It has been 10 years since Emma Winters saw Sam Ryker. Ten years since the night her brother disappeared, in a situation that she’s sure Sam knows more about than he’ll tell her. When a mysterious sniper shoots at Emma while she’s inspecting a landmark off the Natchez Trace Parkway, Sam uses his new position as a Natchez Trace law enforcement district ranger to help. Will they get the bottom of who’s hunting Emma? The case may require digging up more than bullets and old park ranger files.

Bradley provides a well-assembled plot with a mix of crime thriller elements and inspirational romance. The characters are better drawn than in some of her previous books, and the unusual setup (some heroes who are in law enforcement, some not) makes the descent into adventure and investigation a little more unexpected.

A fun ride for genre fans.


Rating (1 to 5 stars)

3 stars

Suggested Audience:

Christian suspense fans who enjoy romantic subplots intertwined with the criminal investigation.
