Publisher's Description

Work has become Police Chief Brill Jessup's favorite distraction from trying to forgive her husband's infidelity. But when seven people in her town go missing, her tireless investigation threatens her family and she's forced to confront the real enemy.

Author Bio

Best-selling suspense novelist Kathy Herman has written nineteen novels—including the Sophie Trace series, the Secrets of the Roux River Bayou series, the Seaport Suspense series, and the Phantom Hollow series—since retiring from her family’s Christian bookstore business. She and her husband, Paul, have three grown children and live in Tyler, Texas.

Publisher's Weekly

Bookstore owner turned novelist Herman delivers a competent suspense novel that will please fans of police procedurals. After 18 years with the Memphis police, Brill Jessup is almost immediately handed a challenge as new chief of the police force of a small town nestled in the Smoky Mountains. People go missing, one by one, and townsfolk are more than ready to believe that an old legend about vengeful displaced Cherokee accounts for the mystery. Meanwhile Brill’s home life is in tatters; she has stayed with her unfaithful husband Kurt for the sake of their daughter but resolutely refuses to forgive despite his remorse. Brill is an intriguing, flawed character and several townspeople supply local color, though the Jessups’ neighbors the Masinos seem improbably saintly. A Bible verse about evil forms an epigraph and credibly motivates some action in this police thriller. Some of the exposition is slightly clunky, but on the whole things move along briskly, and the novelist will have readers waiting for the next installment in this trilogy. (Mar.)

    Unexpectedly 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.

    Im 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

    Kathy 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.

    I 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.
