Dark Deception by Nancy Mehl Book Review

Cover Art

Kate O’Brien has been leading a quiet life in small-town Shelter Cove, Arkansas, for the past four years when her past suddenly comes roaring back to life. Four years ago, she and her twin sister were attacked by an elusive serial killer. Only Kate survived, and it was her drawing of the attacker–along with some last-minute evidence–that convicted the suspect.
She’s been in witness protection ever since, but new evidence suggests the convicted man isn’t the murderer and she’s been subpoenaed to testify in the new trial. Nervous about the risk, she’ll only agree if the same marshal who protected her during the original trial escorts her to St. Louis.

Deputy U.S. Marshal Tony DeLuca accepts the assignment to bring Kate to the trial, remembering how her strength impressed him. While in Shelter Cove, however, he gets a call from his chief, advising them to stay in Shelter Cove until a new development in the case can be straightened out. But when Kate’s safety is threatened, Tony must race against the clock to keep her alive and put this ugly case to rest before anyone else gets killed.

My Thoughts:

This is the second book in the Defenders of Justice series. I didn’t read the first book in the series. This book can be read as a standalone book. However I’m sure I missed a lot of details that make the core of this second book.

Nancy Mehl has created a suspensful mystery. Its a fast paced book with a lot of suspense, danger, and thought provoking issues.  It was a hard book to put down and kept me up late. I loved all the twist and turns and not knowing what to expect-masterfully done!

Not many authors can weave together a Christian suspense novel that still shows Christian morals and faith and make it work.

I loved the characters Kate and Tony. Kate was a strong and determined character with strong faith in God. So many great complex characters in this story line.

I’m not going to give away any spoilers!
