Terri Blackstock in her new book, “Distortion book coverDistortion” Book Two in the Moonlighters Series published by Zondervan takes us into the life of Juliet Cole.

From the back cover:   A husband’s lies can have deadly consequences.

When Juliet Cole’s husband of fifteen years is murdered before her eyes, she thinks it was a random shooting. Devastated and traumatized, she answers hours of questioning, then returns home to break the tragic news to her boys. But a threatening voicemail takes this from a random shooting to a planned, deliberate attack.

Juliet realizes that she and her children are in danger too, unless she meets the killers’ demands. But as she and her sisters untangle the clues, her husband’s dark secrets come to light. The more she learns, the more of her life is dismantled. Was her husband an innocent victim or a hardened criminal?

When someone speaks of distortion they are generally speaking about a sound or something visual that changes the what they are listening to or watching.  Juliet has that problem after her husband dies.  It seems his life is not what Juliet believed and he has lied multiple times to her.  This not only puts her in an awkward position but puts her life and those of her children at risk.  Now it is up to her and her Private Investigator sisters to find out why and who shot her husband because the police think she did it.  Ms. Blackstock has provided us a first-rate mystery.  “Distortion” is a thriller in that the lives of Juliet and her children are put in deadly danger through the course of their investigations.  I think this is Ms. Blackstocks best work yet and her characters are well-defined.  Once the action gets going Ms. Blackstock revs up the thriller quotient considerably which will have you reading and flipping pages as fast as you can.  Don’t start this book late at night because it will be very difficult to put it down or stop thinking about it.  I recommend this book highly and am greatly looking forward to the next book in the series.
