Juliet Cole’s life has been dismantled by the murder of her husband. She doesn’t know who—or what—to trust when everything she has believed to be true about her marriage has been a lie. When Juliet Cole’s husband of fifteen years is gunned down in a dark parking lot before her eyes, she thinks it was a random shooting. Devastated and traumatized, she answers hours of questioning. When she’s finally allowed to return home to break the news to her boys, she hears a voicemail that takes the situation from a random shooting to a planned, deliberate attack. “Mrs. Cole, we know you have access to the supply and the money. If you don’t turn fifty million over to us and give us the codes, then you’ll be burying more family members.”


Suddenly, Juliet realizes that she and her children could be in danger. She teams up with her sisters and PI Michael Hogan to dig into the sham Bob has been living for years. The more she learns, the worse the betrayal. A drug trafficking history, a fortune in cash, and a secret family all emerge to turn Juliet’s belief system on its head, and threaten the things she loves. Are she and her sisters skilled enough as sleuths to get to the truth?

My Comments:  I read this book in just a couple of days.  I was engaged throughout.  Distortion is the second book in a new series by Terri Blackstock entitled Moonlighters Series and this book continues somewhat where the first book, Truth-Stained Lies left off.  I can’t even imagine finding out my husband life was a lie.  I also can’t imagine being a PI.  This book takes me to a world I know little about, but it is fascinating.  This poor family has been through it.  Two murders in just a year or two. It seemed to all begin when they found out their pastor-father had an affair and left the church.  I would love to hear some of the back story, since my husband is a pastor and my kids grew up in a pastor’s home.  Please bring us more Terri.  I love your books.

I received this book free in exchange for my honest review from Zondervan Pubishing and NetGalley.  This is my honest review a 4.5 star book.
