Deadly Disclosures by Julie Cave


Dinah Harris is an FBI agent struggling with alcoholism, depression, and dealing with her past. Recently put on administrative duty for messing up a case, she is asked to come back to full duty to invesitage the disappearance of Thomas Whitfield, the Secretary of the Smithsonian. Once Whitfield's body is found, the media coverage kicks up a notch, and Dinah is back in the media spotlight. Will she be able to set aside her personal problems long enough to solve this case? Or will she disgrace the FBI again?

A huge fan of mystery/suspense novels, I loved Deadly Disclosures by Julie Cave! The author portrays the main character differently than most heroines in Christian fiction, which often come off a little too perfect for my taste. Dinah is a realistic character with numerous problems.

The creation / evolution debate is at the center of this book. I found it interesting as I didn't know many of the specific details of this topic. The topic was explained in a way that was part of the story and not overly preachy. I did find it a little hard to believe that someone would be murdered over wanting to highlight creation as a plausible explanation of how the world was created. Perhaps I'm being naive, though.

I also liked the way everyday events and conversations with friends opened Dinah's mind to who God is. She really struggled with faith and understanding why all the Christians around her believed.

The story moved pretty quickly and there were several twists and turns that kept me hanging on to the very end. I look forward to reading the next book in the series, The Shadowed Mind.

4 stars (out of 5)

I received a free copy of this book from New Leaf Publishers in exchange for my fair and honest review.
