Distortion by Terri Blackstock

Publication: March 11, 2014

Publisher: Zondervan Publishing

A husband s lies can have deadly consequences. When Juliet Cole s husband of fifteen years is murdered before her eyes, she thinks it was a random shooting. Devastated and traumatized, she answers hours of questioning, then returns home to break the tragic news to her boys. But a threatening voicemail takes this from a random shooting to a planned, deliberate attack. Juliet realizes that she and her children are in danger too, unless she meets the killers demands. But as she and her sisters untangle the clues, her husband s dark secrets come to light. The more she learns, the more of her life is dismantled. Was her husband an innocent victim or a hardened criminal?"

Distortion begins on dramatic note when Juliet Cole witnesses her husband being murdered in the parking lot of a moving van company.
While Juliet and her sons attempt to come to terms with his death a voicemail eludes to something much more complicated than just murder.

It was easy to like Juliet and get pulled into her life. She isn’t easily scared and is very determined to find out the truth no matter what.

There are some aspects of religion and faith in the story. It’s not so much were I felt overwhelmed by it though. I liked it…and found it to be very appropriate in relation to the story.

I am always up for a good mystery/suspense story, so I was happy to read it.  This story makes you question how well you think you know someone. I mean what would you do if you found out the person you love and devoted your whole life to was keeping secrets and telling lies? It’s a hard issue to deal with I’m sure. I was very interested in finding out the truth and the reasons behind everything.

RATING: 4 out of 5.
