Shepherd's Fall

Author: W. L. Dyson
Publisher: WaterBrook Press
April 2009
ISBN: 978-1-4000-7473-0
Genre: Inspirational/suspense

Nick Shepherd is a modern day bounty hunter. He chases down criminals who jump bail, and brings them in. He inherited the business, Prodigal Recovery Agency, from his father, and co-owns it with his brother, Stephen, and his sister, Marti. But the business is suffering and at risk of going under, his sister has vanished, and Nick’s marriage has ended in divorce. And now his teenage daughter, Krystal, is rebelling.

Prodigal Recovery Agency’s search for Zeena, a prostitute on the run, leads to a faulty arrest, which complicates issues, especially when he learns he’s arrested Zeena’s identical twin sister, a woman who is searching for Zeena for her own reasons. But Zeena is also wanted by some serious criminals for theft, and they will stop at nothing to get what they want and kill in the process.

With a mole somewhere in his business, Nick must risk everything, his business, his life, and his family to get to the bottom of this. But will it be enough?

I totally loved SHEPHERD’S FALL, am thrilled to know that it is the first book in a new series, Prodigal Recovery Agency . Bounty Hunters. The next book, Shepherd’s Run, will be coming soon.

I thoroughly enjoyed getting to know Nick and his family and friends, and could relate with his frustrations with his fifteen-year-old daughter. She was at the perfect rebellious age where parents don’t know what to do with them or how to handle them. I had received an advance reader’s copy of the book, and want to have a real copy for my personal library.

I couldn’t figure out who the mole was in the book until the very end of the book, when it was revealed. I think Ms. Dyson did a stellar job with this book, and I can’t wait to read the rest of the books in this series. It is extremely well down. Don’t miss SHEPHERD’S FALL. $9.99. 352 pages.
