Jane Hewitt had been miraculously healed—cured of a terminal cancer that had been eating away at her body for months. After one meeting with an incredible young woman, Jane rose from her wheelchair and walked out, believing that her lifetime of devoted faith had been rewarded.
The next day, Jane died in her husband’s arms, devastated that her God had deserted her. Her husband, Ian, blames her hastened death on the faith healer she visited. But that faith healer is a teenage girl called Megan, who has been in a coma for five years, and has no say over how her gift is used.
When Ian is arrested after being accused of breaking in to Megan’s house and trying to tamper with her life support, he turns to the only person he knows can help clear his name, and stop this family deceiving any other victims—Dr Alex Ripley, the so called Miracle Detective.
Fascinated by Megan’s case, and needing a distraction, Ripley finds herself on Holy Island, off the coast of North Wales, caught up in an investigation that will prove more sinister and dangerous than she could have imagined. Ian is not the first person to complain about Megan and her supporters, but he seems to be the only one left alive. For now.
I have read and enjoyed the first book in this series, but did I like this one as well?
The answer to this question is easy. I did not like it. I loved it! (Were you scared? lol)
I have always been fascinated by miracles and faith healers and this story was right up my alley. From the very first page I was dragged into it and have did not put the book down before I had finished it. This means it was a thoroughly good one.
The author has a very nice writing style and a way of putting you on the wrong foot. Delicious!
I will be counting the days towards the publishing date of book 3.
Thank you, M. Sean Coleman and RachelsRandomResources.
