This is the 1st in the Emerson Dunn Mystery Series. I think this is an excellent mystery story with the added benefit of the main character being a Christian.
DESCRIPTION OF BOOK
I sat looking at a blank newsroom computer screen and a dying journalism career. Here I was, Emerson Dunn, reporter, not even 30 years old, and already litter on the Highway of Life.
I'd awakened that morning rather uneventfully, went to work as usual that afternoon-and saw three months of investigative reporting slip through my fingers. Before the day was out I was quoting Habakkuk and waiting for the other shoe to drop.
If I had foreseen the events leading up to that day of humiliation, would I have done anything about it? Could I have? One day I was just doing my routine job-attending city council meetings, checking police reports, and aiming at deadlines-and occasionally even meeting one. Then I was history.
Little did I know that I soon would find myself drawn into a mysterious web of gun robberies, neo-Nazi skinheads, a senseless murder, a police cover-up, and friendly rivalry with A. C. Remington, a pushy (but cute) reporter from "the other paper in town."
Somehow through it all God was working on me, reminding me of who I am and bringing me back into the light. What would it all come to? Believe me, I had no idea.
