Definitely the best of the series in terms of Ollie Chandler solving a mystery and grappling with personal issues and the meaning of life. This time he is front and centre. The mystery and the solving of it are core to the story and the God/Heaven/suffering/sin issues are tucked in around it,

rather than loaded down with specific themes (racial discrimination, gangs, personal ambition vs God's will, abortion, homosexuality) as in previous books.

I'm glad Ollie really gets a go this time. Although he is going through lots of personal struggles, he wants to get the job done. Clarence and Jake are his sounding boards and they have opportunity to reflect Jesus to him. The biggest catch is that the clues are mounting up against him and point to him as the murderer....and he isn't sure of himself.

Very good mystery; occasionally preachy

Good update to the series he started years ago. Always been an Alcorn fan, both of his fiction and non-fiction.
