Face of Betrayal is a look into processes of the American legal system. It follows the story from the perspective of 3 women who are friends. One is a television reporter, while another a prosecutor, and the other a detective on the case. The story follows the case of 17 yr old Katie Converse, who has gone missing while walking the family dog. You will follow the twists and turns of the case trying to determine who is responsible. Is it the local senator who has always had an interest in young girls? This book will keep you guessing until the end.

This book was an enjoyable read with an interesting perspective of the American justice system. Wiehl as former federal prosecutor delves into the realm of the crime scene investigation. While the story line is similar to many  mystery/detective books, the appeal is Wiehl’s angle as someone who has been on the other side of this type of story. How might a prosecutor or detective approach a case of a missing girl? The Christianity in this story is not a key component of the book. One character is a Christian, but does not look much at that aspect of the character. If you a looking for a novel with deep Christian meaning, this is not the book. If you are looking for a interesting book with basic Christian morality, this is a book that you will enjoy.

Do you like a book that keeps you guessing until the end? Then The Unseen by T.L. Hines is for you. This is one of those books where every time you think that you have figured it out, an abrupt turn happens. The story follows the exploits of a man named Lucas, who was raised in an orphanage. Lucas likes to hide behind walls and in the ceilings of buildings to secretly watch the workers. He is a wander who has no permanent place to live. He has never watched anyone in their home, until he meets a member of the Creep Club. This move forces him down a path that includes secret agents, bombs and murder. Lucas in an attempt  to be the Good Samaritan, finds out much about himself and where he comes from. It is the classic tale where everyone is something other than they appear. This can be a down side to this book for anyone who enjoys much character development. One never really gets to fully understand the characters until the last few chapters of the book.  Being the first book I have read by Hines, I found the book to be a good read. I would definitely say it is good, but not great.
