PURSUIT OF JUSTICE
Fiction / Romance / Suspense
Rating: 3 Cups
As a teenager, Bella Jordan ran from Runnels County, Texas, vowing to never step foot on that dry cracked dirt again. But when the FBI transferred her to Houston, she knew it was only a matter of time. Once again she is tracking a killer, only this time she may know the suspect personally.
It was a long time coming, but Carr Sullivan has finally turned his life around, and he thanks God everyday for coming into his life. But as he is about to find out, God has a few more trials for him to endure, and they will be the hardest he has ever faced.
Returning to Runnels County has Bella nearly sick with anxiety, but tracking down and apprehending FBI fugitive Brandt Richardson is exactly the case that she needs to advance her career. However, Richardson is not the only suspect, and suspecting that Carr is somehow connected to a killer like Richardson has Bella tied up in knots. Carr wanted nothing more when he left Dallas than to devote his life to God and maybe make a difference in the lives of troubled boys, but God has other plans. His faith is being put to the ultimate test, but with God by his side and Bella in his life, he prays for strength and hopes that the real killer will soon be brought to justice.
It is my opinion that this book falls under a category of a Christian/Mystery much more so than Suspense, and certainly more than Romance. I also find it a bit unbelievable that the FBI would not know nearly every detail of an agent’s past (especially considering there were court records), and then assigning that same agent a case where there is clearly a personal conflict. I personally could also do with a little more mystery within the storyline and little less preaching. However if you enjoy a decent mystery with a strong dose of Christianity, than this will be sure to please.
