Daniel's Den

Author: Brandt Dodson
Publisher: Harvest House Publishers
February 2009
ISBN: 978-0-7369-2477-1
Genre: Inspirational/thriller

Daniel Borden and Laura Traynor live in different areas of the country and live very different lives. Daniel is a successful and wealthy stock broker in New Orleans, while Laura owns a floundering bed and breakfast in the Shenandoah Valley, while struggling to make ends meet by working two jobs and raise her young son, Andy.

Laura wouldn’t have said life was good, she was still deeply in debt from her husband’s unsuccessful treatment of cancer, and struggling to make payments on the bed and breakfast. Daniel had a good life, perfect in most every way. He’d never married and lived alone with his dog, Elvis.

But then things change. It all started with a black van that seemed to be everywhere that Daniel went…and a not so innocent visit Laura experienced from a real estate agent. Then suddenly, both Laura and Daniel find themselves fleeing hit men. Their enemy is common; the “game” is dangerous. And its very high stakes.

DANIEL’S DEN is the first book I’ve read by Brandt Dodson. At first glance from the cover I thought maybe it was a youth book. I was very surprised when I picked it up to read and find out that not only is it not directed toward youth, but that he is a writer to be compared with Brandilyn Collins and Dee Henderson.

The story is fast paced with short paragraphs that easily hold your attention but at the same time draw you into the story. Both Laura and Daniel are realistically developed characters that will make you care. If you like thrillers or suspense, then you won’t want to miss DANIEL’S DEN. $14.99. 318 pages.

Thank you to Harvest House for sending me a copy of this book for review.
