The weekly cable news show Judgment Day with Suzanne Kidwell promises to expose businessmen, religious leaders, and politicians for the lies they tell. Suzanne positions herself as a champion of ethics and morality with a backbone of steel—until a revelation of her shoddy investigation tactics and creative fact embellishing put her in hot water with her employers, putting her credibility in question and threatening her professional ambitions.
Bitter and angry, Suzanne returns home one day to find her deceased boyfriend, Dr. Guy Mandeville’s nurse, Cecelia Forbes unconscious on her living room floor. Before the night is over, Cecelia is dead, Suzanne has her blood on her hands, and the police are arresting her for murder. She needs help to prove her innocence, but her only hope, private investigator Marcus Crisp, is also her ex-fiancé–the man she betrayed in college.
Marcus and his partner Alexandria Fisher-Hawthorne reluctantly agree to take the case, but they won’t cut Suzanne any slack. Exposing her lack of ethics and the lives she’s destroyed in her fight for ratings does little to make them think Suzanne is innocent. But as Marcus digs into the mire of secrets surrounding her enemies, he unveils an alliance well-worth killing for. Now all he has to do is keep Suzanne and Alex alive long enough to prove it.

If you would like to read the Prologue and first chapter of Judgment Day, go HERE.
Judgment Day is another book on my "must read" list for the year. I put Wanda Dyson on my great author list after reading Shepherd's Fall and this book only reconfirmed her place on that list. Even my 13 year old son couldn't wait for me to finish this book so he could read it.
Dyson delves into the world of television reporters. If you have ever thought that reporter would do anything to get a story then you are right. Some reporters will definitely go to any lengths to get "the" story. Suzanne Kidwell proves that if the story isn't there she will cut corners and bend the rules to make sure that she keeps the ratings high for her television show.
Her ambition gets her in a lot of trouble. Remember the Bible verse, "pride goeth before a fall"? Suzanne falls big time. The great part about this book is that Wanda shows that God's redeeming love is available for all.
Add it to your list. A must read!
