"Making history." That's what Millicent Hollander thinks once she learns she's being considered as the new Chief Justice of the United States. She'll be the first female to hold the position. Millie knows it's on account of her consistency in political matters and assures those considering her that nothing will change once she is appointed to her new position. Before it's official, Millie is injured in an accident and while visiting her mother to recover, she meets pastor Jack Holden. While the political world is watching and scheming, Millie and Jack form a truce. Author James Scott Bell presents an incredible political suspense tale and an undeniable legal brief for the existence of God. The trial scenes are engaging while the intrigue is so believable it's worrisome. DEADLOCK (4) is certainly a page turner with a great heroine and hero. (Oct., 352 pp., $12.99)
