Pulse pounding, raw and filled with a twisted web of secrets, Distortion is proof that Christian fiction can deliver a powerful punch- and still have a focus on the Lord. It's Terri Blackstock's newest release from her Lamplighter series. A highly respected doctor is murdered, his family is utterly devasted and then... things get really bad.
"Bob, we're getting impatient with you." The male voice was unfamiliar, deep, raspy. "You're putting yourself in danger. But we won't stop with you. We can make an example of your children, too."
The phone message unleashes an avalanche of questions and Bob's wife, Juliet Cole, is determined to discover the answers in order to keep her family safe. After fifteen years of marriage, she comes to realize that her husband is not at all who she thought he was. Now she may have to pay for his dirty little secrets.
Juliet Cole and her siblings are incredibly strong characters with a tremendous love for each other. Watching them work together kept the story moving with a bit of hope, when all seemed to be lost. I'd cast Julianne Moore as Juliet- gorgeous and extremely tough when it counts. I also loved hating the cunning villainess, Amber Williams. She's a Pamela Anderson type, with dangerous desperation.
Terri Blackstock engages her readers and delights them with a suspenseful trail of bread crumbs. Don't pick Distortion up at bedtime unless you're prepared for a sleepless night. You won't be able to put it down.:)
About the book: Juliet Cole's life has been dismantled by the murder of her husband. She doesn't know who---or what---to trust when everything she has believed to be true about her marriage has been a lie.
A husband's lies can have deadly consequences.
When Juliet Cole's husband of fifteen years is murdered before her eyes, she thinks it was a random shooting. Devastated and traumatized, she answers hours of questioning, then returns home to break the tragic news to her boys. But a threatening voicemail takes this from a random shooting to a planned, deliberate attack.
Juliet realizes that she and her children are in danger too, unless she meets the killers' demands. But as she and her sisters untangle the clues, her husband's dark secrets come to light. The more she learns, the more of her life is dismantled. Was her husband an innocent victim or a hardened criminal?
