Product Description

September 12, 2001. Four members of the Klasser family are found dead outside Dallas, Texas. In the wake of 9/11, the Klassers' neighbor, Omar Jones-an American citizen of Arab descent-is convicted of their murder.

A month before Jones' execution, attorney Lije Evans searches for evidence that will prove the man innocent. But Evans' quest goes deeper than solving one crime. He is determined to find the secret behind the dark history of sleepy Swope's Ridge-and how it ties into his wife's murder.

Interlocking mysteries lead Evans and his team to the battlegrounds of former Nazi Germany, the dirt roads of Kansas, and a rusty cargo ship in the Gulf of Mexico. Along the way, they discover a secret that offers the promise of great power-and the greatest temptation they've ever faced.

    The suspense was so great you didn't want to lay the book down; I couldn'r wait for this book to see what would happen after the fist book. They were both very good!!!

    After reading Farraday Road I could hardly wait to getmy hands on Swope's Ridge. Ace Collins sure knows how to hook an audience and write a great mystery. Ihope that these two are the start of many books to come. My friends at church enjoyed them also.

    Outstanding book and follow-up to Farraday Road. I could not put this book. Excellent writing and plot development. Even though I figured who the "leak" could be, I sometimes doubted with all the twists and turns that this book takes. Every wall in my apartment would be filled with this story board. I am anxiously looking forward to a third book and I want to find out more about Curtis, Jamie, Heather, and Lije. Don't keep us waiting Mr. Collins.

    Swope's Ridge continues the story of Lije Evans, a small-town, Arkansas lawyer, trying to find the answer to who killed his wife. He thinks that her death is somehow related to her purchase of the property at Swope's Ridge. After he and his friends make an unusual discovery there, the team goes on a world-wide search for answers.The book is fast-paced with lots of twists and turns. I found it difficult to put down and hope to read more adventures of Lije Evans. Like Farraday Road, Swope's Ridge wasn't overtly Christian, but it did have a few more references to faith and several of the characters did attend church. I am not mentioning this as a negative factor, but for information. If you are expecting a book with Christian content, you will be disappointed. On the other hand, if you typically steer clear of "Christian fiction" and like mysteries, you should definitely consider reading this series.I received a copy of Swope's Ridge for free from Zondervan in exchange for my honest review. I was not compensated for this review.
