The second in Blackstock’s Intervention series is a fast-paced thriller. Some unrealistic situations distract and pull the reader out of the adventure, but the portrayal of the dangers of drug abuse and the effects after rehab are fascinating.
Barbara Covington’s daughter Emily is almost ready to graduate from her year-long stay in rehab. It’s been a long but worthwhile journey. Then Barbara’s 15-year-old son Lance meets a pregnant meth addict and tries to help her, but things go terribly wrong. The girl has her baby and leaves it in Lance’s car, then accuses him of kidnapping. Can Barbara help Lance while preparing to welcome Emily home again? (ZONDERVAN, Feb., 324 pp., $19.99)
