Why does Lisa write Christian fiction? 
Jesus shared primarily through parables and was one of the greatest story tellers of all times. Yet His words had far greater meaning then a simple story. This is my desire for my own stories. To not only entertain though genres like romance, suspense, and international intrigue, but to challenge, encourage, and ultimately share the love of Christ through the written word. To bring hope to a desperate world.

I received this book courtesy of  Revell blogging program  in exchange for my unbiased opinion. I was not required to give a positive review.

My Thoughts:
Once again, Lisa has captured my attention in an intriguing tale of mystery, suspense, danger as both the police department and the cartel seek Michael's life. 

I was first introduced to Michael Hunt in book two of this series, where unknown to his family, he was working undercover. They had already grieved his death and life was moving on. Little did they realize they were in for a big surprise and one of the most intense crime solving they had yet to do. 

Michael comes from a family of cops - several generations worth. His father and sister are cops, as well as his best friend. But his disappearance has left more questions than answers, and his reputation is very tarnished. As he closes in on the cartel's leader La Sombra with his undercover work, his mission is becoming more dangerous by the minute. It won't be long til he is found out, but his chances of survival are not good no matter which way he turns. The department is also full of dirty cops who will not hesitate to kill him if it means saving their tails. 

Olivia Hamilton, daughter of business owner Antonio Valez - leader of the Cartel De Rey, has no idea what her father is mixed up in. She and her brother have returned to the Island for Christmas break. As a reporter, someone has been feeding her information and she intends to find out how much of it is really true. But what she is about to discover, is biting off way more than she can chew. 

What I love about this story...
Michael and Olivia, both, have a deep faith in God. As they risk their lives, and are in constant danger, they constantly fall back on how important it is to trust the Lord with every area of their lives. Both are control freaks in a sense. They have always felt the need to care for people, especially those close to them. Although Michael as a cop and Olivia as a reporter are in two completely different fields and lifestyles, their mission is the same - see justice served and help the world become a better place to live. 

While both are now in over their heads, they learn to trust each other, and most importantly learn to trust God even more. 

Lisa has an amazing way of bringing all this together, while keeping you at the edge of your seat. She is constantly throwing in a little twist about the time you feel like you have got the story figured out. I enjoyed the second book in this series immensely - which is what drew me to this one. But ... if you haven't read any of the other books in this series, you can still read this one, and keep up with what is going on and who the characters are. Read in sequence, you will get a better knowledge of Michael's family and how they fit in, but read alone, you will still be able to enjoy this novel.
