when she identified the obsessive boyfriend of a co-worker
as the murderer of those in the jewelry store where she
worked. He was impressed with her personal strength feels
the loss when she leaves. Now he learns that she is
actually Amanda Granger, supposedly killed 8 years ago.

sisters, but Luke must convince Amanda to come in from the
cold. With a psychotic and/or professional killer on the
loose, with these men be able to find the killer or killers
and protect the women they love? Odds are that not all of
them will survive when the past and present collide.
Set in a mid-size city, it is easy for most readers to
relate to the officers' intense dedication to their friends
and job which is central to their decision to "protect and
serve". Ms. Henderson reveals a Christian perspective that
strengthens readers understanding of this dedication and
does not distract from her intense weaving of relationships
and plot. There is no preaching as the story reveals where
these heroes find their strength and dedication and where
they find the strength to go on when things go wrong. Like
any well written novel, readers will feel they can find the
same source of strength in their heart.
Readers of the O'Malley and True Hero series already know
that Ms. Henderson knows how to combine suspense and
Christian reality to provide reading that touches the
heart. For those who have enjoyed reading LaVyrle Spencer
for character's personal insights and tenderness, books by
Dee Henderson will find a place in your library.
