Ex-DEA agent Jesse Warden has seen enough of the inside of a solitary confinement cell to last him a lifetime. Or two lifetimes, which is the sentence he's serving after being convicted of a plan he was planning to commit, but never did. So when an old buddy shows up with a deal that could spring him from his hell behind bars, he's ready to listen.

To gain his freedom, Jesse must infiltrate a dangerous and reclusive religious cult that has been stockpiling weapons and eliminating those sent to investigate. From the moment he arrives in the Idaho mountain town where the cult is centered, Jesse finds every aspect of life dictated by the group's eerie, imposing leader. Pitted against not only the cult, but also the feds who sent him, Jesse feels control of his own life slipping away, and must make a final,desperate attempt to regain it -- or die trying.

One of Stuart Woods novels
other than the series.
Heat is as good as all his other books and a lot better than some. Enjoyable and fast moving. 4 Stars.

Early book by Woods. Much different than his later series. Gritty story with less humor, this particular story line was copied by several other authors using the locale and the survivalist settings in Idaho. Woods has to be doing something right.
