CFBA Tour & Review: Deadly Disclosure

This week, the

Christian Fiction Blog Alliance

is introducing

Deadly Disclosure
New Leaf Publishing Group/Master Books (February 15, 2010)

Julie Cave


Julie first heard a creation science speaker at her church when she was just 15, igniting her interest in creation science and sparking an enthusiasm for defending the Bible’s account of creation. She has obtained a degree in health science, and is currently completing a degree in law. Julie is married with one daughter and lives on the east coast of Australia.


A Suspense-filled mystery which answers an ominous question: How far will some go to silence an influential Christian voice?

Thomas Whitfield, proud Secretary of the Smithsonian and its extensive scientific influence, has disappeared from his office with foul play suspected. Dinah Harris, an FBI agent struggling with alcohol and depression, is seeking answers amidst the fallout of her own personal issues.

Whitfield's body is eventually found, and other people connected to him begin dying as well, ultimately exposing a broader conspiracy connected to Whitfield's recent conversion to Christ and promotion of a biblical worldview in an academic world of financial gain hostile to this concept.

Will Dinah be able to experience the redemptive power of Christ before it's too late? Or will the ominous danger stalking her investigation claim another victim?

My Review

The premise of the novel grabbed my attention. A murder mystery wrapped up in the creation/evolution argument. This is a vast argument in our society today and I wanted to know just how the book was going to come about.

But the novel just did not follow through. The arguments presented in the book were factual and I agreed with everything said, but they came across as preachy. I felt inundated with sermons that would have been more potent if sprinkled throughout the story. The mystery itself was gripping, but after a while it got kind of gruesome and in some cases hard to follow. There was quite a bit of jumping around and “head hopping.” A writer’s term for jumping from one character’s head to another with no warning to the reader.

This book had potential to be a great book with a powerful message, but this novel wasn’t in my opinion, the best way to go about it.

This review is my honest opinion. Thanks to the publisher through CFBA for my copy to review.
