Mercy at Midnight

Sylvia Bambola. Heritage, $14.99 trade paper (408p) ISBN 978-0-98997-075-4
Bambola’s (Rebekah’s Treasure) romantic suspense will pull readers in with its encouraging, true-to-life message. Undercover reporter Cynthia Wells is searching for a big story, and she believes she’ll find it by investigating the recent rise in deaths within the homeless population of the fictional small town, Oberon (in an unknown American state). Cynthia decides to go undercover and takes a job at Beacon Mission, where she meets pastor Jonathan Holms. Cynthia and Jonathan’s goals intersect in the case of Stubby White, a homeless man who believes his friends were murdered. The stakes are high, particularly when Stubby and Cynthia find themselves in the crosshairs of a murderer as they get closer to learning the truth. Bambola tackles some difficult topics, such as homelessness, gangs, and drugs, in a tactful and realistic manner. The well-developed characters, particularly Stubby, make this story of redemption affecting and believable. Bambola’s tale will remind the readers of faith that no one is too broken for God’s redemption. (BookLife)
