Brill hides behind her badge and her bitterness, deciding that moving her family away from Memphis is the only change she needs to make.
Before she has time to unpack her boxes, people start disappearing. Lots of them. To complicate matters, a local legend has many residents believing that the cause is unearthlytied to the "red shadows," or spirits of the departed Cherokee who once inhabited the land. While Brill draws on all of her experience and instinct to solve the case, she must confront an enemy that threatens everything she holds dearone that cannot be stopped with a badge and a gun.

SheriffMAAge: 35-44Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5May 2, 2010SheriffMAAge: 35-44Gender: femaleUnexpectedly enjoyable!These types of books are the ones I steer clear from, but I had nothing else to read.I was surprised to find myself unable to put it down as the mystery unfolded and the life of the headstrong/determined female policy chief deals with her insecurities and failures as a mom and wife in a working mans world.Sort like my own life, which is why I steer clear. Yet I found myself engrossed and relating to the character as she confronts the real enemy. Im ready to add this author to my list of favorites.
Nora Finding HopeAtlantaAge: 45-54Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5April 12, 2010Nora Finding HopeAtlantaAge: 45-54Gender: femaleIm so thankful to have received a review copy of this exciting, action packed, heart felt, thought provoking police drama. The Real Enemy is the first book in the Sophie Trace Trilogy, introducing Police Chief, Brill Jessup. Brills the first female police chief, in a new town, in a new house. She realizes she still has the same old problems. Theyve followed her there. She had to work really hard to get the men in this town to respect her, and realize she had police instincts they could trust. She left Memphis, Tennessee to escape her husbands affair, hoping for a fresh start. Kurt is committed to the marriage and seeks forgiveness. Brills heart is closed to love from her husband. She would do her duty (she was good at that) and stick it out for their childrens sake, but she wasnt going to forgive him. How could she? Brills police instincts kick in high gear when people start disappearing one by one, without a trace. Who will be next? This town is used to a man being in charge, which makes her work twice as hard. It takes a crisis for Brill to see that maybe she didnt have it all together. Did she turn her back on God when her whole life was turned up-side down by the affair? Now her life was being turned up-side down againonly in a different way. What did she really believe when peoples lives were on the line and things get personal? This book made me appreciate our law enforcement team throughout this land. We take for granted all the things they do to help us feel safe during the day and night. Kathy Herman gives you a peak at what life might look like for the family of the Police Chief. The Police Chief brings a different type of work home with her. I enjoyed this book and cant wait to read the next book in this series, The Last Word. Nora St. LaurentACFW Book Club CoordinatorFinding Hope Through Fictionwww.psalm516.blogspot.com
Sharon Mcmills5 Stars Out Of 5June 15, 2009Sharon McmillsKathy Herman's gifts and talents as a wonderful writer and story teller shine once again in The Real Enemy. This is a two fold story one of great mystery the other forgiveness. I loved the mystery and really wrestled with and was sometimes immobilized by the forgiveness part of the story. Once again BRAVO Kathy Herman. I impatiently wait for your second book in this Sophie Trace Trilogy Series.
Carol Schultz5 Stars Out Of 5May 15, 2009Carol SchultzI really enjoyed reading "The Real Enemy". It kept me on the edge of my seat. I also liked how the author protrayed Sophie's feelings of lost trust toward her husband and how she struggled in her faith also because of his infidelity. I thought the book was well written.
