Henderson (Full Disclosure) delivers. Her formula—strong Christian characters in unusual professions, love interests with noteworthy personal histories and authentic trials of faith—has produced another winner. Rare coin dealer Bruce Bishop is bored with ordinary success; he has the Midas touch, but business has become routine. Watch out: his prayers bring him Charlotte Graham, a tough but enigmatic rival whose loyal friends John and Ellie have hand-picked him to guide toward an unimaginable legacy she cannot inherit except under conditions she believes herself too broken to meet. As Bryce and Charlotte's relationship tiptoes toward much more than business, the shocking story she has hidden for nineteen years unfolds against a backdrop of heinous crime, daring police work, admirable friendship, and nonstop action. Minute details of the worlds of coin dealership and philanthropic giving, plot twists galore, and a supporting cast whose capacity to fight evil and win is just this side of over-the-top make this stand-alone novel a rip-roaring good read. Old fans and new readers alike will be delighted. (Oct.)
