I am a fan of Dee Henderson and came across a couple of the O'Malley books at a garage sale several years ago. The Negotiator was not one so I was eager to get this. It was everything I expected and enjoyed getting back into the series.
As a hostage negotiator, Kate OMalley lives life on the edge. When shes thrust into the center of an investigation in the aftermath of an explosion that killed over 200 people, she struggles to maintain her calm resolve. One of her siblings springs a dark secret on her and promptly declares she cant yet share the news. Under all that pressure, will Kate uncover the truth before the bomber comes after her and the people she loves? Will she learn to trust God before its too late?
The OMalley Chronicles is one of my favorite series of all time, and reading The Negotiator by Dee Henderson for the third (at least) time only served to further cement that. Suspense, action, drama, comedic moments this book has it all. The characters are so rich and realistic theyre easy to relate to. And the adventures that find them! You wont lose interest in these books.
What I really love about these stories is the principles woven into each one. At their core theyre all about finding Gods love in a personal way and then sharing Him with others. Beyond that, each book focuses on its own set of principles. The Negotiator worked with justice and mercyand the balance thats necessary for each to shine brightly.
I will never tire of this book or its companions. Have you given them a try yet?
Kate O'Malley is tops in hostage negotiating. She can go into a dangerousÃÂ situation and remain apparently detatched or even bored as she works to safely diffuse the problem. However, her life suddenly becomes chaotic and uncertain as the darkness of her past threatens her future. Dave Richman, an FBI agent, desperately wants to protect her; but she thinks she is capable of taking care of herself.
She is about to find out she is wrong. Will she open her heart to love and God?
I really enjoy Ms. Henderson's ability to bring the characters in her novels to life. The O'Malley series are a must read!
