Fiction. Romance. Suspense. There's a killer on the loose in Galveston, targeting law enforcement officials and using a fatal injection of snake venom to take them down. Authorities have reasons to believe the Veneno gang is behind the hits, and FBI Agents Leah Riesel and Jon Colbert team up to track down those responsible. Their best lead is an eyewitness who identifies a young man dumping the third body on a church doorstep. But their suspect has gone into hiding, and those closest to him are reluctant to reveal anything that might help investigators find him. As Leah and Jon check connections among the victims and dig deeper into motives, they discover appearances may be deceiving. Someone is desperate to keep their secrets hidden, and Leah and Jon must face their greatest fears in order to stop the next fatal strike.
This story begins with action and ends on the same note, and in between you won’t know whom to trust, and even when you think you know a person, be careful!

A read that kept me page turning right to the end, and actually wanting more!
I received this book through Net Galley and the Publisher Tyndale, and was not required to give a positive review.
The killers in this book get bonus points for creativity. Why use a boring old gun when you can make a statement with snake venom? The whodunit of this case kept me guessing throughout.
When I requested this book to review, I didn’t realize it was Christian fiction. Admittedly, this is not a genre I typically read. This aspect is more of an undercurrent, as the characters explore their personal issues with faith in a way that many people struggle with throughout their lives, but the content isn’t at all preachy.
If you like puzzling out a mystery, the breath-holding of suspense, and the beginnings of romance, then Fatal Strike is the book for you. It is definitely a recommended read!
