“Aftermath” is a new release in Christian fiction by Terri Blackstock.
It opens with Taylor and her two best friends attending a political rally where their favorite band is scheduled to play. Everyone is having a good time when, all of a sudden, an explosion throws them all into chaos. Taylor escapes without her friends and starts to experience shock and anxiety.
Meanwhile, Dustin is driving down the interstate when blue lights flash behind him. He is being stopped by police with a warrant to search his car based on an anonymous tip. When they find explosives in his trunk, he is more shocked than anyone.
Arrested and threatened with being charged with terrorism, he uses his one phone call to reach an old friend, attorney Jamie Powell.
