years in hiding creates media attention. Then a bomb explodes and other violent acts of domestic terror mount. Is Holzner the mastermind behind these crimes? At great personal risk, Parker gradually uncovers the truth about these terrorist attacks, and at the same time discovers long-hidden, painful realities about his mother, the father he never knew, and his own past
