Amazon Link for the book: End of Grace
From the back of the book: An incident in computer specialist Rick Macey’s past has put him on the path of revenge. If his plan is successful, the object of his wrath, the Church of the Latter-Day Saints, could lose millions of dollars and thousands of members. What Rick cannot foresee are the sinister ways this church will react when threatened.
My review: This is an interesting thriller that held my interest throughout. This is a fiction book, of course, but there are references to actual practices and historical organizations within the Mormon Church. It can be quite controversial any time you write a book that even suggests problems within a church body, but no matter what your denomination it is important for every person of faith to take a deep look at the motives of its leaders.
I found the main character of Kay very believable as a career woman within the church and someone who felt out of place her church’s practices. She finds herself caught up in the middle of the intrigue, not quite sure who to trust, but determined to be strong and do what is right. I recommend this book for anyone who likes mystery/thrillers with a light romance. Mormons should also read the book for what it is – a great mystery/thriller with many historical facts about the Church of the Latter-Day Saints.
