Publisher's Description

Sensational journalism has never been so deadly.
 
The weekly cable news show Judgment Day with Suzanne Kidwell promises to expose businessmen, religious leaders, and politicians for the lies they tell. Suzanne positions herself as a champion of ethics and morality with a backbone of steel—until a revelation of her shoddy investigation tactics and creative fact embellishing put her in hot water with her employers, putting her credibility in question and threatening her professional ambitions..
           
Bitter and angry, Suzanne returns home one day to find an entrepreneur she is investigating, John Edward Sterling, unconscious on her living room floor. Before the night is over, Sterling is dead, she has his blood on her hands, and the police are arresting her for murder. She needs help to prove her innocence, but her only hope, private investigator Marcus Crisp, is also her ex-fiancé–the man she betrayed in college.
                       
Marcus and his partner Alexandria Fisher-Hawthorne reluctantly agree to take the case, but they won’t cut Suzanne any slack. Exposing her lack of ethics and the lives she’s destroyed in her fight for ratings does little to make them think Suzanne is innocent. But as Marcus digs into the mire of secrets surrounding her enemies, he unveils an alliance well-worth killing for. Now all he has to do is keep Suzanne and Alex alive long enough to prove it.

    Not the best book Dyson has written but still an interesting read. I would recommend it. I rated this book against others she has written so that is why I say it isn't the best. I liked the book and think the majority would also.

    I had gotten this inspirational mystery from the library and decided I wanted to add it to my collection. The mystery, itself, I found only so-so; it was the characters, Marcus and Alexandria, who won me over. I like a case to solve, but this one just didn't interest me. I found myself wanting to skip ahead to some more dialogue between the two investigators. With Alex never getting her cliches just right and cleaning her gun collection, Marcus' low-key persona is her perfect match. Would definitely try a sequel.

    Suzanne is the perfect example of many people in the media world who will stop at nothing to get the story. Does it matter if it is true? Does it make a difference if the facts are skewed a bit, simply to make the story more sensational? Does the impact on family members and associates of the victim ever come into consideration? Do the people under investigation have any rights or feelings? Sadly, to many reporters, the answer to each of these questions is a resounding, "No!" Unfortunately, Suzanne is a prime example of all that is wrong with many shows and producers who will stop at nothing to get the story, all the while convincing themselves that the "public has a right to know." The author has done an excellent job of portraying this aspect of the media and has created a character that is easy to dislike.

    When Suzanne herself becomes a victim, she learns first-hand what it is like to be on the receiving end of false charges. She learns how quickly a life can be destroyed, a career irretrievably damaged, and how quickly so-called friends will turn their backs on you. As her life is in shambles and she relies on someone whom she had hurt in the past to save her from prison, she begins to realize the extent of the harm that she has done. Suzanne has plenty of time to examine her faults and begins to understand the meaning of the scriptures found in Matthew 7:3 & 4 which say, "Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, 'Let me pull out the mote out of thine eye;' and, behold, a beam is in thine own eye? Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother's eye." (KJV)

    Wanda Dyson has written an engaging book with a central character so flawed that the reader wonders if there is any hope for her. The writer has paralleled the lives of so many people who have to sink to the lowest depths before they realize their need for redemption, mercy, and forgiveness. On page 137, there is an excellent dialogue relating to the fact that those who choose to do evil hide in the shadows because they are afraid of the light. This is a definite comparison to evil and darkness as portrayed in the book of John 3:19 & 20 (KJV), which says, "And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved."

    Judgment Day is not only an entertaining book, it is also very thought-provoking and will cause the reader to re-examine his/her own life. I heartily recommend this book to anyone who enjoys fine Christian fiction.

    I received this book for free from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group for the purpose of this review. I was not obligated to give a positive review nor did I receive any other compensation in exchange for reviewing this book.
