I loved the dialogue and the opening paragraph . ( )

A forties something news anchor must deal with God. His father is a prophet, who is killed. He is given the mantle and must confront the current governor about lies about abortion and the death of the governor's oldest daughter. A bit fluffy. The thing I really didn't like was how characters were thrown together without any apparent intro. I had to reread parts several times to make sure I hadn't missed something. I'd buy it hardover if I could find it cheap. ( )

The book begins in the world of John Barrett, a successful news anchorman for channel 6 and his father, a successful businessman. Their two worlds collide when John's father makes the news by challenging a prominent political figure. John's disdain for his father's public proselytizing is brought to a sudden halt when his father is mysteriously killed. This event forces John to understand his father, go head to head with a powerful politician, reconcile with his son, question his own integrity and keep the news crew of channel 6 from putting an erroneous spin on a story.

I don't usually read this author who often writes with Ted Dekker, who I am very selective about. That being said. I did enjoy the story line behind this book. A well crafted story, with interest building throughout the book. ( )

A story that depicts the raging battle between the forces behind the pro-life and pro-choice movements. John Barrett, a high profile, TV anchor man finds himself embroiled in the middle of a story involving the death of both his father and the Governer's daughter. How are they connected? John is forced to self examine as the plot unfolds as his life takes a shape he did not expect.
This story will either make you very mad or it will lift your spirits. Read it either way. Also, the narrator did a fabulous job of creating character voices to help the imagination ( )
