Distortion is the first book that I have read by Terri Blackstock and my first thought after I finished it was "WOW!".
From the first to the last page, Distortion takes the reader on a roller-coaster ride full of suspense. As the plot unfolds, there are more questions than answers, which kept me turning the pages to find out what was going to happen next.
While the novel is highly suspenseful, what I liked most was the focus on family. Distortion is the second book in Terri Blackstock's Moonlighters series and centers on siblings Jay, Juliet, Cathy, and Holly. They are a close knit family whose love and commitment to each other shines throughout the book.
Even though this book did well as a stand-alone, I did find myself wishing that I had read the first book in the series, Truth Stained Lies, so that I would have had a better understanding of what had happened within it's pages.
I also enjoyed the way the character's faith is portrayed in this novel. The author did a superb job of showing how doubt and anger can and does impact a Christian's spiritual walk as Juliet and her siblings deal with the aftermath of her husband's death.
Would I read another of Terri Blackstock's books? Most definitely! I am looking forward to the next book book in the Moonlighters series, but in the meantime I just might read Truth Stained Lies and then re-read Distortion.
About the Book:
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?
