The blurb says:
A husband’s lies can have deadly consequences. When Juliet Cole’s husband of fifteen years is murdered before her eyes, she thinks it was a random shooting. Devastated and traumatized, she answers hours of questioning, then returns home to break the tragic news to her boys. But a threatening voicemail takes this from a random shooting to a planned, deliberate attack. Juliet realizes that she and her children are in danger too, unless she meets the killers’ demands. But as she and her sisters untangle the clues, her husband’s dark secrets come to light. The more she learns, the more of her life is dismantled. Was her husband an innocent victim or a hardened criminal?
Distortion – out today! – is the second book in Terri Blackstock’s Moonlighters series. Although I haven’t read the first title in the series, Truth-Stained Lies, it didn’t seem to matter too much as I had no problems following the story. Throughout the book, the characters recall events from the previous book so that I could fill in the gaps.
Juliet and her sisters moonlight as private investigators. They are a very close-knit family who have had to shoulder more than their fair share of tragedies. In Distortion the siblings investigate the shooting of Juliet’s husband. It is a fast-paced story full of suspense, which Terri Blackstock successfully combines with Christian beliefs. She doesn’t shy away from characters who struggle with their faith and she handles this sensitively and authentically.
I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. There were a few unexpected twists, one of which I didn’t like as much but I would still recommend this book. I look forward to reading the next instalment in the Moonlighters series. First, however, I can’t wait to catch up on book one.
