This book had more twists and turns than a roller coaster! Seriously, several times I had to go back and reread different parts because I wondered how I had missed certain things!
The novel begins with a scene from the end of the book so from the get go the reader is wondering how mild Ian Connor could end up in a scene like that! And then the author unravels the story, with bits from the past, and dreams, and even from the view points of different characters. What a suspenseful novel – with hit men, armed robberies, shootings, etc.
I liked how this book was a clean suspenseful novel – no profanity or sex. But I will say I was expecting there to be some mention of God, since the publisher is Bethany House, but I did not find any. I do highly recommend Fatal Trust as a clean, suspenseful legal thriller but wouldn’t say it is Christian Fiction. I received a copy of this book from the publisher. I am freely writing a review – all thoughts and opinions are my own.
