Boone Drake has a good life he has a good job in the police force, a wife and son who are the centre of his world. He has a great partner in Jack Keller, but then tragedy strikes and Boone's life will never be the same again. This is a hard hitting and highly emotional story, it is extremely well written, it is packed with detail and the reader is carried along on the train wreck that Boone's life has become. His well meaning family and friends just don't seem to understand that he wants to be left alone, without their well meaning interference. How Boone comes through all of his grief and comes to terms with how his life will never be the same is brilliantly dealt with in this story. As for the religious theme in the story, that did not bother me at all as it was intrinsic to the plot.
A highly emotional book very graphic at times but well worth reading.

Boone Drake seems to have everything going for him. A good career in the police force, a loving wife, and a lovely small child. He does part time youth work at the local church and both he and his wife are devout Christians. When something happens to test Boones faith, and his very existence will he ever recover both as a person or a cop.

I have no problem with the book having a heavy emphasis on the religious aspect, except where it made the book less believable. It was almost as if it could not be hard hitting and gritty due to religious slant. I think the overuse of swearing and slang can also ruin a book, but phrases such as the gang leaders met and exchanged foul words, or the conversation was unpleasant, removes the gritty nature of the book. It would have also been possible to get the moral message across without the need for large chunks of the bible to be reproduced. The book ends abruptly so I will be buying the second instalment as it created enough interest to want to know what happens next.
If you like crime books with no sex, swearing, or violence, you can read this with confidence.

I downloaded this book when it was free, would have been gutted if I'd paid for it! I like the crime genre, which is why I chose it, but it had a very weak story, and just didn't go anywhere. I almost gave up half way through, but kept going in the vain hope it would improve....it didn't! There were too many religious references for my liking, ( but thats maybe just me ), but the characterisation was poor, and by the end I just felt like I'd wasted my time bothering to finish it.

I got this for my hubby, who loves crime novels, but I guess I should have read the synopsis in full; there was mention of God twice in about 5 lines, so yes, this was yet another Christian novel. I don't get why amazon is thrusting so many of the latter on us via its Free Top 100 e-books - is it because Halloween is coming and beliefs/souls may need shoring up?! Are they secretly colluding with evangelists to make the world a better place via the power of the written word? Sorry, but for me this didn't work.

I skim-read this tale before deleting it, and it starts off too sickly sweet for you not to know that something is bound to go wrong: the male lead, Boone, has it all - perfect wife and son, perfect marriage, perfect home, perfect job, until his wife and child die (admittedly, it's very harrowing, as he has to make the decision to let his wife die) and he falls to pieces. Boone leads such a clean, Christian life yet has to deal with so much pain and loss, that if anything, this book might put any reader off God i.e. why should one person who is so good have to endure so much pain and loss if God is merciful?? I consider myself a decent, non church-going Christian, but I found this too much to handle.

Anyway, with the help of his new cop partner and his new role, and his pastor and an ex-gangland baddie, Boone finds God amongst all of the tragedy and pain... Far too preachy for me to read this in full, and hubby who's an atheist, would have been wondering if I was trying to convert him by thrusting this under his nose. Via this book, we're also educated in the evils of the demon drink, with Boone getting drunk after just a small amount of booze; yes, I know that he was down and depressed, but come on, he was a hardened cop and well-built, so this didn't quite ring true.

Bought this because I am into thrillers and especially looking for authors I have not read before. However if I wanted a piece of Christian propaganda I would not be looking at a thriller. I managed to finish this book, but only because I refused to give up hoping that it would at some point deliver the goods, which it certainly fails to do. I did skip about 30 pages of the book at one point as all it was religious nonsense which added nothing to the "plot" (I did go back and read them later to determine if I did miss something.)
Not a writer I will be reading again!

I wish I had read your reviews before I bought this rubbish. I don't even like saying that any book is rubbish, but I can count on one hand the number of books I haven't been able to finish, and this is one of them. It's basically a religious/Christian novel, which I was in no way expecting. Every second page has references to god, and there are bible quotes littered all over the place. The characters are one-dimensional and I felt no connection to any of them whatsoever. After slogging through more than half of it, there was still no plot to speak of only the main "characters" (I use that term lightly) struggle with his faith. That's fine if that's the kind of book you are after, but I thought this was a crime novel. Half way thorugh, and there is still no crime story. Avoid like the plague if you are looking for a crime novel/thriller genre.
