Publisher's Summary

This rape case is different from most: the victim is more than willing to testify and there's ample evidence to put the suspect behind bars. But one thing gnaws at Detective Larry Millsaps - young and beautiful Melissa Nelson knows too much about the evidence needed to convict her attacker. Millsaps's investigation unearths the suspect's brutal track record, but also some stunning revelations about Melissa's own past. Caught in a deadly conflict between the ironies of the law and the demands of his Christian convictions, the detective finds himself protecting Melissa - even as evidence mounts that could imprison not only an inhuman criminal, but also the woman Millsaps has come to love.

Good but short

This was a good book, but WAY too short for an audible credit. It was 1/5th the length of the first book in the series.

Seems like a shortened version of a book

The first book was 10 hrs + narrated. This one is less than 3. The story seems fast and with less details than Terri normally writes. I almost wonder if this is a shortened version of the book than a full book.

Short story for price

Story was short for a 14.00 credit. It was good. I didn’t like the music that comes on during the reading of the book

Love Terri Blackstock books!!

Couldn’t put the book down. Always a great story and love the fact I can read these books & not have to deal with bad language nor immortal sexual descriptions/acts. I’m also thankful for the Christian thoughts always included in Terri’s books.

LOOOOOOVED THIS BOOK

Short and sweet. Not remotely corny. Maybe a bit preachy at some points, but, I'm a Christian, so I didn't mind so much.

Loved it!!!!

OH, my goodness! Incredible in all ways. The book, itself, was great. The narration was unbelievable. One of the best we have listened to. My husband and I travel a lot and occupy the many hours by listening to Christian fiction. At the beginning we looked at each other and chuckled at the men's voices. We loved the female and male narrators. They made the story come alive. Thanks for a wonderful listening experience. So much better that a female trying to sound like a man or male trying to sound like female. Great!!!!!

OK story / OK narration

The story wrapped up way too quickly. The characters were in love too quickly... Not realistic. One of the voices for the cop was redoculus.

Not bad, but too short for an audible credit

I enjoyed this book of T Blackstock’s as I have enjoyed all of hers that I’ve read/heard. This one was too short to be a audible book worth s credit. We should get two books for 1 credit since it is so short. But I did enjoy the characters and the storyline as well. Thank you
