If you enjoy good Christian fiction and also like mystery novels, I would highly recommend this collection. Randy Alcorn is a very talented writer with a knack for using words to create amazing imagery. These stories transcend a normal "earthly" storyline and delve into what's also happening in heaven. At first I was a little bit skeptical that I would enjoy books in which portions take place in one author's version of heaven, but I was pleasantly surprised and found myself quite captivated. Here is a summary from the publisher:
"Ollie Chandler is a brilliant and quick-witted homicide detective who lives by Ollies' First Law: "Things are not what they appear." These best-selling novels offer readers a compelling, intriguing story of Ollie Chandler combined with other favorite characters. Deadline, Randy Alcorn's first novel, stayed on the bestsellers list for thirty-six months.Dominion is a dramatic story of spiritual searching, racial reconciliation, and hope. Deception responds to readers' demand for more of his believable, compelling fiction. Readers will gain a greater understanding of heaven while recognizing a new idea of why God allows suffering."
Even if you've never read any of Alcorn's non-fiction, go ahead and give this fictional collection a try. I'm glad I did.
