Book Review: Judgment Day
Suzanne, an obnoxious, self-absorbed TV reporter gets framed for murder, and is forced to hire a detective--who happens to be an ex-boyfriend she once betrayed--to exonerate her. As the detective and his beautiful assistant dig deeper into the case they discover an organ-harvesting plot that goes to the highest levels of Washington DC society.
Thus the plot of Judgment Day, A Novel by Wanda L. Dyson. I found this book to be an engaging read. The plot seldom drags, and for the most part the characters are well-developed.
Thought billed as Christian fiction, the Christianity of the novel was incidental, at best. Other than the fact that the heroes of the story were billed as Christians, and indeed never bedded each other or anybody else, the overt biblical worldview expressed in the novel was limited to a couple short paragraphs. Those paragraphs could be removed and it would have little or no effect on the overall plot.
To summarize, Judgment Day is a good read, an excellent contribution to the world of detective fiction--with some incidental Christian overtones.
Tragically necessary disclaimer for the avoidance of frivolous litigation: This book review was written in return for a free copy of the book from Multnomah. The author was in no way pressured to write a positive review.
