His doctor is dead and a revolver has been planted in his jacket with one round fired. He has only the dimmest memories of the shooting or of the cataclysmic events that have brought him to this place, including those of the great, global war he prosecuted as the acting President of the United States from aboard a hypersonic command plane.Huff evades his pursuers with the help of a group of miners. They hide him in a tipple and listen skeptically to his warnings that fallout will soon poison the air and water.

He meets up with a group of evangelical worshippers by a stream, who feed him and listen attentively to his tale of an international nuclear catastrophe, believing he is a prophet pronouncing the End Days and The Rapture. Finally, in a nearby town, a friend shelters him for the night and helps convince him he is suffering from delusions.Eventually, a brilliant legal investigation, relentless work by a military professor in a sports car, a daring leak from a White House adviser and the tactics of an innovative trial judge in West Virginia solve the mystery.

Few will guess the outcome. The intrigue and suspense that pulses through “Huff’s Rapture” do not let up until the very last page.About the authorJohn Neil Hall is a writer on politics, national security, foreign policy, major world events and people.

For the final four decades of the 20th century and until 2006, he was an active newsman and Washington columnist.Media General News Service, along with Scripps-Howard, syndicated John Hall’s column from coast to coast.

He was Media General’s bureau chief in Washington, opening and expanding a national news staff for the Richmond-based organization in 1979. He also wrote an award winning investigative report that forced the Navy to reverse its conclusion that an enlisted man had caused the fatal USS Iowa explosion in a suicide bombing.

Much of Huff’s Rapture is set in the valleys, creeks and nearby towns where Hall grew up.
