    Again, Randy Alcorn's mystery books answer a lot of questions to life and Christianity through an entertaining maze of mystery, entertainment, and entertainment. The reader has quite the ability to capture each character with his voice giving each such a personality. On our many trips to hours are filled with delight as we watch the scenery passes our car windows. Again it is a great tool for the non-Christian and those who have difficulty reading or do not have the time.

    Deception is the 3rd in this series, the first being Deadline and then Dominion. Ive read all three. All are brilliantly done and all three star Detective Ollie Chandler. Ollie is ordered to include Clarence Abernathy, a newspaper reporter and acquaintance of Ollie and mutual friend Jake in this investigation. This one focuses around a murdered professor. Ollie has seen this professor before. How did he really die? Did Ollie murder him in a drunken stupor? After all, a wrapper of a certain unpopular gum one that Ollie was known to chew, was found at the scene and Ollie was having blackouts after some drinking sprees. Then there is other evidence that points to Ollie as well. Perhaps it was someone else from the police force.

    Excellent follow up to the two earlier editions of this best selling trilogy. Who can resist liking Detective Ollie Chandler with his sandpaper mannerisms and sarcastic wit! Great insight into his personality and past experiences that help you have compassion on his caution and unwillingness to believe.... Lots and lots of action and twists in the plot make for a great reading/listening experience. The only thing that would make this audio book better would be to make it audio-theater with multiple voices and sound effects!Thanks for not disappointing me Pastor Alcorn! I can't wait for the next edition!

Author/Artist Review

Author: Randy Alcorn
Located in: Gresham, OR
Submitted: August 27, 2007

    Tell us a little about yourself.  I’m the founder and director of Eternal Perspective Ministries (www.epm.org) and the author of over twenty-eight books, including Safely Home and six other novels and my nonfiction works The Treasure Principle, The Grace and Truth Paradox, and Heaven. My wife Nanci and I are the parents of two married daughters and we have four wonderful grandsons. I enjoy hanging out with my family, biking, tennis (I help coach high school boys), research and reading. You can visit my blog at www.randyalcorn.blogspot.com

    What was your motivation behind this project?  Deception had been on my mind, off and on the back burner, for ten years. It was fun—but a lot of hard work—to finally write it. The many letters I got from those who’d read my previous novels Deadline and Dominion served as a big encouragement to write this semi-sequel. It’s really fun to have the end product now, and to feel good about it. I’ve enjoyed the encouraging responses.

    What do you hope folks will gain from this project?  First, a story that entertains them. If that doesn’t work, the theme or underlying message won’t work either. That underlying message is that there is an unseen realm and that things are not as they appear. I want to leave my readers with the sense that to follow Christ is not only right, but it’s smart and ultimately in their best interest. To not follow him is a form of self-destruction, even though we don’t typically think of it that way. If we have eyes to see, we’ll realize that God’s calling to us, the life he wants us to live, and the rules and principles of Scripture are like guardrails. The purpose of guardrails on a winding mountain road is not to mess you up; it’s to prevent you from being hurt. So if you dent your fender on a guardrail that kept you from going off a cliff, you don’t curse the guardrail – instead you say, “Thank you to whoever put that guardrail there, because it just saved my life!” I think readers of Deception are left with a sense of God’s providence and protection, and also a sense of the choices he leaves us with, whether we’re believers or nonbelievers.

    How were you personally impacted by working on this project?  Though publishers and readers have asked me to, I’ve never in my previous six novels felt I wanted to go back and use the main character again as such in a subsequent book. I know it would be easier in some ways, but I’ve felt like each person gets one book on center stage. Ollie Chandler is the first character that has made me feel different about this. When I started Deception I thought this would be it, no more stories centered on Ollie. But once I got inside his head, things slowly changed. I thought, I like this guy, I like his quirks, his sense of humor, the gruff exterior and the soft heart, the head-butting toughness and the vulnerability of a lifetime of hurts. So, depending on the response to Deception (because I’ll find out whether readers really like Ollie), Lord willing, there may well be one or more other Ollie stories to come.

    Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists?  Those who read Deception will see that I have a special love for Conan Doyle's Sherlock Holmes stories—every chapter begins with a Holmes quote. In Deception, I also pay tribute to the Nero Wolfe mysteries by Rex Stout. I've read or listened to most of the forty-seven Nero Wolfe books.

    Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know:  On the New Earth, I want to meet people whose lives were touched by my books, and hear their stories. And I want to thank all the people whose writing touched my life. On the present Earth, I want to be remembered as one of God’s grateful errand boys. I want my life and my writing to have said, “It’s all about Jesus, not about me.” I won’t leave behind much of an inheritance to my children and grandchildren, but I hope my wife Nanci and I leave a deep and abiding heritage.
