Daddy handed me a book and asked, "How about this for the church library?"
I glanced at the title, knew all my family loves these books, and commented, "You know, I haven't read it yet."
It was 3:30a.m. on a Sunday morning. I turned the last page, closed the book, and staggered my room.

The premise of the book is that the main character is having trouble with his private life, i.e. he's becoming and alcoholic and suffers from blackouts on occasion. He's also a fine detective who has been called to work a homicide investigation that has way too many pieces of evidence, too many suspects and evidence that points to his presence at the murder scene.
It's a great read, in that all along t...more
a. “Deception” is the 3rd in this series, the first being “Deadline” and then “Dominion.” I’ve read all three. All are brilliantly done and all three star Detective Ollie Chandler.

Ollie has seen this professor before. How did he really die? Did Ollie murder him in a drunken stupor? After al...more
“I have just finished reading Randy Alcorn’s new novel. Deception is the same high quality as Randy’s related novels Deadline and Dominion. All three are page-turners…Randy is a gifted writer. I strongly recommend that you read his books.”

Homicide detective, Ollie Chandler, has seen it all.
But when he's called to investigate the murder of a Portland State University professor, he finds himself going places that he's never gone before.

This novel written by Randy Alcorn is a fantastic, chilling thriller told through the eyes of an intelligent homicide detective by the name of Ollie Chandler. Detective Chandler is called to investigate the murder of a professor from the Portland State University, and hits many twisted plots throughout his investigation. Anything he had ever believed before is being questioned after each and every piece of information. The reoccurring theme throughout the book is that things are not alw...more
Although billed as a sequel, this felt more like a spin-off novel – the main characters from Alcorn’s previous novels featured heavily in the plot, the main focus here is on Detective Ollie Chandler (who appeared in the previous novels) and it works so well as a stand-alone novel that, if you haven’t already read them, will quite probably make the reader want to go back and read the others too as it’s so very good!
This harks back to the style of the old detective novels feat...more
