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 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.
