Mike McConnell is missing. Did he murder his own family? With the help of angelic intervention, Mike's friend Jeb races to find him before the FBI does---and discovers redemption and grace in the process. 320 pages, softcover from Multnomah.

This book is an easy read and suspensfull at times. It also raises some very interesting issues about God's plan for our lives, the power of love, and true forgiveness. On the other hand, some of the characters where one-dimensional, even sappy at times. Also, the ending felt very preachy and unrealistic to me.

I wish I'd found this book when it first came out!What a thriller & story of faith.It's a story of a friend's love & determination,of forgiveness & of redemption.The book reminded me to take every opportunity to be a witness for Him & to mend fences -- we never know when we'll run out of time.

A great book. Was recommended to me by the gentleman who owns the Christian bookstore in town. He knows I like suspense and told me it was one of the best he had read in a long time and I must agree with him. Truly moving!

I give this book a 5 because of how it blessed me. It taught a lesson about prayer that I needed to learn. I'm passing it around to friends and they have been equally blessed. Blessings to Kathy and her family in Tyler, Texas. Can't wait for the sequel!
