Book Two of Sailor Stone's "The Girl on the Cross" trilogy continues where book one, "The Jairus Man", left off.
Benny is now in the midst of his obsession and he finds Russell and Holly to be different in all ways than how he'd imagined them. FBI agent, Cooper Latchet, begins his hunt for Maria's attackers and he soon finds his life turned upside down after he meets Tamera and her seductive ways. Smokey begins to tell Maria, as she slips ever deeper into her coma, about what happened to him in Vietnam.
All of this as Maria's attackers lurk in the dark of night just outside of the bedroom where she sleeps in Russell's estate.
