The setting remains in Washington, D.C., present day. Some characters from the prior two books return as well as the introduction of a possible love interest for Dinah. The evil Senator Winters also remains active, trying to a...more

Even though I haven't read the first two mysteries from this series, I feel this book stands alone. I am a big fan of mysteries and especially when the main character is a Christian. I like the way the author portrayed Dinah as a new Christian. Julie described Dinah's past and how she was changing her life by attending church, meeting with a Bible study group and her resolve to not date a non-christian. The a...more

Dinah Harris is consulting with the FBI on a bomber case. Someone is bombing random churches and Ferguson, Dinah's former FBI partner, now a supervisor has called Dinah in to consult. Three churches have been bombed, but they are not overkill bombings. This is puzzling, it is not as if the bomber is intent on killing everyone, just like he is trying to send a message, but what is that mess...more

The characters in Pieces of Light are quite realistic. At times I had to remind myself that this is a fiction piece of art.
Having been reared in a loving christian home where every child is valued and allowed to respectfully speak from the heart, my mind ha...more
The suspense was built nicely by having Dinah and the FBI try to stop the bomber before another church was bombed and more people died. There was also some suspense about how her relationship with the hands...more
Yes, this book starts out with a bang and keeps you spellbound throughout the whole novel!

Isabelle and Michael have just lost their dad, but they aren't really grieving. After all, he beat them and their mother so many times growing up, he deserves to die. Why can't people at church see that he wasn't the saint that everyone makes him out to be? Isabelle is also dealing with a husba...more
"Pieces of Light" by Julie Cave is the first book I have read by this author, but I plan to be sure to read more of her works. She has written an intense, multilayer story from a completely Christian worldview. Not just "Christian" in name only. She lays the truth out there for all. Without being too heavy weight or over bearing, Ms. Cave lets her readers experience the love of God through her main character, Dinah.
Dinah is a new Christian but she has no fear when she shares her faith with her c...more
From Rage to Redemption
What if your spiritual authority abused you? How could you accept the love of God when His earthly representative only brought you pain and shame? Just how long could you contain your rage?
In "Pieces of Light," detective Dinah Harris hunts down a serial bomber targeting religious icons and buildings. It becomes clear early on that the bomber is on a mission to rid the city of religion and establish a ‘new world order’ of secular...more
Loved that Dinah is totally living a Christian life. She is a remarkable character, and felt so sorry for all that she had been through.
The book opens at the Funeral of a man who was much loved by his Church, and spent the rest of his time terrorizing his family. Your mind rages against this man's brutal attacks on innocent children.
The book sho...more

As with the other books in the series, Julie Cave has several subplots going on as well as the main plot. The main plot is about Dinah Harris, former FBI agent, being called in to investigate a ser...more
Along the way, Dinah's new-found Christianity leads her to back off from a budding relationship with one of the FBI agents she's helping in the case, but in the end he expresses an interest in letting her lead him to Jesus.
All in all an enjoyable diversion with some good information thrown in about some hot button topics today.
After reading this book Pieces of Light I am compelled to go back and read the previous books. Being a resident of Washington, DC the story was perhaps more alive for me as a reader. I could related to the locations, masses of people and the reactions of the characters. Julie Cave's style was very impressive and has a great rhythm and flows beautifully although it was painful that humans can re...more
I enjoyed this book quite a bit. It's fairly heavy on the Christian overtones and gets a bit preachy at certain points. Overall, it has a good plot and keeps you interested. Through the whole book there are a few different story lines. Two of them come together nicely one of them barely comes together but I imagine it's to lead into the next book.
A good read and fairly quick.
