“The Negotiator” by Dee Henderson

My oldest daughter gave the first book of the series, “The Negotiator”, which is part of Dee Henderson’s O’Malley series, to my wife along with a strong recommendation to read it. My wife was in the middle of the “Twilight” series at the time, so I picked up “The Negotiator” and read it.

After I finished “The Negotiator”, I found out that it was only the first book in a series of six. I was happy about that because I had been so captivated by “The Negotiator”, that I had read it through in just a few days. In fact, it was the first Christian novel I had read for many months, and I became compelled to get back into the reading mode.

The book is about a hostage negotiator, Kate O’Malley, who had become targeted for a hit. The ensuing investigation brought up the name of someone that she was not prepared to face again.

The book is filled with non-stop action and suspense, though it is considered to be a romantic novel. I never thought I would ever read a romance book, let alone enjoy it. It held my attention from cover to cover, despite my short attention span.

“The Guardian” by Dee Henderson is book two of the O’Malley series, and a review of that book should follow shortly.

This House is Alive

While driving back and forth to Coeur d’alene this past weekend, I listened to an audiobook of “House” by Ted Dekker and Frank Peretti.

Frank Peretti has always been one of my favorite authors. Peretti has a way of making the darkness of the spirit world come alive, which gives me the desire to strengthen my connection with the Light of the world.

The action in “House” was non stop. It presented intensely suspenseful listening from the edgy start to heart warming finish. It seemingly shortened our drive by hours. Everyone in the car was on the edge of their seat the whole trip.

Although “This Present Darkness” and “Piercing the Darkness” probably can’t be beat, “House” is an interesting and captivating story. If you enjoyed another of Peretti’s books “The Oath”, you will like this one.
