I just finished the most interesting book, "When The Devil Whistles" by Rick Acker. I read his previous book, "Blood Brothers" and just loved it, now with The Devil he has gone to a whole different direction and I like it. He takes us inside the world of whistle blowers who uncover contractors defrauding the government on contracts. They sue the contractors and then the Department of Justice steps in and goes after them and the whistle blower then gets a cut of the settlement. Very interesting and then Rick throws in some possible romance, international espionage, nuclear warheads and things really start to heat up. I love the fact that the characters are not perfect, even the Connor who is the Christian makes mistakes and doesn't always act like he should. Allie makes more than her share of mistakes and there are consequences - lots of them. Rick has a style that is engaging and full of energy - the subject matter was so unique that I couldn't put this book down until I finished. Excellent. Put this one on your list to get when it comes out in October!

Huh???

What is a book for $9.99 doing in the free listings? Well, at least it did not say free and then try to charge the ole credit card, as I have discovered frequently happens here.

    Awesome

    The mystery and suspense in this book was amazing. It constantly kept me guessing and i coupd not put it down. I highly reccomend it...good mystery, nice side story of romance, and nothing explicit.

    not too terribly christian

    i was concerned this story would be full of christian overtones but it had very little, probably just enough to be considered christian lit.

    pretty ok storyline
