Definitely an enjoyable read and a welcome addition to the genre, Fear No Evil is a good choice for a low-key suspense novel. This a well-written story with solid characters and seeds of faith throughout. However, flushing out the setting more and a less-predictable ending would have made it even better. And although the characters do provide a good amount of realism, with such a mysterious and beautiful background as Louisiana, readers might hope for more sights and smells to bring the book to life.

Lincoln returned to his hometown to care for his ailing father. His job as a police officer bring him face to face him with Jade, a young social worker who will do anything to protect a mother and child from an abusive home. As Lincoln's feelings for Jade grow, she becomes a deadly target and he will do anything it takes to expose her attackers. (B&H Books, Aug., 344 pp., $14.99)
