True Courage

by Dee Henderson

Review  |   Author Bio  |  Read an Excerpt


Dee Hendersonís finale to Uncommon Heroes, True Courage, adds a twist to an otherwise military romance series.  FBI agent Luke Falcon and schoolteacher Caroline Lane meet when his cousin Mark weds her sister Sharon and adopts her eight-year-old son.  A year later, Luke and Carolineís relationship is still uncertain when Mark, Sharon, and Benjamin disappear.  As a massive search begins, Luke and Caroline draw closer together, but will tragedy destroy any chance they have for a future?

Though the action begins later than many of her previous books, True Courage is one of Hendersonís best.  Thrilling plot twists, unknown enemies, and dangerous situations keep suspense high.  As always, her detailed characters steal the show.  Luke has been beaten down by his job where he does what needs to be done.  Heís not sure anyone can really understand him, even Caroline.  Caroline is tenderhearted and naÔve, yet she possesses the inner strength to not back down from a challenge, be it loving Luke or doing whatever it takes to save her sister.  A fully developed setting and strong spiritual theme perfect the novel.  If youíre ready for adventure, find a comfortable spot and pick up True Courage. -- Katie Hart, Christian Book

Book Jacket:

Dee Henderson wraps up her Christy AwardĖwinning Uncommon Heroes series with a riveting story from the home front. When someone snatches his cousinís wife and son, FBI agent Luke Falcon hunts the kidnapper. He has never worked a case involving family, and itís tempting to let his hardened exterior weaken, given the circumstances. But he has to be strong if heís going to bring them home. When the ransom delivery doesnít go down as planned and the bodies start piling up, so does Lukeís frustration. He fears that innocent people may not survive this crisis, and neither will his relationship with Caroline Lane . But her rock-solid faith proves to be a far better shelter in the storm than all his law enforcement training and experience
