Line of Duty is an enjoyable book. The first one hundred or so pages are suspenseful! It is well written. This book has good themes. Two of the themes are God is still good even when bad things happen and don't judge people by their appearances. I think she should write another book to tie up a few loose ends. Overall, I liked it, and it was a good book. I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys Christian suspense.
I love all of Terri Blackstock's books. But this is one of my favorite series. Start with the first book in this series. Learn how the two characters in this book met and how they fell in love. It adds a lot to the story. Besides the suspense the heartwrenching life reality they must face is terrific. I cried when I read this book. But in the end we all need God to deal with real life. It isn't always pleasant. I am reading so much right now but I want to take the time to go back and read this book again.
"Line of Duty" is a Christian suspense novel that turns into a general fiction with a mystery. This is the fifth book in the series, but it reads like a stand-alone.
The suspense in the first part was mainly created by the physical danger that the various characters were in and then wondering which characters survived. After that, the suspense was created by relationship tension, regret and sorrow leading characters toward potentially bad decisions, and the side mystery of who blew up the building. The mystery was handled realistically and was not easily guessable ahead of time.
The characters were varied, interesting, and dealt with realistic problems. The story's focus was mainly on dealing with loss (and why God would allow it) and on loving people who are different. Most of the characters were Christians who were mutually struggling to understand why God allowed some to live, some to die, and some to have life-changing injuries.
There were no sex scenes. There was a very minor amount of "he cussed" style of bad language. Overall, I'd recommend this interesting novel.
Terri Blackstock has done it again. This book was exciting and suspenseful. The twists and turns of her characters are so realistic yet at the same time unpredictable. This book is a perfect example of how all things can work for the good of God.
I have read this series and enjoyed the books very much. I really enjoy the religious books that you have and I also give them to friends at church to read. We all exchange the books and look forward to the new ones that come out.
