Ms Tingley is a newcomer to the paranormal scene and her first effort is well worth a look.
Justice Smith is an angelic warrior assigned to cover a forty-year-old cold-case in southern Carolina. Using both police procedural work and his angelic ability he is determined to hunt down the murderer of Thirteen-year-old Christine Conroy.
But things aren’t always what they seem, especially when angels and demons are involved.
As the number of missing children rises, Justice must struggle against both the unwillingness of a small town to admit that they have a big problem and the dictates of his own heart.
When he solves the case-he leaves and the woman who has touched his battered heart cannot come with him.
With elements of traditional crimefighting nicely mixed in with the paranormal elements, Tingley has crafted the start to a very interesting series.
There are some issues with the editing of the book and I could have wished for more variety in sentence structure and style, but these are learning mistakes. The story is good and the characters interesting. I love that the paranormal elements stay in their place instead of becoming the main plot theme in the story. I’ll be watching for the next book in this series.
