Staying together had seemed impossible. Now it’s their only hope.

A dark shadow of fear has fallen over Newpointe, Louisiana. First one, then another of the town firemen’s wives has been murdered, and a third has barely escaped an attempt on her life. Incredible as it seems, a serial killer is stalking this sleepy little southern community. And Mark Branning’s wife may be next on the list. Mark is determined to protect her. But keeping Allie alive won’t be easy—not with their marriage already dying a bitter death. Unless they renew their commitment to each other and to God, someone else may settle their problems…permanently. And time to decide is running out.

“This tense and exciting thriller is more than a fabulous read; it has an underlying message about the place of religion within a marriage. Highly recommended.” —Library Journal

    " Very good! I would like to read the next book in the series. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Elizabeth | 2/1/2014

    " Great thrilling style and good plot till the end "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sarah | 1/26/2014

    " I'm a firefighter and a lover of miseries and this book was SOOO good! I couldn't put it down! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sue | 1/25/2014

    " A good reason to check out the author before you read the book....the murder mystery part was good but had I researched the author, I would have realized that 2/3 of the book is basically being preached at. I don't mind books that delve into religion. I loved the Left Behind Series and read all kinds of different books that have religious undertones...but this book is a "Why you need to repent and make Jesus your savior" and "you are basically going to hell if you don't think like I do" etc. book with a little murder mystery thrown in....this preaching I can get from Church or pastors when I request it. The write up on the book didn't mention anything about this being a Christ centered book and probably should.....I finished it only to find out who done it but took all of her other books off my list of to-reads. When I read Christian authors like Karen Kingsbury I expect it. I think the fact that I did this as an audio book was worse because I couldn't skip over the preachy parts.... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Suzette S | 1/22/2014

    " This is a really good book by Blackstock, but it does fall a little short of her usual level of excellence. There's a little awkwardness to it, as though she wrote it a little faster than usual or her editor wasn't as good. The relationship between husband and wife kept feeling so repetitive in places, and there never was a good enough explanation of how the problems had played out prior to the beginning of the book. The action part of the book and the characters were still excellent, so maybe I'm just picky. I did get the feeling of Louisiana too, so I would reccommend the book, just not as enthusiastically as I have some her previous books. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mary | 1/19/2014

    " I like a good sermon as much as the next person, but enough is enough in this book. I wish she had dialed it down a notch or two. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nicole | 1/19/2014

    " Private Justice is an intriguing mystery blended with romance, suspense and a Christian undertone. I really enjoyed reading this e-book and will seek out more novels of this nature in the future! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Debbie | 1/17/2014

    " murder among firemen's wives in small Louisiana town "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tammy K. | 1/17/2014

    " This is a great action/mystery series. It has good action, likeable characters which grow through the series. At times it can be a bit 'preachy', but then Teri Blackstock is a solid christian writer. I have read the whole series to date. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Pam | 1/6/2014

    " This is a great series...and my introduction to Terri Blackstock's work. I love the mysteries and suspense. They are difficult to put down. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marthajoy | 1/3/2014

    " really good book,it is kinda scary though "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tobie | 12/17/2013

    " Great book! I found myself very anxious at times and the suspense was great! Can't wait to read the next one! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Morgan Cleere | 12/11/2013

    " This book definately had an unexpected twist to it. I was able to figure out who the culprit was before the book revealed it in any way, but the reasoning behind what he did took me by surprise. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kathy | 12/8/2013

    " This 'who done it' murder mystery was ok, but not as good as the Cape Refuge Series. It was a bit more 'preachy', but still a mystery till the end of who wanted to kill off the wives of the firemen in this small town of Newpointe, Louisiana. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Jackie | 9/8/2013

    " Couldn't even really get going into the book because it became so preachy. I thought it would be a mystery/suspense book, but I guess it was more about trying to convert the masses than about fiction. I'm sorely disappointed. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Klsuess2 | 9/8/2013

    " Religious content but still had tough time putting it down. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ginger | 3/27/2013

    " I loved this book, couldn't put it down. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 M J | 12/16/2012

    " This book just dragged on and on and on. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lori | 11/24/2012

    " The story line was pretty good but the book could have been 150 pages less without all of the redundant preaching. I don't need to be told that a man might be killing multiple people because someone fell away from God. My fault for not checking a little further into the author's bio. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 MiMi | 10/27/2012

    " I liked that I wasn't sure who the killer was in this book. The thing that bugged me was that I sort of thought the main woman character was sort of dumb. She just couldn't see some very obvious things, in my opinion. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Patty | 7/19/2012

    " I enjoyed this book because it was an easy read and the story moved quickly. It made me want to keep reading to find out what was going to happen next. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Vicki Davis | 6/16/2012

    " I enjoyed this entire series and read it all. it isn't too deep but for me, who likes mystery without the yuck of so many murder books, it was perfect. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Erika | 4/21/2012

    " very good kept you guessing.... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Libby Sellers | 3/14/2012

    " Great book that keeps you on the edge of your seat till the very end! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Janecia | 2/5/2012

    " This was a really good book. I listened the Mp3 audiobook and I have to say the impersonations of how African Americans talk was just terrible, but overall the storyline was good. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lillie | 1/18/2012

    " A story of vengeance, hate, and murder as well as faith, reconciliation, and love. A serial killer targeting the wives of firemen and terrorizing the small town leads to the restoration of faith in one fireman and reconciliation with his estranged wife. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lori | 11/5/2011

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Agie | 7/24/2011

    " I wasn't sure if I'd be able to finish... At times I felt preached to, the characters got a bit whinny and even though I liked the story it was part of a turn off. I did finish, it WAS a good story but I think I'll wait a long while till I read another Terri book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sarah | 3/30/2011

    " This was a young adult christian murder mystery. I know that doesn't make much sense. I think the idea behind the story line was great, I just think it could have been better written. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Andrea | 6/6/2008

    " I LOVED this book. I enjoy all Terri Blackstock books, but they seriously keep getting better and better! It was good to be reminded that Christian people make mistakes too, and even they fall away from the Lord. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Elizabeth | 5/28/2008

    " Great thrilling style and good plot till the end "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Heather | 7/27/2007

    " All of these Newpointe 911 novels are fun, fast paced reads. I really enjoyed them, however.....if you are an avid reader and your eyes are drawn towards misprints and editing mistakes....BEWARE. I have never found so many mistakes in my life. It drove me insane. "

About the Author
Author Terri Blackstock

Terri Blackstock made a decision more than a decade ago that permanently changed the direction of her writing career. She had grown to become an award-winning secular novelist of over thirty published titles. And yet she was miserable, and her career left her unfulfilled. One night she decided she would never again write something that was displeasing to God. Since then she has written more than thirty novels, many of which were New York Times bestsellers, and was given the Retailers Choice Award in 2007 for best Christian novel in the general fiction category for Night Light. She lives in Mississippi with her husband, Ken.
