Overview

A beautiful yet tough woman working in a beautiful yet tough setting, Brannon Callahan is a search and rescue helicopter pilot for the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Strong faith and a decorated history of service have kept her one step ahead of on-the-job dangers, but there’s no precedent for what’s about to happen. After a blizzard takes down a small plane carrying U.S. Marshal Roark Holland (already haunted by a recent tragedy), Brannon must save him in more ways than one and safeguard the donor heart he’s transporting to a government witness on the edge of death. Otherwise the largest child trafficking ring in history—with shocking links from Thailand to Tennessee—will slip further away into darkness along the Appalachian Trail.

    Great read!

    I really enjoyed Deliver Us From Evil. Suspenseful and romantic, but also clean, which is hard to find in fiction writing now-a-days. This is the first in the series. I enjoy Robin Caroll's books and highly recommend all of them!

    Hard to Put Down!!!

    Ms. Caroll weaves her plot through the viewpoints of many of the characters, drawing them together to interact and then separating them to explain different facets of the action. The characters were complete with hangups and flaws as well as expertise, and the chemistry between them, romantic and otherwise, was downright pliable.

    This is no comfortable little whodunit. There is no "tada" at the end when the culprit is discovered. Instead, the reader learns of the identity a little at a time and grows to intensely dislike the person by the time the story reaches the climax. Furthermore, the subject matter made me squirm. I found more than once that I had to stop reading and give my eyes a thorough drying!

    But then, this type of book isn't supposed to make the reader comfortable. It's supposed to keep the reader on the edge of the seat and Deliver Us From Evil did that for me from the very first page! I also enjoyed learning about some of the research topics that Ms. Caroll shared in the book. She even added Bible Study or Book Study discussion questions to the back of the book and a website research guide for all of her topics!

    All in all, this is a great read!

    Suspenseful Who Done It

    I read Deliver Us From Evil and loved the action, adventure, humor and spiritual thread in it. I anxiously awaited the review copy of In the Shadow of Evil.

    Layla is a female contractor following in her father's foot steps after his untimely death. Layla has been nominated for a building award she's worked hard to achieve. Tragedy strikes the House of Hope home she entered into the contest. The shadow of evil clouds her chances of winning the award when the house burns to the ground. Crazy thing about the fire is the body they discover among the ashes. The CSI team scrambles to disclose the body's identity and glean for clues that will uncover the murderer!

    Detective Maddox and his partner arrive at the burned house and see a body. Because of Maddox's experience and the clues he discovers in the rubble, he suspects arson, and is convinced Layla set the fire. He's certain he'll find the proof he needs to expose a building rebound scam he knows is operating in this city. Layla's case adds one more piece to the puzzle to help uncover unethical practices to creatively fulfill the supply shortage and reveal the mastermind behind the scheme.

    Layla doesn't like how slow the detectives are going to "prove her innocence". She definitely feels they've stamped her guilty already. So, she sets out to play detective herself. Things start to heat up as she pokes around. Another house is set on fire and she's the suspect again. Could she let go and let God work on her behalf?

    This is an intriguing story set in the Louisiana, Bayou based on the real-life fallout of the U.S. economy plus devastation caused by multiple hurricanes along the southern coast. I enjoyed the tough, yet tender Layla and the emotionally wounded, chauvinistic Detective Maddox. I liked how this author showed God working in their lives for His glory and their good, when they let Him! I liked the believable characters and the spiritual struggle they went though on their way to giving and accepting forgiveness; of course I liked the drama, mystery and suspense as well. I'm looking forward to the next action adventure story from Robin Caroll.

    This book really made me stop and think and I like that in a novel.

    I don't need to repeat what other reviewers have said better than I can. But I have lived a sheltered life. I cannot comprehend the evil that lies outside my community. Deliver Us From Evil will make the reader aware of a very real very evil exploitation of children right within our righteous United States. It is time to wake up and be willing to make a difference.

    First in new series is full of action

    Deliver Us from Evil by Robin Carroll is the first book in an unnamed series about about law enforcers in the South. Brannon Callahan is good at her job as a search and rescue helicopter pilot in the Great Smoky National Park. She's called in to rescue a downed chopper carrying a US marshal named Roark Holland who is bringing a donor heart to the only witness who can bring down a child trafficking ring. They end up on the run for their lives after a sniper takes out her chopper and kills another pilot and an EMT. I was a bit disappointed in the villain; he was obvious from his first appearance on the page (he was smoking in a Christian book, hello!), and many of the other plot points were equally obvious. Brannon and Roark's relationship is the saving grace of the story as they each struggle to let go of previous pain and fear and come together. I hope that in the sequel, Fear No Evil, Carroll has given more time to character and plot development. Her nail-biting action scenes will keep readers turning pages until the very end.

    "Deliver Us From Evil" by Robin Caroll

    Robin's novel, Deliver Us From Evil, has death-defying moments, along with some romance, that keep you reading into the wee hours of the morning. A helicopter crash has stranded U.S. Marshall Roark, haunted by a recent tragedy, who is delivering a donor heart to a Federal witness who can decipher information of a major child trafficking ring. Brannon, who is the search and rescue (SAR) helicopter pilot who is out to find the U.S. Marshall in the Smokey Mountains National Park, has her own set of issues that keep popping up. The tension between them is palpitating throughout all the plot twists in the book, even in places you don't expect!

    The storyline brings out the drama of SAR and the horrors of child trafficking, along with the travesty of justice, in a way that opens your eyes to the plight of this horrific dilemma. It will give you a more healthy respect for the law enforcement and government officials who risk their lives for our safety and the children caught up in child trafficking.

    This is a powerful book that opened my eyes to the vastness of child trafficking today! Here are some sites the author used for facts, but can also be used if you want to become involved. One could `Google' child trafficking to find others, but use caution on all the sites.

    1. www.lirs.org Do a search under "child trafficking."

    2. www.childtrafficking.org

    3. www.msnbc.msn.com/id/4038249/

    Ranger to the Rescue..

    Crimes against children are the most heinous and often hidden deep in the criminal underworld. Robin Caroll's portrayal is written with striking realism and heartbreaking consequences. Trust and faith in God is put to extreme testing. Physical trials, emotional trauma, and death take their toll.

    The characters are easy to visualize and blend in an unusual mix of villains verses heros. The way the story was broken up with time/location notations was distracting. I was a bit lost with the "helicopter pilot lingo" and other unclear acronyms. The quoting of scripture for support between friends flowed okay but seemed a bit excessive.

    The overall writing was captivating and the story line was strong and driven. The challenges were realistic and reflective of today's struggles. Suspenseful, captivating, and a good read.

    I Also Recommend:

    Should Be on Everyone's Reading List!

    Roark Holland is a U.S. Marshall that has been assigned to travel with and guard a donor heart from North Carolina to Tennessee. Everything hinges on delivering the heart in time for federally protected comatose witness. On the way to the hospital, the helicopter flies into a blizzard and goes down. Just before crashing, Brannon Callahan, a search and rescue pilot for the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, makes contact with them, and goes out with her partner to find them. She knows everything hinges on getting this heart to the witness as quickly as possible. He holds the key to a huge child trafficking, and if he dies, so does the hope of breaking up the ring.

    My comments:

    Although Robin Caroll has authored eight books before "Deliver Us From Evil", this is the first I have read by her, and I promise you, it certainly won't be the last. I thoroughly enjoyed the story line. It was filled with suspense that kept me up way into the night reading, making it nearly impossible to put down.

    I enjoyed the characters. Roark was every bit what I would have expected from a Marshall, and I adored Brannon and her partner, Lincoln. They are a fantastic team and their way of keeping themselves grounded in bad situations was brilliant. Their messages of faith, love and courage, woven throughout the story were well done and meaningful.

    I was very pleased with way the child trafficking was handled. You were made to realized the horror of of the situation, and the description was just enough, without too much information - giving it realism without being too graphic. Because of this, I did rate the book for older teens.

    "Deliver Us From Evil" should be on everyone's reading list. This powerful story of the horrors of human trafficking packs a punch that will leave you looking at your comfortable and quite world in a whole new light.
