The Captain's Mission



A demonstration turned deadly.

When one of his soldiers is killed by live ammunition during what was supposed to be a simple training exercise. Captain Phil Thibodeaux wants answers. Even if it means working with the Criminal Investigation Division that seems certain to pin the blame on him. But after CID agent Kelly McQueen defends his conduct, Phil realizes that there's more to the dedicated agent than meets the eye. Maybe she's someone he can trust, after all. And he'll need someone to rely on as investigations lead him to doubt everyone else -- even his own soldiers.

My Review:

What a gripping read!!!! Once I cracked the book open I pretty much read it right through in one sitting. I just couldn't put it down. Giusti knows how to build tension, strategically divulging clues one at a time while she gradually cranks up the action until an explosion of suspense sent me reeling at the end. Brilliantly done.

Phil and Kelly's slow burn romantic development added its own unique blend of toe-curling suspense as well. Definitely a winning combination and one you don't want to miss. This is Love Inspired Suspense at its best.

  8. I can still remember the "day" I read Debby's debut novel. I was so impressed that I've looked for everything of hers since. She's an awesome spirit-filled woman, too. Almost daily, I read and pray "The Writer's Prayer" she wrote. I recommend it to all Christian writers.
