No words can describe how terrible this book is It's as if the author thought of a thin plot line and then filled a bag with list of all societal ills shook it up and sprinkled them in the plot Murder Check Domestic Violence Check Infidelity Check Pornography Check Hypocritical religious leaders Check Oh and he threw in several satanic references Apparently any war in the Mideast is literally a war with Satan he explains the etymology of this and many guys in jail aren't responsible because they are possessed with demons Terrible terrible book I pray the author sees the error of his ways and either retires or takes this out of publication

Murder betrayal and a trial that feeds a media frenzyCan one woman stand against the forces that threaten to tear her family apart Pastor Ron Hamilton’s star is rising His 8000 strong church is thriving His good looks and charisma make him an exceptional speaker on family values And his book on pornography in the church has become an unexpected bestseller Everything is pe. Usually I like Bell's books you can tell that he is a lawyer and he gets the little details right This book however left me confused What exactly was the author trying to do At times it was a murder mystery the story of a pastor gone bad a sermon against the evils of pornography and the first hand glance at a woman who thought she knew her husband but had the rug pulled out from under herPlot aside I also found character development to be shallow The oldest child Cara never became real to the reader She seemed to take everything in stride and was two dimensional The other child Jared was almost too over the top and his supposedly deep seated problems that developed while serving in Ira were resolved too uickly and painlessly Having never been married I guess I can't really comment on the easy reconciliation between husband and wife after atrocious betrayals but as a trained marriage and family therapist I don't think it was realistic Give this book a pass

Presumed GuiltyRfect Until a young woman’s body is discovered in a seedy motel room The woman is a porn star And all the evidence in the murder points to one man RonWith the noose tightening around her husband’s neck Dallas Hamilton faces a choice believe the seemingly irrefutable facts or the voice of her heart The press has already reached its verdict and the public echoes it But Da. While not uite in the same league as Robert Whitlow James Scott Bell shows promise in the realm of compelling well written Christian fiction Dallas Hamilton's seemingly perfect world is shattered when her minister husband is arrested for the murder of an adult film star Her husband was working with a local politician to combat the world of adult entertaiment In the course of the investigation secrets are revealed including that her husband slept with the victim and had a previous affair A hard drive full of pornography doesn't help his case and soon a media circus has eruptedMeanwhile Dallas' family is also falling apart in other ways Her son is home from Ira and appears to suffer from some kind of post combat stress issues He can't hold down a job and has anger issues with his father He lashes out at everyone and denies God Dallas slowly tries to chip away at what's wrong and what happened during his time in combat to change her son Bell's story works well enough when it confines itself to the dealings of the legal system and the dilemma may men face in fighting the temptation of adult entertainment The reflections by Dallas' husband Ron in prison on how he's gone down the path to ruin he's followed are compelling though it doesn't fully explain a decision he makes halfway through the story Which is part of my problem with the story There are a lot of twists and turns including a vast conspiracy at the center of the story that bogs down the novel's final half For every believable twist and turn there was another one that left me scratching my head And while Dallas Ron and the son feel like authentic chracters there are still other characters in the story who come off as too one note and serve only as ways to advance the plot And the journey taken by the son while interesting is one that is a bit predictable in the end
