A winner by Robin Carroll

This week, the
Christian Fiction Blog Alliance
is introducing
In The Shadow of Evil
B&H Books (March 1, 2011)
Robin Carroll

Robin was one of the first people I met when joining the ACFW (American Christian Fiction Writers - http://www.acfw.com/) sooo many years ago and at the time, she was a newbie herself, learning and growing in her craft, being mentored by some of the best suspense writers out there. Now, she's come into her own and is one of those best suspense writers! :)

It's been fun getting to know her along the journey and cheering her on. We Southern gals have to stick together!

I truly enjoyed this novel, it was suspenseful and intriguing but not "scary" and for scaredy cats like myself, that's exactly what I want in a suspense. (after all, suspense is not thriller) ::grin:: I highly recommend this novel and others by Robin for anyone looking for a sturdy read, relatable characters, heart-pounding suspense, and exciting twists and turns. Robin does a little bit of it all! "In the Shadow of Evil" is no exception. Get your copy today HERE! (and then spread the word!)

Read below for more info. (hey that rhymes...)


Born and raised in Louisiana, Robin Caroll is a southerner through and through. Her passion has always been to tell stories to entertain others. Robin’s mother, bless her heart, is a genealogist who instilled in Robin the deep love of family and pride of heritage—two aspects Robin weaves into each of her books. When she isn’t writing, Robin spends time with her husband of twenty years, her three beautiful daughters, one precious grandson, and their four character-filled pets at home—in the South, where else? Robin gives back to the writing community by serving as Conference Director for ACFW. Her books have finaled/placed in such contests as RT Reviewer's Choice, Bookseller's Best, and Book of the Year. An avid reader herself, Robin loves hearing from and chatting with other readers. Although her favorite genre to read is mystery/suspense, of course, she’ll read just about any good story. Except historicals!


Informed by the real-life fallout of the U.S. economy plus devastation caused by multiple hurricanes along the southern coast, In the Shadow of Evil casts the modern day story of a building rebound scam exposed. It begins when the body of a property inspector is found among the ashes of a burnt out Homes of Hope house. Wrapped up in this mounting case of unethical practices, supply shortages, and murder, top Louisiana homicide detective Maddox Bishop is losing his heart to a charitable contractor, Layla Taylor, whose own sister is under suspicion. He’s also about to discover a deep secret about his tragic past.
