Series: Dinah Harris Mystery
How far will some go to silence an influential Christian voice?
FBI agent Dinah Harris now has a missing person's file to go along with a bad case of alcohol abuse and the depression she cannot seem to shake. Fighting to keep her focus, she struggles to find answers for why Thomas Whitfield, the prominent Secretary of the Smithsonian has vanished from his office with foul play almost guaranteed. Whitfield's body is eventually found, and Dinah is drawn into a frightening conspiracy, as more people begin to die, and Whitfield's faith is revealed as part of the motive behind his murder. Dinah finds troubling answers in an academic world filled with powerful financial endowments and a virulent opposition to the faith Whitfield only recently found. Can she reveal the truth before she finds herself the next silenced victim of a ruthless, unseen enemy?
First in a powerful new fiction trilogy!
Julie Cave credits her parents for introducing her to books at a young age, which fostered an enduring passion for reading and writing. As a child, her favorite authors were Enid Blyton and C.S. Lewis and it wasnt long before she began copying them, writing short stories for anyone who would read them. At fifteen, two things happened which would shape her future: she heard a creation science speaker at her church which cemented her faith in God; and she finished her second novel-length story and realized she had fallen in love with writing novels.
After school, she completed a health science degree, got married, and worked in banking and finance. All the while she wondered how she could combine her love of writing and her strong passion for Christian apologetics and evangelism. One weekend at a church camp, a friend asked, What if the guy in charge of the Smithsonian Institution went missing? The result and the answer to that question is Julies maiden published novel, Deadly Disclosures. This book is first in the Dinah Harris trilogy authored by Julie; the other two books are titled The Shadowed Mind and Pieces of Light.
Julie has two daughters and lives in Brisbane, Australia with her family. She divides her time between being a wife, a mother, and an author.
This novel addresses the conflict between evolution and creationism down to very specific points that will cause readers to do some serious thinking. Both sides are presented in an unbiased way through dialogue among different characters. There are no direct Bible passages quoted, however the message of Gods relationship with man in an imperfect world is clearly explained several times. Even Dinah Harris struggle to end her suicidal addiction to the bottle and become a Christian is filled with a sense of rightness and hope.
The novel is paced well and easy to follow. It is an enjoyable book and is recommended to the readers of action and suspense fiction. I look forward to Julie Caves next book. Anita Tiemeyer, www.ChristianBookPreviews.com
