    When his home is broken into, Jack Crittendon does all he can to

    When his home is broken into, Jack Crittendon does all he can to reassure his wife that it was an isolated incident and that she had no need to fear. However, when their wedding picture turns up missing, it appears things are more sinister than they first appeared. As Crittendon investigates who is targeting his family, he struggles to hold onto his faith and not to turn back to his violent past. Along with protecting his family, Crittendon also finds himself involved with an investigation into the apparent suicide of a missing pastor that is also a former acquaintance. Will Crittendon be able to protect his family and hold onto his beliefs? Will he be able to find the missing pastor before it is too late?

    Fear Has a Name is a must read. The novel is filled with the perfect amount of suspense and narrative. It keeps you wanting more. The characters are true to life and very believable, pushing the plot along, making them more than names on a page. The way that Crittendon and his wife handle being stalked accurately represents the different reactions that victims often experience, including the advantages and disadvantages of owning a gun for self-protection. The story causes the reader to evaluate how far they are willing to go to protect themselves. The novel also addresses the problem of fraud and scandal within churches, and the repercussions of making those suffering from depression feel like they are less than a mentally healthy individual. Overall, this is a wonderfully well written novel that not only tells a story, but also causes the reader to think about today’s problems.
