There is a definite Christian element to this novel in that one of the heroines, Allison, is a committed believer. However, the novel doesn't try to be a "message" book. Instead, it presents some tough theological questions in the context of the story that will give both Christians and non-Christians a lot to discuss. In fact, a discussion guide provided at the end of the book will give readers a good framework for a small group or book club discussion.
Face of Betrayal is a terrific thriller and a book that I had a hard time putting down. The ending will be a complete surprise but will be entirely feasible to the reader if they pay attention to the clues that are left along the way. This is a great read and by the time you finish you'll be left wanting to read more. Allison, Cassidy, and Nicole are fascinating women and I suspect there will be plenty more to discover in the upcoming novels. Unlike most series novels, I found Face of Betrayal entirely satisfying and believe that the novel can stand on its own. But with this unique trio of protagonists the upcoming novels should be fascinating to read.
