The Christian life is not a playground, but a battleground. One of the fiercest foes in this battle dwells within our own hearts: the enemy of indwelling sin. The Scriptures command us to "put sin to death." This is what pastors and theologians of another generation called the "mortification" of sin. But how do we mortify sin? And what role does the gospel play in this effort to apply lethal force against sin? How can we avoid falling into legalism while still maintaining a passion for holiness? And what kinds of strategies actually work in the daily battle? These are questions I have personally wrestled with as both a Christian and a pastor. This book is my attempt to answer those questions and provide a biblical and practical guide for the war against sin.
A murder is committed during the big game hunting season in the Talkeetna Mountains of Alaska. Retired Army Major Ben Hunnicutt and his hunting partner find the body and are drawn into the subsequent investigation. In an attempt to lure the killer into the open, officials publicly hint that Ben and his partner may be able to identify the killer. Due to bureaucratic bumbling, his partner is murdered and an FBI agent is killed. Infuriated, Ben becomes the hunter, using himself for bait and planning his own style of justice. He tries to lure the killer, identity still unknown, to the Eureka Roadhouse during a winter caribou hunt. The plan backfires when the murderer and a female accomplice trap Ben during a sub-zero blizzard and attempt to eliminate him. A freak of the arctic weather allows Ben to wound the killer and to escape in the storm. Having seen and identified the pair, Ben doggedly goes on the hunt again, determined to settle the matter personally. Needing to go to ground until the wounded man recovers, the pair commits two more murders and gains possession of an isolated cabin near Talkeetna. Ben persists, is spotted watching the cabin--the fugitives flee after again attempting to kill him. The case continues northward, each party knowing that the other will grant no quarter.

Desperate to see the town, Mira runs away—and discovers a world she never could have imagined. In Beau Rivage, nothing is what it seems—the strangely pale girl with a morbid interest in apples, the obnoxious playboy who's a beast to everyone he meets, and the chivalrous guy who has a thing for damsels in distress. Here, fairy tales come to life, curses are awakened, and ancient stories are played out again and again. But fairy tales aren't pretty things, and they don't always end in happily ever after. Mira has a role to play, a fairy tale destiny to embrace or resist. As she struggles to take control of her fate, Mira is drawn into the lives of two brothers with fairy tale curses of their own...brothers who share a dark secret. And she'll find that love, just like fairy tales, can have sharp edges and hidden thorns.
