The Ten Plagues by Mary Nealy - REVIEWED

About the Book: (from the publisher)
Join the breakneck chase through Chicago for a murderous maniac. As the victims begin piling up, detective Keren Collins’s spiritual discernment is on high alert. Will she capture the killer before another body floats to the surface? Ex-cop, now mission pastor Paul Morris has seen his share of tragedy, but nothing prepared him to be a murderer’s messenger boy. Will his old ruthless cop personality take over, leading him to the brink of self-destruction? Can Keren and Paul catch the killer before the corpse count reaches a perfect ten?

My Thoughts:

“Turn to face God and the challenges of today, and let the past go.” (p. 125)

There are dangerous consequences for those who cling to their pasts. Paul and Keren face those consequences head-on when they encounter a serial killer determined to reenact the ten plagues in the most grisly way imaginable! The race to figure out the Latin clues left behind by the killer lead the two main characters to face their own pasts, their own faith, their deepest heart-cry and challenge how they choose to live their faith on a day to day basis. What they must go through in their search for a deadly killer takes them on an unexpected journey to truth in their own lives as well!

Mary Coneally has transformed her writing life with the release of her new novel, The Ten Plagues, using the pen name Mary Nealy. If you are a fan of suspense fiction, you MUST read this book! If you like to stay up nights racing to find out how a story will end, you MUST read this book! Mary has created something gritty, real and challenging in the suspense genre. She not only creates a breathtaking thrill ride, she deals with personal spiritual and emotional challenges that are common to all believers! I am hard pressed to tell you what I enjoyed most about the story. Every word was captivating!

I made copious notes and underlined many passages while reading this book, and I know I will soon read it again. It’s that good! Make The Ten Plagues your first choice a book for the New Year! YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED!!
