In the novel, Salty Like Blood by Harry Krause, M.D., we meet Dr. David Conners, whose life appears to be on the fast track to success. His previously rocky marriage seems to be healing, he enjoys a growing relationship with his seven-year-old daughter, and he is in line to make partner in his medical practice. However, the disappearance of his young daughter, followed closely by the death of his father, sends his life spiraling out of control. His marriage strains to the breaking point, his investigation into his daughter’s whereabouts costs him his job, and the pressures of life threaten to snuff out what little flicker of faith he has left. His search for revenge, in light of his own desire for forgiveness, brings him face-to-face with Hebrews 9:22, which says, “In fact, the law requires that nearly everything be cleansed with blood, and without the shedding of blood there is no forgiveness.”

Krause uses tragedy, suspense, a combination of first- and third-person points of view and flashbacks to take the reader on an engaging study of contrasts. Some characters deal with the results of unforgiving staunchness, while others find the freedom that forgiveness bestows. Consequences of taking one’s own revenge play out alongside the fight to allow God to repay evil, as it says in Romans 12:19: “Do not take revenge, my friends, but leave room for God’s wrath, for it is written: ‘It is mine to avenge; I will repay,’ says the Lord.” Krause uses true-to-life, flawed characters to impart lessons of commitment, loyalty, and the fight to do the right thing, in spite of the obstacles.

I highly recommend Salty Like Blood to anyone who enjoys suspense and/or mystery. I also recommend it to anyone who desires to read a book where the characters struggle with their human nature but ultimately make the right choices and where God, and justice, prevail in the end. You won’t be disappointed. – Nikki Studebaker Barcus, www.ChristianBookPreviews.com
