Another 5 stars for Christy Barritt – This is a clean thriller that will keep you reading “just one more chapter”!
Two families intertwined. One family is the victim and the other is the law. Senior Townsend pursues Madison’s father who is convicted of murdering young women. He’s known as the Good Samaritan. Townsend’s son tries to solve the current day killings of young women connected to Madison’s family and even attempts on Madison’s life. This is a good mystery from start to finish.
Spine tingling. Powerful. Full of mystery Really good. I cannot wait to read the next one and see what happens next.
This book was really interesting and I liked the characters and sibling dynamics. It wasn’t cheesy like some Christian mysteries are, and I would definitely recommend this series!
Fantastic book!! I will say the valiant is a lot more sinister, twisted, and deranged than a lot of the other books in this series and I had a hard time reading some of the thoughts and actions of the killer. I definitely couldn’t read this one at night. This is one character whose mind that I’d rather never dive into. So if you’re sensitive to things like that…just beware. That being said, this book points you toward God, is very well written, and I cannot wait for the next book to come out!!!
This Fog Lake series just keeps getting better. So many secrets to unravel, so many suspects. I love the Tennessee setting, a nice change from the barrier islands of the southeast coast.
