I recently received this wonderful review from Laura Davis, a member of a Christian Review team. I can't help but want to share it:)
"Beam me up Scotty! James Kirk is back, only this time he is an FBI agent and his name is James Kirk Benedict. Sorry Star Trek fans but that's about all you are going to get in the way of science fiction in this murder mystery by author Donna Dawson. James Kirk Benedict is on a much needed vacation aboard the cruise ship The Cormorant. Unfortunately, as he settles into relax, people start dying, covered in horrible boils that eat into their flesh and bone. They are dead within minutes and it is feared that a biological weapon has been released on the floating hotel. Will James Benedict be able to stop the virus that is spreading or will he be a victim too? This well written novel of suspense by Canadian author Donna Dawson, is sure to keep the reader guessing until the end. I felt like I was reading a John Grisham novel (yes, it was that good!). It is obvious that Donna has researched her topic matter, which makes her characters both believable and intriguing. There is another side story as well, that involves Benedict's girlfriend Dr. Julie Holding, a psychologist in the FBI's Victim Assistance Office. She is left to help a little girl who had been kidnapped and abused, (Cassandra) whom James had rescued on a previous mission. This storyline is very tender and presents the love of Christ in a healing and natural way. Throughout this book the reader is reminded several times that revenge or Vengeance is the Lord's (but not in a preachy way) and that ultimately, it is up to us to allow Him to work out the details when situations are out of our control. Kudos to the author! I look forward to seeing more of James Kirk Benedict on future missions! You can purchase Vengeance online at Amazon!"
