Swope's Ridge

by Ace Collins
Zondervan Publishing

"September 12, 2001. Four members of the Klasser family are found dead outside Dallas, Texas. In the wake of 9/11, the Klassers’ neighbor, Omar Jones—an American citizen of Arab descent—is convicted of their murder.

A month before Jones’ execution, attorney Lije Evans searches for evidence that will prove the man innocent. But Evans’ quest goes deeper than solving one crime. He is determined to find the secret behind the dark history of sleepy Swope’s Ridge—and how it ties into his wife’s murder.

Interlocking mysteries lead Evans and his team to the battlegrounds of former Nazi Germany, the dirt roads of Kansas, and a rusty cargo ship in the Gulf of Mexico. Along the way, they discover a secret that offers the promise of great power—and the greatest temptation they’ve ever faced.

In the second book of the Lije Evans Mysteries series, bestselling author Ace Collins immerses readers in an intricate and deadly international plot. Racism, betrayal, and death-defying escapes compound an adventure that knows no bounds in this harrowing novel for suspense lovers everywhere."

Suspense at it's best!  Ace Collins sure knows how to write a book that his readers can not wait to read the next page.  This is book two in the two book series.  Book one, Farraday Road begins this story of murder, intrigue, and  international conspiracy.  For my review of Farraday Road click here.

If I thought the first book in the series was a page turner, then this book was a great ending to the story.  Although it was not the perfect ending to the book (in my opinion) it was really good.  I of course wish for happy endings in all the books I read.
