According To Their Deeds

Should one mistake cost you everything in life? Aren't you glad God doesn't think so for us. A mystery written with twists and turn, this question is pondered throughout the story line.

The characters engage in chess games which turn into philosophical debates which reveal the intelligence level of the author. Sometimes I felt that inserting so many "intellectual" points allowed the book to be predictable in its plot instead of leaving some of the mystery.

However, there were some lines in the book that I literally wanted to get a pen and underline they were such great one-liners. They were ones that you would want to post on Facebook because of their wittiness! These characters are ones you would want to go out to dinner with and spend talking the night away!


A Deadly Game of Justice Versus Mercy Charles Beale lives outside the shadow of Washington, D.C. Politics and power matter only when a client crosses the Potomac to visit his Alexandria Rare Books shop.

But that all changes when a former client--a man deeply connected in the Justice Department--is found murdered after a break-in gone bad. When Charles reclaims at auction the books he'd once sold, he quickly discovers he's bought more trouble than he could have ever imagined.

Inside one volume are secrets. A collection of sins that, if revealed, could destroy reputations, careers--even lives. Charles soon learns he isn't the only who knows. Going to the police means ruining a multitude of lives. But staying silent puts a target on his shop, his wife--and himself. Charles must decide: Should one mistake really cost you everything?
