Title: Words of Conviction
Author: Linda J. White
Publisher: Abingdon Press
This book is absolutely spell-binding, has heart-thumping action and is built within the framework of FBI agents along with local officials trying to locate a little girl with a new medical diagnosis that makes finding her quickly a top priority! Zoe is a little girl of a senator. This senator is already being dogged for questionable and ethical procedures while in office. These are only two characters who grab the reader’s attention. Then, add other unique characters, put it all together and out comes a top notch tale.
One aspect of the novel is the background of a couple characters that I hadn’t read before such as an FBI agent who specializes in linguistics. There is another agent named John Crowfeather who has served as a Marine during a war and now helps fight against those whose only desire is to bring death and destruction to others. All the while questions of individual faith whether existent or not are being wrestled with by some in the story, especially when they witness such brutality. One man at the FBI work site named Scott lives his faith unashamedly before his coworkers along with sharing his faith no matter what the situation.
There are opportunities to see the romance budding between a couple of agents, a devoted husband and father along with a marriage on the edge of exploding apart. So while the clock ticks and tension builds in the story, the personal thoughts, lives and interactions of various people in the book make for an interesting and compelling read. I cannot imagine what it must take to be a Christian out in the field, solving cases, fighting crime and not always being able to save a life.
The novel, Words of Conviction, is Linda J. White’s second story. Her others are Bloody Point & Seeds of Evidence, which I plan on reading very soon! Reading FBI thrillers is fascinating for me and kept me turning pages until I was finished. To me, an interesting field of study introduced in the book is the study of language whether spoken or written. The special field of linguistics brought up was intriguing and a stroke of genius to help expand the understanding of the many talents brought in to solve a case. I don’t know if this really exists or is used by agencies to fight crime, but it was a great addition to this tale. I plan on reading what comes next from the pen of author Linda J. White. I sure hope you will join in for the adventure as well!
My rating is 5 stars.
