Jack Johnson, Darrell Case's main character in this book has just motive to hate God and go after a killer. His young son died in a tragic farm accident when Johnson was a young father. Now his daughter and son-in-law, a pastor, have been brutally murdered and Jack and his wife, Ruth are left to care for his young granddaughter, Emily.
The killer is on the lose and Johnson thinks he knows who did it. He sets out to see justice done at any cost. But as many of his suppositions are found to be wrong and the bodies keep mounting up, the tension builds.
Case successfully establishes the setting for small town life in the Midwest in a town where little happens until that fateful night. Jack Johnson is a character we learn to like and sympathize with. While Jack is on the trail of the killer,Ruth his wife, and Emily are praying for God to be on the heels of Jack.
If you like a good whodunnit, then don't pass this one up.The ending is especially satisfying. I give this four out of five stars.
