Judgement Day Review & Giveaway

This week, the

Christian Fiction Blog Alliance

is introducing

Judgment Day
WaterBrook Press (September 21, 2010)

Wanda Dyson

I LOVED this book. Wanda is a talented author who creates characters you like, then thrusts them into crazy, suspense situations. In this one, she has two people who have a PI agency take on a client one doesn't like and the other has a history with. But if they don't help her, she will be ramrodded through a criminal trial. It's a great story -- one that was so good, I endorsed it. And because I like it so much, I'm giving away a copy to one person. Just watch the trailer and leave a comment about which TV show it reminds you of.

Wanda Dyson – "a shining example of what Christian fiction is becoming..." (Christian Fiction Review). She's been called a "natural" and a "master of pacing," but her fans know that whether it's police thrillers, suspense, or bringing a true story to life, Wanda knows how to take her readers on a journey they'll never forget.

Wanda is a multipublished suspense author, currently writing for Random House/Waterbrook. Her one attempt at a nonfiction book was picked for an exclusive release on Oprah. In addition to writing full time, she is also the appointment coordinator for the CCWC, Great Philadelphia Christian Writers, and ACFW conferences.

Wanda lives in Western Maryland on a 125 acre farm with a menagerie of animals and when she's not writing critically acclaimed suspense, or away at conferences, you can find her zipping across the fields on a 4-wheeler with Maya, her German Shepherd, or plodding along at a more leisurely pace on her horse, Nanza.

With the release of her newest hit, Judgment Day, Wanda is heading back to the keyboard to start on her next high-octane thriller, The Vigilante.

Sensational journalism has never been so deadly.

The weekly cable news show Judgment Day with Suzanne Kidwell promises to expose businessmen, religious leaders, and politicians for the lies they tell. Suzanne positions herself as a champion of ethics and morality with a backbone of steel—until a revelation of her shoddy investigation tactics and creative fact embellishing put her in hot water with her employers, putting her credibility in question and threatening her professional ambitions.

Bitter and angry, Suzanne returns home one day to find an entrepreneur she is investigating, John Edward Sterling, unconscious on her living room floor. Before the night is over, Sterling is dead, she has his blood on her hands, and the police are arresting her for murder. She needs help to prove her innocence, but her only hope, private investigator Marcus Crisp, is also her ex-fiancĂ©–the man she betrayed in college.

Marcus and his partner Alexandria Fisher-Hawthorne reluctantly agree to take the case, but they won’t cut Suzanne any slack. Exposing her lack of ethics and the lives she’s destroyed in her fight for ratings does little to make them think Suzanne is innocent. But as Marcus digs into the mire of secrets surrounding her enemies, he unveils an alliance well-worth killing for. Now all he has to do is keep Suzanne and Alex alive long enough to prove it.

Cool clip. Once I saw the cover It looked like it would be great. I love suspense. There are to many shows to compare it to. I am not sure which one to pick.

Wow! What a story. I'm intrigued. I guess I don't watch the right tv shows. When I read the first chapter, it brought to mind two comedies about broadcasting, Mary Tyler Moore's and the one with Pamela Anderson. The clip was excellent, and I could think of several it could be. Oh well, I would like to read this book, for sure. Thanks for the giveaway and for the opportunity to win it. I hope I do!

Very intriguing story with some fascinating layering! And wow--what awesome tension. I can see it already. Not sure on which show it mirrors (I don't watch much tv), but I'd love to read the book, especially because of the romantic entanglements involved. Sign me up, please!

Oh, that was a good video. We don't have a tv so I don't know what show to tell you it reminds me of. However, my daughter loves reading suspense. She'd love it if I won a copy of this book. thanks

What a great trailer!

I bet they could use a plot like this on Law and Order: Criminal Intent. Detectives Eames and Goren could fit nicely into that plot.

Great trailer, sounds like an amazing suspenseful, edge of your seat book.
Please add me to the drawing, I'd love to read Judgment Day.
