For those who love books with a message of faith

Christian fiction that packs a real punch

  • Sep 27, 2010

Judgment Day by Wanda Dyson is a fast-paced thrill ride with lots of twists and turns. Suzanne Kidwell has achieved some notoriety with her television show Judgment Day, but after the mysterious death of her fiance, Guy Mandeville, she's accused of playing fast and loose with her stories and not doing enough research. When she is framed for murder, she hires former boyfriend Marcus Crisp, whose heart she broke in college, and his partner Alexandria to find out who wants to take her down. Marcus and Alex take the case with no idea what they are getting themselves into, and as the bodies pile up and the secrets come out, they just may discover that the truth is more than they can bear. Dyson's writing is full of thrills and chills, and frighteningly believable. The novel is Christian fiction, but the faith is never in your face. Marcus, Alex, and partner Razz are fantastic characters with complicated backstories and plenty of potential; I hope that Dyson uses them again soon.

“The Queen of High-Octane Suspense has done it again! Wanda Dyson takes us on a roller-coaster ride worthy of a whiplash warning. High suspense, romantic tension, and even comic relief will keep you riveted and turning pages as fast as you can read. It’s all in there!”
—Bonnie S. Calhoun, owner and publisher ofChristian Fiction Online Magazine

Judgment Dayis packed with action and adventure. Private detective duo Marcus Crisp and Alexandria Fisher-Hawthorne are fascinating and keep the story rolling with their wit, sarcasm, and teamed-up tactical skills reminiscent of many favorite action-adventure movies. Dyson has penned a great suspense with strong Christian themes inJudgment Day!”

“From page one I couldn’t put this book down. Suzanne is a highly flawed individual in the fight of her life. When she’s forced to call in Alex and Marcus to unravel who’s trying to frame her, they instead unravel an evil plot that ends with harvested organs. The pacing is tight, the characters people I want to know, and the plot so intricate I literally could not stop reading.
