Susan's book No Way Out was one of the most suspenseful books I've ever read. As an editor, I seldom read a book that I do not analyze, critique, and edit. I see every error no matter how small; it jumps off the page at me, but No Way Out held me spellbound. As an editor, I still did  some critiquing, but it was for what was right about the book. I believe every word was important to the story; it flowed fast and furiously forward like white water falls. I began reading under the dryer at the hair salon and read off and on all day, finishing it at 1:00 am. If you're a suspense freak, it's a book you'll love. If you're not a suspense freak, be careful or it will draw you in that direction.

Back Blurb:

  1. This sounds like a page turning, nail biting, keep my interest book! I am constantly amazed at Christian writers coming in all forms such as mystery and suspense, parts of life that cannot be denied. I enjoy having time to sink into a book and remain there to learn the "end of the story" while trying to figure out "who did it"!
