Suddenly, Maven, a widow on medical leave, finds herself the foster mother for this mystery child.
Maven has never had children or been part of the foster system. However, her social worker friend Lizzie, believes Maven and this child are perfect for each other. Plus, the boy's erratic behavior has worn down everyone else.
Has she bitten off more than she can chew?
The boy, who Maven dubs Moses, screams and cries when touched. He arranges his toys in a perfect circle, and sits in the middle not talking. Moses sleeps very little, and screams most of the night.
At first, Maven thinks Moses might be autistic, be in a short time, it appears he is dealing with the aftereffects from a severely stressful situation. As time goes on, Moses begins to talk a bit, and allows hugs sometimes. And Maven falls in love with him.
Will a life be lost, or more than one?
Suddenly, Moses disappears from Maven's home. She is distraught, and worried. The police believe he left of his own accord, but Maven doubts that. Next door neighbor Paul, a policeman and a good friend, agrees to help Maven try to find Moses on their own. Their search for the truth uncovers a very disturbing situation. It also turns into a dangerous, if not deadly, predicament.
This fast moving, 147 page book, contains suspense along with romance, and is written from a Christian point of view. The darker the situation becomes, the more the hope of Christ is brought into the story, and I found that very uplifting.
There is not any objectionable language in the story. However this book does deal with some dark situations, which might be inappropriate for young readers. Some characters and events from another story are referred to, but Deadly Intent can be enjoyed without reading previous works. I recommend this 5-star book to anyone who enjoys mysterious suspense stories with a Christian worldview.
