Sue Duffy in her new book “Deeper Than Red” Book Three in the Red Returning Trilogy series published by Kregel Publications gives us a contemporary thriller
From the back cover: In this finale to the Red Returning trilogy, the plot to resurrect the Soviet Union takes a daring dive into the churning depths of the occult.
Twenty-year-old Tally Greyson isn’t consumed with her own education, social life, or career goals like most young women her age. Instead, she’s trying to save her mother from the grasp of a seductive cult. What Tally doesn’t realize is that in this community, there’s a far greater danger than any she can imagine–and she and her mother aren’t the only ones in its sights. There are plots brewing here that will threaten the fate of the world.
Concert pianist Liesl Bower has put her own dangerous past behind her, and in her Charleston family home, surrounded by those who love her, she’s preparing for a world concert tour with her dear friend, violinist Max Morozov. She thinks she’s safe; the man who tried to kill her is dead, his co-conspirators have been rounded up, and no one knows she had anything to do with saving the world from a new revolution.
That is, until a world leader is assassinated on the other side of the globe, setting events into motion that could kill the U.S. president, destroy Washington–and take everything and everyone Liesl loves with it. A madman is at the controls now. Even with the backup of the CIA and the dubious protection of a former KGB agent, this time they may all be too late. The heart-pounding final book in the Red Returning trilogy, Deeper Than Red goes further into the world of espionage and action than ever before, delving into the very worst powers of darkness, and pitting them against the light of faith, love, and forgiveness.
World domination, Assassination and religious cults are just some of what has to be dealt with in this chilling conclusion of this first-rate series. Political intrigue and suspense saturates “Deeper Than Red”. There is a madman who has the ability to take over, destroy the U.S. and restore the Soviet Union. It is all hands on deck as the small team has to band together to stay alive and defeat him. “Red Dawn Rising” is almost a non-stop action thriller. Ms. Duffy has put in so many twists and turns in her story that it would make a roller coaster envious. Max, Tally and Lisel are wonderful characters that we care about, want to see escape the danger that they find themselves in and want them to succeed. Sue Duffy has given us a unique thriller that will keep you on the edge of your chair as you read and flip pages as fast as possible. I recommend this book highly and look forward to more from this highly talented author!

I received a copy of DEEPER THAN RED by Sue Duffy from Kregel. It is the third book in the Red Returning series.
Sadly, I had only read one of the previous books, so I was confused on a few points. Overall, though, I enjoyed the story and look forward to catching up on the other book, especially if it is anything like this one. I understand it is a Russian Conspirator trilogy. I will also be rereading RED DAWN RISING now that I’ve finished this third installation.
Tally Greyson is trying to free her mother from a colony of… mediums. I was surprised at that. They are really more like a cult. Of course, the cult isn’t just a threat to Tally and her mother. It could harm the entire world. I hope you can see why I was hooked on this book. The other main characters in the book are Liesl Bower, a concert pianist, and Max Morozov, a violinist. I don’t read many novels where the leads are musicians, so this whet my appetite.
There is also romance, but overall this a suspenseful mystery. I had to keep turning the pages to see what happened next. I started reading it before bed, thinking I would do a chapter, sleep, and read the next chapter the following night. Instead, I stayed up way too late to keep going.

This book would be great for anyone who loves adventure or spy thrillers. There was much going on, with several different scenarios at the same time. The book has several settings in America, as well as Europe. The author did a very good job of telling about the characters and the back story behind each of them.
The main character is a pianist, Liesl, who was brought into the spy world by accident. She is a very brave heroine and does what she can to stand for what is right. She is a Christian and often prays for those around her.
One of the characters is entrenched in a spiritualist camp and her daughter is desperately trying to save her. Even though this is a fictional book, I know there are people who believe in psychics and have séances and this part of the story is very real. There is a Christian man in the camp who is watching out for the daughter and tries to get her to see the Light and help her save her mom.
The international ties in the book are between the president of the United States and his half brother, a Russian, who was an illegitimate son of his father.
There are many other characters who add to the excitement of this book. Two of my favorites are the father of Liesl and her husband's grandfather. They are a pair and do what they can to help protect Leisl.
I really enjoyed this book and want to go read the first two in the series! (reviewed by T.Lyles, teacher)
