From the publisher:
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?

My Review:
Deadly Disclosures is very impressive for a debut novel. While I'm not a huge mystery/suspense fan this book grabbed me and didn't let me go.

FBI agent Dinah Harris is tortured by the death of her husband and young son which has driven her into a deep depression and alcoholism. As she struggles with virtually every part of her life including her job and a very mysterious murder case, as a reader I really felt her pain and her desire for a release. It goes straight to your core. On top of such a terrifically real and flawed character the plot is excellent and very thought provoking with debates on creationism vs. evolution. Admittedly this is not a book I would normally pick up especially since there's not a hint of romance but I am certainly glad that I had the chance to read this book. I recommend it to readers, male and female, who enjoy a terrific mystery, with corporate and government cover ups, murder, and believable characters. I look forward to reading what happens next in the life of Agent Dinah Harris in The Shadowed Mind this Fall!

  4. Mystery/suspense is one of my favorite types of books to read. This one sounds good. Nice review!

  5. I do enjoy a good mystery/suspense, although I haven't read many with a Christian angle. I may have to give this one a shot.
