Publisher's Description

When Officer Andy Myers met Loraine Phillips, he had no interest in her son. And he certainly never dreamed he'd respond to a call, finding that same boy in a pool of blood. Even more alarming was the father standing watch over his son's body. Myers had never seen a man respond to death-particularly the death of a child-in such a way. When the father is charged with murder and sentenced to death, he chooses not to fight but embrace it as God's will. Myers becomes consumed with curiosity for these strange beliefs. What follows is the story of the bond these two men share as they come to terms with the tragedy and the difficult choices each one must make.

Publisher's Weekly

In recent years, Baldwin (The Unusual Suspect) has put his acting career on the back burner in order to develop his Christian ministry. Not surprisingly, his foray into fiction writing is part detective movie and part sermon. Religious fiction sometimes sacrifices plot development to preach a message, and Baldwin, unfortunately, is unable to avoid this temptation. The lead character, Det. Andy Myers, responds to a call and finds a boy he knows who appears to have been brutally murdered. The boy's father, an ex-con and recent born-again Christian, does not seem to be fazed by his son's death, believing him to now be in a better place with God. Myers is appalled by the father's lack of emotion and goes on a crusade to make sure he is convicted of his son's murder. Myers is the most three-dimensional character in the book and is developed with some skill. But he is surrounded by a number of unbelievable figures who obfuscate an uneven plot that ultimately does not satisfy. (Nov. 5)Copyright 2008 Reed Business Information.

    Great story, but too much bad language for a Christian book.

    I was very disappointed in the language of this book, good story but it is not something we want on the church library shelves. I am returning it. Good story but needs cleaning up.

    This book is not for everyone as it does contain swearing and a depressing subject matter that some may find offensive, but if you enjoy reading a book with a surprise twist then this may be for you.I found it to be intriguing and wanted to keep reading to see if the resolution was what I expected. The beginning pulls you in, the middle is a bit tedious, and the end is a surprise, so it is worth reading through the slower sections. The author's give much attention to detail, as one would expect from a crime novel, and the voice of the novel is a bit confusing at first, but it is a good read it you hang in there.

    I was completely absorbed in the book from start to finish. I hope Stephen Baldwin will write more terrific Christian novels. I will buy them all.

    This book should not be classified as a Christian novel. The language and subject matter are worse than that in most secular novels. What a disappointment!
