Ten Plagues

Book Description:

 Join the breakneck chase through Chicago for a murderous maniac. As the victims begin piling up, detective Keren Collins’s spiritual discernment is on high alert. Will she capture the killer before another body floats to the surface? Ex-cop, now mission pastor Paul Morris has seen his share of tragedy, but nothing prepared him to be a murderer’s messenger boy. Will his old ruthless cop personality take over, leading him to the brink of self-destruction? Can Keren and Paul catch the killer before the corpse count reaches a perfect ten?

 My Review:

If you enjoy crime novels you will LOVE this book. It opens with action and suspense and that carries through the entire book.  Well written plot, characters with depth, twists and turns make this an enjoyable read.

Pastor P., a former cop, is drawn into a new murderous crime wave when "Pravus" taunts him to deliver a message to "let my people go" before something horrible happens.  Despite a desperate attempt, the horrible happens leading Pastor P. to meet Keren Collins, a detective with the ability to sense demons in people.  Together they try to stop Pravus as he stalks and wreaks terror in the homeless community attempting to re-enact the 10 plagues in the Old Testament.

This book highlights the struggle Paul has trying to reconcile his worldly desires (his cop side in which he just wants to get the bad guy at any cost) and his convictions to let go of the anger and be a more peaceful, loving man.  It also touches on Keren's spiritual gift of discernment.  While she uses it to aid her in her job and to help others find God, she is afraid to let her gift be known for fear that others will find her freaky.  And finally, we are reminded of God's grace and his gift of love and freedom.

This book has it all, mystery, suspense, crime, love, action, and so much more.  I loved the message and I loved the delivery.
