ALL IS PASSING
Press (out of print)
Widowed legal aid Marie Kenning
lives alone in the little community of Lakeland following the
death of her husband and unborn child at the hand of a drunken
driver. When Marie witnesses the abduction of six year old Rebecca
Landers the distraught young woman feels she is the only one
who can rescue the little girl from the kidnapper.
When all evidence appears to
indicate Rebecca has perished, Marie chides herself for not moving
more quickly or attracting more attention when the little girl
was snatched directly in front of her. Marie's boss encourages
her to take a few days off to help Marie recover from her ordeal
and days later Marie blunders across both the kidnapper and the
much alive Rebecca. Marie finds herself unable to convince anyone
that the situation is as she knows it is, thus she sets out on
a dangerous trek to follow and rescue this little girl. Back
in Lakeland Officer Chris Whitley, the police officer assigned
to the case realizes too late that the woman he is learning to
care for has indeed come up with the right answers to the mysterious
The fast pace of David Furlotte's
action packed thriller CONTRACT FOR DECEIT and interesting characters
a la Marianna Heusler's BURIED IN THE TOWNHOUSE give an idea
of the quick moving action along with a group of delightful,
believable characters found in this excellent 'keep 'em turning
the page' romantic thriller.
The utter despair filled discouragement
experienced by Marie Kenning is unmistakable.
Chris Whitley as the police officer
bemused, not really believing until it is nearly too late, is
a likeable fellow we hope will get his head on straight before
it is too late for Marie and little Rebecca. The twists and turns
of the plot are interesting and carried out well in the romantic
thriller wherein a little romance and a whole lot of thriller
combine into one excellent tale.
Entertaining book, highly recommended.
