State of Lies

Siri Mitchell. Thomas Nelson, $16.99 trade paper (352p) ISBN 978-0-7852-2861-5
In the pleasant first suspense inspirational from Mitchell (Like a Flower in Bloom), a woman investigating the mysterious death of her husband uncovers a deep well of political intrigue. Sean and Georgie Brennan’s great marriage ends abruptly when Sean is killed in a hit-and-run accident. As physicist Georgie reels from the tragedy and starts the slow process of recovery, she discovers things that don’t make sense. Why did Sean lie about where he was going on the day he died? Why did he plant flowers in the front yard that he knew she hated? Seemingly small details begin to point to a cover-up related to Sean’s research. Georgie follows the trail left by Sean, which appears to lead to the very government office where her father, a war hero about to be sworn in as Secretary of Defense, is about to begin work. After discovering a cryptic journal, Georgie digs deeper into the last projects military historian Sean was researching. Mitchell seamlessly integrates faith elements, as Georgie relies on her faith throughout. Fans of Terri Blackstock will love this fast-paced tale with a surprising, disconcerting finale. Agent: Natasha Kern, Natasha Kern Agency. (Aug.)
