On Clover Road

East Coast Premiere

A seedy, abandoned motel room. A distraught mother desperate to be reunited with her cult-member daughter, missing more than four years. A hard-boiled private detective hired to kidnap and deprogram the girl. The cult leader himself. Doors with bars. Secrets. Suspicion. A gun. Rope. Something will go wrong. Very wrong.

Presented by special arrangement with the author.
