4 stars. Not on par with Dee Henderson, Terri Blackstock but still good.
Kooky Dr. Kristen Thorpe, local medical examiner, appeared for the gruesome task of collecting the scattered remains of the body. An autopsy would be performed, though the cause of death is painfully obvious . . . isn't it? Then again, why would an invalid man be on the railroad tracks in the middle of the night?
As Mac's instincts take over, he and his new partner Detective Dana Bennett are plunged into a twisted and bizarre investigation that lead them to suspect after suspect - and no answers. The dead man's relatives prove evasive but rouse more suspicion with each meeting. And it seems the old man was an annoyance with his constant visits to the yard where he used to work, giving unwanted advice and generally making a pest of himself.
A teenager is discovered vandalizing the old man's home. Then the place catches fire. Was it arson? Another body is found. Who is it? Every time Mac and Dana think they're closing in on some answers, they're thrown off in a different direction, and the list of suspects mushrooms.
And Mac's personal life is nearly as chaotic as the investigation. His old attraction to Dana escalates as they work together, but he is almost equally drawn, for some curious reason, to the eccentric Kristen Thorpe. When he accepts-and thoroughly enjoys-a dinner invitation from Kristen, he is more confused than ever.Read more ›
Considered a nuisance by some at the railroad, the retiree was a regular fixture at the railroad yards during the common workday. One of the railroad workers, in particular, is filled with animosity toward Mullins. Joining the suspect list are Mullins' heirs, a successful daughter and a deadbeat son, until shortly into the investigation the victim's house burns, and the son is found dead in the rubble.
McCallister is challenged in this book to go forward without his partner who is recovering from cancer treatment. He misses his partner and the subtle reminders that came from him that God is in control of all things, even Mac's love life. As Mac fights his attraction to Bennett, she proves to be a brilliant young detective, and her abilities deliver a blow to Mac's ego, causing him to struggle on another level. When she fixes him up with the dynamic medical examiner, Mac struggles more and is fun to watch as he works himself through these situations.
Terminal is a good read for those who like police procedurals and carries the tone of one experienced in police work-for good reason. Co-author Harrison James is a supervisor of a major metropolitan Police Department and whose background includes working as an undercover narcotics agent, homicide and sexual/physical abuse detective, and he has also unforced big-game poaching laws in back-country investigations. He's also made appearances in several of today's police/crime reality shows.Read more ›

Love this author, and this book did not disappoint. It's nice to have a Christian suspense book/series that doesn't heavily focus on a love story.Published 8 months ago by Rachel Helms
