More About the Author

Julie Cave was introduced to books at a young age, which fostered an enduring passion for reading and writing. As a child, her favorite authors were Enid Blyton and C.S. Lewis and it wasn't long before she began copying them, writing short stories for anyone who would read them. At fifteen, she finished her second novel-length story and realised she had fallen in love with writing novels. After school, she completed a health science degree, got married, and worked in banking and finance. Writing was relegated to the status of hobby, but stories and characters were never far from her mind. Her first novel, an inspirational mystery, Deadly Disclosures, was published in 2010 and the following two books in the trilogy, The Shadowed Mind and Pieces of Light, were published in 2011. In March 2014, she released a young adult fantasy, The Dying King. Julie has two daughters and lives in Brisbane, Australia with her family. She divides her time between being a wife, a mother and an author.

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Daniel J. Mount on December 28, 2011
Format: Paperback
Australian novelist Julie Cave describes this as a novel that "delves into the secular humanist movement to remove God from our culture." This delving takes place from a rather unexpected pair of dueling vantage points: A serial bomber and the private detective hunting him down. (There is also a confusing subplot which appears to be completely unrelated to the other two until later in the book.)

The book is set in the Washington, D.C. area, as a serial bomber blows up one church after another, causing dozens of casualties. If you've read other detective novels or novels with detective subplots, the investigation portion of the story will contain few surprises. The book's unique perspective is its insight into the head of the bomber. For an Australian stay-at-home mother, Cave produces a surprisingly plausible and memorable character. His motivations, though hidden at first, are ultimately believable.

Between the looks inside the bomber's mind and the violence, this book certainly isn't for children. Conservative readers may also take issue with some of the flirting and physical descriptions in the romantic sub-plot. (It's far more tame than many other current Christian novels, though.)

The book might not be the most memorable novel you've ever read. It hasn't been a breakout hit. But it is insightful and intriguing.

Format: Paperback
Pieces of Light is the third book in the Dinah Harris Mystery series and what a book! Julie Cave entertains and educates while engaging the mind to solve a crime. The setting remains in Washington, D.C., present day. Some characters from the prior two books return as well as the introduction of a possible love interest for Dinah. The evil Senator Winters also remains active, trying to advance his cause of eradicating all Christianity from the United States as well as putting himself in the President's Oval Office.
Dinah is called in to help with an investigation of church bombings by her old partner, Ferguson. He is now Special Agent in Charge and has the authority to request whomever he wants to help him solve the case. He also has an agent with a specialty in bombs working with him, Aaron Sinclair. The moment Aaron and Dinah meet an attraction is sparked. Will their attraction get in the way of their work? As Dinah is a new Christian, she doesn't realize the ramifications of dating a non-Christian until she meets with her Bible study group and they give her soundly Christian wisdom. As Dinah and Aaron grow to care more for each other, will she have the strength and courage to tell Aaron of her faith and her past?
As the investigation continues, more churches are bombed and more innocent people are killed. Who could be targeting churches? Why? Another storyline is developed from the bomber's point of view along with his family and his past. Dinah begins to unravel the bomber's clues, and finally he is caught on video with someone recognizing him and turning him in. A standoff ensues at the bomber's house. A skilled negotiator is needed. Can Aaron resolve the standoff without force? Can Dinah discover the bomber's motivation? Can a killer be truly saved?

I've heard it said that you can't keep a good girl down and that seems to be the case with Dinah Harris. She is at it again in Pieces of Light, book three in the Dinah Harris Mystery series published by Master Books. When we last saw Dinah at the close of The Shadowed Mind, she had just wrapped up a case with detective Samson Cage, where they worked together to bring down a serial killer, who was intent on single-handedly bringing his own brand of neo-eugenic justice to bear on those he considered undesirable in the lower rungs of Washington D.C.'s societal ladder. As luck or fate would have it, the work of an expert profiler is never quite done and it is time to move on to a new case.

Since the time her career came to an abrupt halt at the bureau, Dinah has been working as a consultant, offering her profiling skills for hire. Her next client is none other than Ferguson, her long-time friend and former partner from the FBI. Ferguson has recently been promoted to the position of Assistant Special Agent in Charge for domestic terrorism. This new position gives him the leverage to bring in an outside consultant to assist with an investigation. When the Our Lady of Mercy Catholic Church falls victim to a bombing during evening mass, Ferguson hires Dinah to help him and Special Agent Sinclair track down the person or persons responsible for this heinous crime. As one bombing turns into two and then three, it becomes clear that it will take the very best of Ferguson, Sinclair, and Dinah's sleuthing to apprehend those responsible.

At first glance, you may think that Pieces of Light is just another suspenseful mystery novel. While I acknowledge that it most certainly is that, it is also much more.

Format: Paperback
Pieces of Light is the third and (sadly) final book in this series and delivers up just what Julie Cave's fans have come to expect from her writing: spine-tingling suspense and non stop action! I find myself quickly hooked by Julie's books which is interesting, because I tend to not enjoy mystery and suspense! Which goes to show you that if you tend to dislike a particular genre, it may just be that you haven't found the right author for your interests.

Pieces of Light picks up where we last left former FBI agent, Dinah Harris, who is operating her new consulting firm. Dinah's newest challenge involves consulting on a case where she helps her former FBI partner David Ferguson and Special Agent Aaron Sinclair attempt to track down who is responsible for recent church bombings. Though Dinah's head tells her to keep things with Agent Sinclair on a professional level, her heart stirs whenever he's around. But Dinah's heart and head are at war due to her less than stellar past and the demons that continue to haunt her.

I would strongly suggest reading this series in order because the first two books give a lot of background about Dinah, which helps complete the story of her life in this final book. One of the things that makes Julie unique as an author, is her ability to weave a strong Christian message of apologetics and creationism throughout her books while maintaining a riveting plot. Ken Ham endorses her as one of his favorite Christian Fiction authors and that's HUGE for someone who doesn't normally endorse fiction.

Overall, I still think that The Shadowed Mind was my favorite book in this series but I would highly recommend these books to anyone wanting a CLEAN read that contains exciting suspense and mystery.
