    Some good parts, but just way too much

    This review was written for Deception.
    Let me start by giving the good points of this book; the characters are well done and interesting, especially Ollie, his friends, and his fellow police officers. The dialogues about God and the Gospel are great and Alcorn does a good job of defending the faith in those dialogues. There's plenty of suspense in some parts, but also alot to keep up with in others. The problem is that as a mystery, it is too long and there are too many twists and turns that could've been edited out. In addition, I was put off by the "Heavenly" conversations that were just add-ons in the story and bring too much speculation into what we will say or do in Heaven. I know this seems picky, but the character of God seems to be cheapened a bit and these scenes made me uncomfortable. There are some nice odes to Sherlock Holmes and Nero Wolfe, but again, it would've been nice to see these characters in a more concise, fast moving mystery. This is the first book I've read from Alcorn so maybe I'm being too harsh, but this wouldn't be a book I'd put on the top of my list to recommend.

    Suspense laced with "tongue in cheek" humour from beginning to end. Lots of in depth spiritual perspective which gave lots of "food for thought".

    Characters come to life and you feel like you personally know them. You feel involved in the twists and turns within the story line.

    Our Church Book Study group read this book over a period of several weeks. The hardest part was waiting until the next week to see what happened next. It is a wonderful story, full of humor and adventure. It also fits into the "who dunit?" story. Randy Alcorn is a great auther and you can visualize everything he writes. We highly recommend this, you won't be sorry.
