Distortion – Terri Blackstock

About this Book

Juliet Cole’s life has been dismantled by the murder of her husband. She doesn’t know who—or what—to trust when everything she has believed to be true about her marriage has been a lie. When Juliet Cole’s husband of fifteen years is gunned down in a dark parking lot before her eyes, she thinks it was a random shooting. Devastated and traumatized, she answers hours of questioning. When she’s finally allowed to return home to break the news to her boys, she hears a voicemail that takes the situation from a random shooting to a planned, deliberate attack. “Mrs. Cole, we know you have access to the supply and the money. If you don’t turn fifty million over to us and give us the codes, then you’ll be burying more family members.”

Suddenly, Juliet realizes that she and her children could be in danger. She teams up with her sisters and PI Michael Hogan to dig into the sham Bob has been living for years. The more she learns, the worse the betrayal. A drug trafficking history, a fortune in cash, and a secret family all emerge to turn Juliet’s belief system on its head, and threaten the things she loves. Are she and her sisters skilled enough as sleuths to get to the truth?


About the Author

My Review

Once again the author starts the action early and keeps it going until the very end. In the opening pages we see Juliet witness the murder of her husband of 15 years. As a typical woman thrown into a situation like this she is shell-shocked, but soon realizes her world was about to spin out of control.

One of the things I like about  a series like this, is the development of the characters. In book one, Juliet was the hesitate one of the group when it came to the idea of being a PI. She was content to be the office person. In this book she is front and center to protect her family. I really liked Juliet in this book. She questioned everything she ever believed as she dealt with her grief and the grief of her sons as well as coming to terms with her husbands past.

The ending totally surprised me and I’m looking forward to where the author takes us in this series.

I love to read, especially mystery books. Though in the past couple of years I've been a part of the ACFW Book Club and have found some wonderful writers. It's been fun to interact with authors.

  1. I’m currently reading “Written on the Wind by Judith Pella. I’ve never read any of Terri Blackstock’s books and I would love to because I love reading Christian Mystery stories.

Welcome! I appreciate your thoughts!
