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 own 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.

Private Justice is book one in the Newpointe 911 mystery series by award-winning novelist Terri Blackstock. Newpointe 911 offers taut, superbly crafted novels of faith, fear, and close-knit, small-town relationships, seasoned with romance and tempered by insights into the nature of relationships, redemption, and the human heart.

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Beverly | 2/13/2014

    " A very good mystery story with interesting characters. Without preaching, Blackstock subtly weaves Christian values and attitudes into the story. Her Christian characters are not perfect, but realistic, flawed people who embrace Jesus as Lord. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sindy Sands | 2/9/2014

    " Terri Blackstock is one of my favorite authors. I have loved each series and the people she creates as characters. I really cared about them and what happened. I like reading that people transform to become their best selves. The mysteries are well written, with the surprises that a mystery lover relishes. I couldn't put them down.. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Patty | 2/2/2014

    " 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. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Terri | 1/30/2014

    " I read this right after it came out. Anything by Blackstock is good! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Debra Slonek | 1/24/2014

    " This book takes place in a small town in Louisiana where most of the residents know each other. The two main stories are about a marriage which is in a downward spiral and a serial killer in town. The author weaves these two together in such a way that you begin to care about her characters from early on and she keeps you guessing as to who the serial killer is. The issues of trust, forgiveness and committments are dealt with throughtout this book. A very satisfying ending and a great read! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sarah | 1/23/2014

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

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Meg | 1/22/2014

    " Good page turner, but sometimes the character's inner thoughts seemed silly. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Janecia | 1/5/2014

    " 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. "

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

    " Another good story from Terri Blackstock. I enjoyed it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Elizabeth | 12/30/2013

    " 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 Mackenzie Dare | 12/28/2013

    " This was an enjoyable story to read. I liked the relationship struggles and conflicts amongst the backdrop of action and murder. The mystery was good and kept me guessing till the very end. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 J C | 12/20/2013

    " Predictable, pointless & preachy. Truly one of the dumbest books that I've ever read. Makes all Southerners look like backward, oafish religious zealots. Total waste of my time. I can't see myself ever reading this author again. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Libby Sellers | 12/13/2013

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

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 John | 12/5/2013

    " A book written more for women than men. Predictable story line and weak character development. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Agie | 11/19/2013

    " 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. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jody | 10/7/2013

    " Pretty good book. Pretty good story line...but gracious did they have to kill so many people. Hope the rest of the series does not kill this many people or the small town will be down to a population of 1. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Susan | 10/1/2013

    " Typical Blackstock writing. Christian influence in the plot and characters. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Teresa | 7/22/2013

    " Terry Blackstock is easy reading, suspenseful and always a page turner. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Vicki Davis | 1/29/2013

    " 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 Kathy | 12/14/2012

    " 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. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cindy | 10/25/2012

    " 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 Rshelite | 7/3/2012

    " Very good- Terri Blackstock is becoming my second favorite author! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 MiMi | 1/10/2012

    " 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. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Pam | 11/18/2011

    " 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 Klsuess2 | 10/1/2011

    " 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 | 9/17/2011

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

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Jackie | 4/22/2011

    " 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. "

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

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

    " Good page turner, but sometimes the character's inner thoughts seemed silly. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tammy | 12/6/2010

    " 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. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carol | 11/30/2010

    " A little heavy on the preaching but a good story. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Patty | 11/2/2010

    " 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. "

    " 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 | 8/19/2010

    " 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 Gwen | 7/11/2010

    " 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. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 John | 5/24/2010

    " A book written more for women than men. Predictable story line and weak character development. "

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.
