MAITLAND, Fla., June 14, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Within the pages of Claire Spradling's new book, Duress ($18.99, paperback, 978-1-62230-954-2; $28.99, hardcover, 978-1-62419-366-8; $9.49, e-book, 978-1-62230-955-9) readers will be drawn to an entertaining story of psychotic crime and drama. A main character discovers that alarm systems, law enforcement and family can't guarantee protection and safety. The author's objective is to remind readers that, when faced with danger or adversity, one may ask God to intervene.


"Characters confront a rehabilitated schizophrenic who hears voices and holds a kind-hearted woman under duress, which tests her faith and determination," states the author. "Individuals respond differently to difficulties. [The] woman in distress calls on a higher power than the authorities to rescue her."

Claire Spradling, a registered dietitian, spent years working in medical institutions documenting the progress of patients. She tapped into her life experiences to deliver a novel that pits a high-minded psychiatrist against law professionals, who claim his patient is a psychopath.

Xulon Press, a division of Salem Communications, is the world's largest Christian self-publisher, with more than 8,000 titles published to date. Retailers may order Duress through Ingram Book Company and/or Spring Arbor Book Distributors. The book is available online through,, and
