Book Review: Pieces of Light

30 Jan
Washington D.C. is gripped with fear at the hands of a deadly serial bomber. Religious icons and buildings are being targeted at an alarming rate, and lives are being lost. Former FBI agent Dinah Harris begins consulting on the case, sorting through both clues and unexpected challenges, professionally and personally, determined to find the kiey to solving this crisis.The past impacts the present as a troubled family and a marriage fall slowly apart from the burdens of guilt and the pain of domestic violence. Confronting doubt and troubling questions of faith, Dinah will struggle to triumph in a story that highlights the redemptive grace of Christ to change even the most broken or evil life.Through the painstaking investigation, it becomes clear that the bomber is angry at God and on a twisted mission as an avenging ‘angel of justice.’ Dinah focuses on the bombers disturbingly humanistic motives, while authorities race to stop the violence. Will the bomber complete his deadly goal or can Dinah save the next victim – and herself – before time runs out?

The final chapter is this thrilling fiction trilogy!

Julie Cave divides her time between being a wife, a mother, and an author in Brisbane, Australia with her family. Her newest book is the compelling sequel to Deadly Disclosures and The Shadowed Mind.

My Impressions:

The last installment of Julie Cave’s Dinah Harris mystery series, Pieces of Light, left me wanting more — more great mysteries by this talented author! Cave has again penned a well-researched psychological mystery this time featuring the effects of abuse on children.  A serial bomber is targeting churches in the DC area with the aim of getting his message out — stop helping the abusers and focus on their victims.  The continuing story of Senator David Winter is also wrapped up with a very satisfying conclusion.  And Dinah continues to grow in her Christian faith, relying on small group accountability to keep her from alcohol.

I recommend anyone who likes a mystery that makes them think and has a very positive Christian message to pick up all three of these books by Julie Cave.  I just hope that Cave has more books in the works.  I would especially like reading more books starring Dinah Harris.
