Sheila and Recluse by Randall Jarmon is a summons to captivating suspense. Adam North is enjoying his retirement on a ranch in Texas until unavoidable circumstances call him back into the life of the Recluse. The terrorist group known as The Movement sends a group of assassins to the US to kill Christians. These Serpents have been trained by the Recluse’s Russian adversary, Yuri Petrovich. In a brief encounter at Palo Duro Canyon, Recluse eliminates the threat of The Provider, but is wounded. He needs a doctor to help with his recovery, enabling him to complete his covert mission – take out the Serpents. Fortunately, Dr. Sheila Wilson, a missionary doctor serving in Africa, is ready to return to the States and start a private practice. Sheila and Adam have mutual friends, Walter and Constance Lindblohm. The Lindblohm “Institute,” a national security firm, teams up Recluse and Sheila for this counter-espionage project.
