IN THE ENEMY'S SIGHTS By Marta Perry



IN THE ENEMY'S SIGHTS By Marta Perry
Publisher: Steeple Hill
Line: Love Inpsired Suspense # 19
ISBN: 0-373-87359-X

This is book four in Steeple Hill's newest Faith at the Crossroads series.

From Marta Perry's Website:

Forced home on medical leave from active duty, Air Force captain Kenneth Vance is at loose ends until he's asked to help provide security for Montgomery Construction, which has been targeted by an enemy who wants to destroy the Vance and Montgomery families.

Doing so brings him into close contact with high school classmate Julianna Red Feather, now a canine search-and-rescue specialist.

He's intrigued with the woman she's become, but with a madman on the loose, he's soon in the battle of his life. And Julianna finds she must risk everything to save him and his family.


I enoyed this story on many levels. The action scenes were exciting, and Marta made me feel as if I were the one weaving around sawhorses and piles of lumber being pursued. (get the book and you'll know which scene I'm talking about. Wink. Wink.) I didn't have to excercise today because several parts in this book kept my heartrate up. Having grown up around Zuni Indians and turquoise, the description in this story brought back some fond memories for me. I recently finished editing one of my mss, which I feel has my weakest heroine in it. That said, I was in awe of Marta's ability to develop characters with strengths, AND flaws, but not to the point the characters seemed unlikable or weak. Character voices were distinct, and I really, really liked this heroine. She was courageous. I even loved the dog. Ken is heroic and a true protector. A perfect match for Juli. I could see the story happen like a moving pucture, yet there were no long stints of narrative that bogged the story down. I love how Marta writes lean, and to the point. BRAVO!!!
