Publisher's Description

Andie Ryborg is on the run. Her father's campaign for governor and work against the illegal drug trade has put a target on her head. Hiding out in a quiet bungalow in Miami's exotic Coconut Grove, she hopes to find a normal life removed from the treachery of her father's world. But no matter how far she runs, she can't escape the powerful Francini family.


In Sue Duffy’s novel Fatal Loyalty, outspoken anti-drug activist Tony Ryborg can’t afford to be distracted – he’s running for governor of Florida, and the elections are fast approaching. However, his daughter Andie has a secret, one that could force him to drop out of the race. Both she and her father are in danger, facing threats from the infamous drug lord Leo Francini. Lone wolf Evan Markham just wants to keep Andie safe, but his past and present connections with Francini’s cartel are catching up to him. The Ryborgs know he is their only chance at ending the nightmare of Francini’s drug trafficking, but will they forgive Evan in time to accept his help? Trust is a privilege that is not easily regained: Evan must learn this truth the hard way.

Although the ending is predictable and some parts of the plot are a little tangled, Duffy more than makes up for these shortcomings by skillfully weaving together mystery, suspense, drama, and a hint of romance to create a story that will leave the reader breathless – especially after a couple of completely unpredictable, jaw-dropping plot twists. Throughout the novel, twists and all, Duffy is particularly adept at contrasting the loyalties of her characters: some unwavering, some hesitant, some misplaced, and some possibly fatal.

The Ryborgs’ faith carries them through their myriad trials – they daily put Proverbs 3:6 to work, acknowledging God in good times and bad. Although this faith is not the main focal point of the novel, it is a common thread that draws the characters and the reader together. Their faith does not go unnoticed by others around them; many are influenced by their constant and unfailing trust in God. Evan, especially, is affected by his observation of their faith.

Fatal Loyalty is a sure winner for fans of action and suspense. After all, when reading Sue Duffy’s book, one learns to expect the unexpected. Duffy’s flowing, intense prose will draw even the most reluctant reader in, and her faith will encourage and inspire readers of all backgrounds. – Maria Martin, www.ChristianBookPreviews.com

    Sue Duffy has written a book laced with tension, excitement, and subterfuge. Andie Ryborg is in danger because her father is running for governor of the state of Florida on a very strong anti-drug campaign and the drug lords are out to make certain that he is not elected. Consequently, Andie's life has been threatened and she has been forced into hiding. In spite of the fact that Andie has been assigned protection, she still senses that someone is watching her. Her home is invaded and her privacy becomes non-existent. For every move that Andie's father makes to ensure her safety, the members of the drug gang are right there to foil his efforts.This is a very well written, generally fast-paced, and excitement-filled book. There were, however, several sections in the book where it really seemed to drag and I found my attention wandering. After a few pages, I would manage to get back into the story but there were times that I was sorely tempted to skip some pages. I persevered and did not do that for fear that I would miss some important element in the story. I later realized that I could easily have skimmed over some of those parts without losing a thing. There were some parts of the story that I felt were weak. For example, the book kept emphasizing that Andie and other characters should trust no one; yet when a character showed up on the scene with no one to vouch for her credibility, in no time at all Andie, her father, and her father's staff were trusting this person completely and implicitly. It just seemed a bit too quick and easy for my acceptance factor, but other reviewers have not had a problem with this issue. In spite of these minor flaws, I would still recommend this book for those who enjoy reading about drug abuse, dirty politicians, and God's omnipotence and mercy. The message of redemption and forgiveness is strong and well-done and it is for this reason that I feel this book is a worthwhile read.

    This Christian fiction suspense novel did not "grab" me even though there were many twists and turns, even though it was set in Florida--MY state, and even though I could not completely figure out the ending. Perhaps it was me; you may find it wonderful.The characters were unbelievable. Andie leaves her home in a panic and chooses to stay overnight with someone she met a few hours earlier? That would not be my choice.The plot was bumpy rather than smooth. A scene of suspense involves a man running for governor being threatened by someone following his car. The would-be governor is told to "get down!" This is followed with a scene in an art gallery with a disgruntled art critic fussing at an artist. Bumpy. We never find out the results of the car chase.Even the research is a bit sloppy. For example, this small error: the author uses "Dade Community College" as a location in South Florida. It's been Miami-Dade Community College for as long as I can remember.Thank you to Bonnie at Christian Fiction Blog Alliance and Kregel Publications for my copy.

    "Fatal Loyalty" is a fast-paced Christian romantic suspense novel--though the romance happened a bit fast and near the end. The world-building was very good and brought the setting alive in my imagination. The characters were likable, realistic, and had realistic struggles. After a bit of a rocky start, the suspense built nicely and kept me turning the pages.Several of the main characters were Christians and prayed to God for comfort and help. However, I didn't always agree with Andie's ponderings about good and evil--they weren't always biblical. There was a mild Christian message to the story, and one character started praying to God after having not done so for years.There was no bad language and no sex. Overall, I'd recommend this as enjoyable, clean reading.I received this book as a review copy from the publisher.

    Fatal Loyalty is a book about Tony Ryborg running for governor of FL, his fight against drugs, death threats, his daughters safety issues, and Evan Markhams involvement with the drug lords and the Ryborgs.Sue Duffy takes you though a fast-paced thriller of the dangers of drug lords and those who oppose them. Throughout the book, I find that the choices we make determine the course of our lives, good or bad. Some are split-second choices and you need to have wisdom.The underlying question, although not always obvious, is whether you trust God to be there for you when things dont make sense. We all question where God is when times get tough and dangerous. Sue also infuses this story with a deep faith in God and prayer for protection, and that faith is vital throughout the fast-changing events brought on by drug lords out to destroy their enemies.Theres the old saying, When things get tough, the tough get going. The underlying theme here is prayer and trust in tumultuous times. Where does your help come from?What I also found exciting in Sues style of writing was her use of metaphors, i.e., Far at sea, they (high-speed racer boats) would suckle from a mother ship engorged with drugs, then race to the mainland to, in turn, feed their own flocks of dealers. What a picture! Need I say more?Special thanks to Cat Hoort of Kregel Publications for sending me a review copy.
