I picked this book up at an ACFW conference and finally got around to reading it. I'm sorry I let it go so long. It was an excellent read. Warren does a wonderful job of keeping the suspense right on the edge. I loved the Russian backdrop to the story and the unbelievable personal connection that she has to the story's plotline. Don't miss her personal note at the end!

Full of Action and Suspense!

Susan May Warren is a FANTASTIC writer!
This story is full of action, suspense, murder, and a bit of romance.
I loved how the author wove the struggles of being a missionary into this story. Daily missionaries have to trust God for their safety, their provisions, and their purpose. Gracie was struggling with all of this.
It's hard to imagine what else could go wrong in the last few days Gracie had in Russia, but it just seems to keep going and going.
Who can she trust?

Set in Russia, missionaries killed right before a woman missionary goes home. Now someone is after her.

Missionary Gracie Benson feels like a failure. During her two years in Russia, she has not made one convert and has not learned the language. As she prepares to return to the US, she discovers the bodies of mission friends, Evelyn and Dr. Willie. For some reason she doesn't understand, their killer is after her, too. As the body count rises, Vicktor Shubnikov seems to the the only one she can trust... except he's an FSB agent. Set in Khabarovsk, Russia. This story throws the reader into the midd ...more

After I read Wiser than Serpents I went to the library to see if they had this book. They did! And this book was just as good!

I'm not sure why this book got such high ratings! This was a random book I picked from the library and thought the story sounded interesting. The character's were weak, the plot was weak and the end of the book was just hookey.

This is a great book! I love that way that the author wove her faith like a thread through the book. It was a mystery, romance, and Christian novel all wrapped up in one amazing book.

This was an easy read and had some interesting tension. It had a lot of holes in the whole story and some things that I just didn't find believable.

I can't help be amazed at the gifts God has delighted me with - a wonderful husband, four amazing children, and the opportunity to write for Him.

I've been writing as long as I can remember - I won my first book writing contest in first grade! Over the years, writing has become, for me, a way to praise God and see Him at work in my life.

Although I have a degree in Mass Communications from the Unive
