Genre: Inspirational, Mystery/Thriller/Suspense

RT Rating

After her divorce, Annie Kingston moves to quiet Grove Landing,
California, looking for peace for herself and her two children.
Then the woman across the street is murdered. Because of her
background in art, Annie is asked by detectives to interview the
only witness--the woman's twelve-year-old daughter--in order to
draw a composite of the murderer. But Annie has no prior
experience in interviewing a witness, especially one this
traumatized. What if she taints the girl's fragile memory and the
drawing is skewed? The detectives could be sent down the wrong
path, while the killer freely walks the streets.

At the strangely hope-filled funeral of her Christian neighbor,
Annie considers the claims of Christ. Is God real, and will He
help track down a murderer? Divine intervention may be the only
hope, but Annie may have to put her life in His hands to find
out.

Collins' deft hand for suspense brings on the shivers in this
first of the Hidden Faces series. A couple of elements were
formulaic, though well done. (Apr., 400 pp., $12.99)
