“Distortion” by Terri Blackstock was a book that was difficult to put down until it was finished. In fact I read it in two days. It is a riveting story about the murder of a well-respected Panama City surgeon as his wife watched in horror. That was not the end of her misery though as she received a message threatening her and her boys.
Juliet Cole was a part-time private investigator for family friend, Michael Hogan. In fact other members of Juliet’s family were actively engaged in those activities. Juliet’s sister-in-law had been killed only five months earlier and her sister’s fiancé had been murdered two years before. The coincidences among these murders were just too much to ignore. An active investigation began with Juliet, her sisters Holly and Cathy, along with Michael and Michael’s brother, Max, a detective with the police. You had to remember keep the characters straight in this novel. There are many suspects and things that come to light during the investigation that keep you on your toes. You begin to question how much can one family endure. Juliet and her family begin to question where God is. Has He abandoned them? Every time that thought comes, something else happens to make them believe that God is truly with them.
I was sent a free print copy of this book by BookLookBloggers.com in return for my honest review of the book.
