Judgment Day – Modern Fiction
By Wanda L. Dyson
Suzanne Kidwell is an investigative reporter with shoddy research tactics who is about to get herself in major trouble. She finds herself framed for murder and stuck in jail. Suzanne’s lawyer recommends hiring an excellent private investigator to look for evidence to prove Suzanne innocent and find the person responsible for the murder. It turns out the best PI for the case is Suzanne’s ex-fiancé, Marcus Crisp and his family fortune heiress partner, Alex Fisher-Hawthorne. As the investigation begins, they uncover pieces of a black-market operation that puts all of their lives in danger. Will they survive long enough to interlock the puzzle pieces and bring the perpetrators to justice? “I’m Suzanne Kidwell. And this is Judgment Day.”
I thought this story was well written and entertaining; however I didn’t find myself engrossed in the book. I found the character development to be a little lacking which I think contributed to the detachment from the book. The storyline was understandable with twists and turns. I think faith in God should have been a much bigger focus in the book. It was mentioned here and there, but not expounded upon. The main character Suzanne is pictured as an egotistical woman who is totally self-reliant. Toward the end of the book she has a slight change of heart, but I feel the author missed an opportunity to have her find real faith in God. Overall, I would give the book a B - good read, but not a must read.
I received a free e-book copy of this novel from the publisher for my honest review of the book.
