Homicide detective Ollie Chandler has seen it all. Done more than he cares to admit. But when he’s called to investigate the murder of a Portland State University professor, he finds himself going places he’s never gone before.
Places he never wanted to go.
Because all the evidence is pointing to one horrific conclusion: The murderer is someone in his own department. That’s not the worst of it, though. Ollie has nagging doubts…about himself. Where was he during the time of the murder?
Joined by journalist Clarence Abernathy and their friend Jake Woods, Ollie pushes the investigation forward. Soon all three are drawn deep into corruption and political tensions that threaten to destroy them–and anyone who tries to help. But they’re in too deep to quit. They’ve got no choice. They have to follow the evidence to the truth…
No matter how ugly–or dangerous–it gets.
A gripping story of murder and spiritual struggle, Deception proves, as never before, the truth of Ollie’s first law: “Things are often not what they appear.”
“I have just finished reading Randy Alcorn’s new novel. Deception is the same high quality as Randy’s related novels Deadline and Dominion. All three are page-turners…Randy is a gifted writer. I strongly recommend that you read his books.”
- Chuck Norris, six-time World Karate champion, international film and television star
“Deception was as engaging to me as books by Chricton or Clancy…I’m sure glad Randy can’t paint, or I’d be in big trouble!”
- Ron DiCianni, award-winning artist, author of Beyond Words
“Randy Alcorn is amazing. He’s one of my all-time favorite authors.”
- Karen Kingsbury, bestselling author of the Redemption series and the Firstborn series
“Alcorn has written a novel that combines the suspense of John Grisham and the theological pondering of C.S. Lewis.”
- New Man Magazine for Deadline
“[Deadline] is for clear thinkers who enjoy a good argument. There can be no mistaking — and there should be no ignoring — the vital message of this book.”
- Frank Peretti, bestselling author of This Present Darkness
“Randy Alcorn has hit it out of the park. Deadline is riveting. Motivating. Intriguing. Provocative. And it’s for the mystery lovers too. Many books feed the mind. Some feed the heart. Deadline nourishes both.”
- Stu Weber, author of Tender Warrior
“Alcorn’s writing remains top-notch, and he fills the pages with enough tension to cause ulcers.”
- Bookstore Journal for Dominion
