Product Description

Two bodies in an isolated canyon on the edge of L.A. One with saddlebags filled with diamonds. That's how it begins for Liz Towne, a stunning blonde with a devout husband who has given up a prime job for reasons Liz cannot understand— for "Mac" MacDonald, a Gulf War vet who's done time in prison and is just now finding his way back to normal life—and for Roxanne "Rocky" Towne, Liz's sister-in-law, who suspects things she cannot prove. All three are thrown together after a tragedy in Pack Canyon. After stumbling upon the stolen diamonds, Liz is faced with an escalating set of choices: Truth or lies? Love or money? Saint or sinner? Liz thinks she knows who she is and what she wants, but when the web gets terribly tangled, is her game of deception a clever lie or a deadly trap? A new suspense thriller from James Scott Bell, bestselling author of Presumed Guilty.

Publisher's Weekly

Former trial lawyer and Christy Award–winner Bell (Presumed Guilty) hits his stride in this twist-filled suspense thriller with punchy dialogue and a resurrection ending to keep readers awake at night. When Liz Towne and her husband, Arty, find diamonds and a corpse along a trail in Pack Canyon, something takes over Liz that one doctor calls “sin dissociation.” She stops at nothing to get rich and take a gift to her role model, who taught her to kill. When her sister-in-law Roxanne “Rocky” Towne suspects foul play, Rocky calls on a tortured but praying and faithful Gulf War veteran to help her track down Liz, who is on the run. Dialogue carries the book with rich characters and flashbacks, but time stamps and a confusing wraparound narrative device feel tacked on and unnecessary in this fast-paced thriller with its Los Angeles music scene, creepy canyons and a slew of cons. Bell, who also writes nonfiction books on writing, is a master of the cliffhanger, creating scene after scene of mounting suspense and revelation in this heart-whamming read. (Mar.)

    This book leaves you guessing and makes you wonder what will happen next. The only down side to this book is the cliffhanger.

    James Scott Bell has written a twist-turning tale of three individuals all on a course into destruction or redemption. To tell to much of this story would give it away, but let's just say that the greed for diamonds will lead down a path of deceipt that snowballs so much, you'll wonder how it will all end. The character of Liz Towne reminds me of the classic character in Steinbeck's East of Eden, Kate, who will follow her sinful desires at the cost of anyone as well as her own soul. The ending was unexpected and you'll definitely will find yourself reading to the end. The grace of the Gospel can certainly be found too and it is an important aspect of the story. Buy this riveting tale and enjoy.

    I read this book for our church's book club. I can't say I liked it much. I didn't care for any of the characters, except Mac, and even then he wasn't that likeable. I thought the ending in particular was lame. I won't give away the ending, but it sounded to me like the author didn't quite know how to wrap up the tale. Not at all what I expected.
