Fern Michaels. Under the Radar. New York: Kensington Publishing Corp., 2009.

When it comes to fighting injustice, distance and danger never deter the Sisterhood. In Michaels’ thirteenth installment of the Sisterhood series, the women and their posse travel from their Yancey County hideaway to rural Utah. Former Supreme Court Justice Pearl Barnes is a friend to the Sisters whose retirement activities involved establishing an underground railroad for battered women and their children. While on a mission, Pearl discovers fourteen pregnant teenagers in a broken down bus on the side of the road. Fearing for their safety, she picks them up with plans to help them escape. However, because they are members of the local polygamous sect, Heaven on Earth (HOE), her initial plan is thwarted when their leader finds them. With the Sisterhood’s full attention, Pearl is able to help the young women she finds – and many more victims. As the Sisters discover many lewd and illegal aspects of the HOE, they work tirelessly to put an end to the injustice.

This is the thirteenth novel in Fern Michaels’ Sisterhood series, but not all of the novels in the series are set in North Carolina.
