Blog Tour: Daniel's Den by Brandt Dodson

About Daniel's Den:

In this fast–paced thriller by popular author Brandt Dodson, a young government accountant learns to trust God when his life begins to fall apart and unseen enemies pursue him with relentless zeal.

Daniel Borden is a thirty–year–old government accountant who lives a quiet life and plays by the rules. But when events transpire that shatter his orderly world and a team of assassins mark him for death, Daniel must flee for his life.

While on the run, Daniel encounters Laura Traynor. Carefree and easygoing, Laura is everything that Daniel isn’t. But when the killers assigned to eliminate Daniel find him at Laura’s bed–and–breakfast, gunfire erupts and the two set out on the run once again.

As they try to unravel the mystery that confronts them, they discover how tenuous life can be and how their very existence depends on the God who will never abandon them.

A perfect suspense tale for readers who love Dee Henderson, James Scott Bell, Brandilyn Collins, and James Patterson.

About Brandt Dodson:

Brandt Dodson was born and raised in Indianapolis, where he graduated from Ben Davis High School and, later, Indiana Central University (now known as The University of Indianapolis). It was during a creative writing course in college that a professor said, "You're a good writer. With a little effort and work, you could be a very good writer." That comment, and the support offered by a good teacher, set Brandt on a course that would eventually lead to the Colton Parker Mystery Series.

Brandt comes from a long line of police officers, spanning several generations, and was employed by the FBI before leaving to pursue his education. A former United States Naval Reserve officer, Brandt is a board Certified Podiatrist and past President of the Indiana Podiatric Medical Association. He is a recipient of the association's highest honor, "The Theodore H. Clark Award".

He currently resides in southwestern Indiana with his wife and two sons and is at work on his next novel.

My Thoughts:

I am so glad I was offered a chance by Glass Road PR to review a copy of Daniel's Den. Although I only got the book last Thursday, and my family and I have gone through the ringer with stomach flu from late Thursday until Sunday, I told myself I would have this book done before the start of the book tour (Monday the 16th) had come and gone. Well folks, I almost made it. I started this book late Sunday afternoon and amongst a very busy Monday managed to finish it at 12:05 am Tuesday morning. I just could not put it down. The predicaments that Daniel and Laura got themselves into drew me in so much, I just had to keep reading until I found out what happened. Great suspense with just a light mix of romance made this a book I couldn't refuse. This may have been the first book by Dodson I've read, but know I'll be scouring the library shelves to read his backlist.
