Distortion by Terri Blackstock
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Juliet Cole cannot believe her eyes. Her husband of 15 years has just been gunned down in front of her. She thinks it is just a random shooting until she listens to a voicemail message on her husband’s phone. Just before he was killed, he had received several phone calls threating his life and the lives of his family. The people who killed Juliet’s husband believe she can get the codes to retrieve the drugs and money he had in his possession. Fifty million dollars is a big incentive to attack a grieving family, and Juliet decides to team up with her sisters and a PI named Michael Hogan to discover the double life Bob had been living for years. As she learns more and more about her husband’s life she wonders how could she have lived with this man and not seen it. How could he betray her and God? He was a professing Christian, but this hidden life shows different. Does she have what it takes to find out the truth?
Distortion is a book that will grip the reader by the heart and yank it every which way. Blackstock is able to take a story no one would want to live through and teach Christian truths we can learn from. Readers will be able to relate to portions of the story that reflect realities in their life and ask themselves how they have or would have reacted. Whether the reader picks this up for the murder mystery or the Christian fiction genre, they will not be disappointed in their choice.
