This is the first book I have read by Janice Cantore and it won't be the last! I have been reading more and more christian suspense novels lately and this is one of my favorites. It keeps the reader involved with page turning suspense and plenty of action and a little romance thrown in as well! There is no profanity or sexual content, but with the topic being murder I would recommend it for adults and use caution for younger audiences.
This is the first book in the Cold Case Justice series and I can't wait till the next one comes out!
