Evan Delaney is a heroine of our times: a woman with a big heart, a quick tongue and a hot temper that gets her into trouble. She is shocked to discover that Tabitha, her ex-sister-in-law, has joined The Remnant - the Reverend Pete Wyoming's fanatical band of disciples. And that Tabitha is trying to regain custody of her six-year-old son, Luke, currently in Evan's care while his father is posted to the Naval Air Warfare Center. Then one of the Remnant is killed, and Evan's brother is the prime suspect. With her boyfriend, lawyer Jesse Blackburn, Evan tries to clear her brother's name and rescue her nephew. In doing so, she finds herself caught up in a wild plan to steal weapon, and a blazing inferno on a Santa Barbara hillside.

China Lake has echoes of the film version of Cape Fear, except that the menace in this story is not a lone psychopath, but a fanatical religious cult known as The Remnant. Evan Delaney is the feisty young heroine who must battle to protect her small nephew Luke from the evil clutches of the cult. The nightmare begins when Tabitha, Luke's mother, becomes involved with The Remnant and uses their power to try to regain custody of her child. Evan joins forces with her brother in order to counter the destructive plans of the group and their belief of a forthcoming Armageddon. These are the elements in Meg Gardiner's compelling tale, a powerful mix of murder, terrorism and a wealth of dark secrets.
