I have read the whole series of Newpointe 911, and I think that this (the first) is the best in the series. Most Christian thrillers are lacking in the "thriller" department, but none of Terri Blackstock's books are. I highly reccomend Private Justice and any of her other books. As an added bonus, the author is from my hometown and attends the same church I attend. :)

This is a wonderful story that keeps me wanting to read... just one more chapter over and over late into the night when I should be sleeping! It is a small town full of real people and relationships and consequences. Tied in with the suspense of the serial killer, are the Friendships,Love & Marriages.
Wow.... Such an easy relate-able read. I Loved it !!

First story I've read by Blackstock and I wasn't disappointed. I will be reading more of her stories. She writes with realism and with compassion. The mystery was good, the characters also interesting and I want to meet them again in the next story. The basis for these stories are emergency people and public servants and what they sometimes go through. Twists and turns to go along with the mystery making it a great read. The story begins with fast action right from the start and continues to the end.

This was a very well written mystery. It was one of those books that you don't want to put down. I love how she showed the characters struggling with their own problems and seeking God's help. This will be an author and story line I will read on a regular basis.

I can't rave enough about this book!
It's the first book I've read by Terri Blackstock and it won't be the last!!!
There are so many wonderful aspects to the book.
The characters are wonderful and their relationship with God is real and current.
Not like some other christian books which take place a hundred years or more ago. KWIM?
And the story is great.

This is a very good book. I did figure out who was doing the killing very early on in the book (that is kind of disappointing...), but I didn't know why. But I am looking forward to reading the rest of this series.

I've read Blackstock's Cape Refuge series, and I decided to go through her Newpointe 911 series as well. Set in my home state of Louisiana, the series revolves around the police and firefighters of a small town called Newpointe.

Central to the story--and this is a truly good plot twist for a Christian author--are Mark and Allie Branning, a Christian couple who are separated and on the verge of divorce when a series of murders targeting the firefighters' wives causes them to stay together. There's the requisite unbeliever (a feisty Cajun named Aunt Aggie) and a few red herrings thrown in. I give the author credit for writing a credible storyline. Her plots aren't as in depth as Patricia Cornwell's, but they're wholly believable.

Her characters are genuine and flawed: they're Christians, but they don't always do or say the right things. The villain of the story isn't hard to figure out. I thought it interesting that she wove this tale partly based on a real-life crime.

I am listening to this book right now.

I really like Terri Blackstock's writing. This is a story about a small Louisiana town near New Orleans. The firefighter's wives are in danger from a killer who is targeting them. Mark and Ally are separated but he is concerned about her safety. Will their marriage survive is trial or will they go their separate ways?

Staying together had seemed impossible. Now it's their only hope.
Private Justice is one in the Newpoint911 suspense series by award winning novelist Terri Blackstock. Newpoint 911 offers taut, superbly crafted novels of faith, fear and close-knit, small town relationships, seasoned with romance and tempered by insights into the nature of relationships, redemption, and the human heart. Look for book two, Shadow of Doubt out now.
