CFRB March Blog Tour of The Void by Mark Mynheir

This month the Christian Fiction Review Blog is touring Mark Mynheir's book, The Void. Here is a summary of Mr. Mynheir's enthralling novel, the third installment of The Truth Chaser Series:

Someone’s trying to play God…
and he’s turning Palm Bay into hell.

Florida Department of Law Enforcement Agent Robbie Sanchez devotes her life to crime prevention, and it shows: She has no personal life and doesn’t know the meaning of a day off. After all, someone has to be around to clean up the mess crime leaves behind.

So when Officer Brad Worthington is brutally murdered, Agent Sanchez is called to the scene along with Brad’s best friend, Detective Eric Casey. The two turn to Lifetex, the genetics lab near the scene, hoping their elaborate security system might have captured the crime outside.

But what’s going on inside the lab is far worse: a renegade scientist is cloning humans! As Robbie and Eric pursue clues–and a growing attraction–they are caught in a deadly battle as the clones begin to act on their own volition…but this battle threatens to claim more than human life; the clones are vying for human souls.

Later this week we'll take a closer look at Mr. Mynheir himself. Having been raised by a homicide detective myself, I'm always eager to learn more about authors who delve into crime and mystery!

I'll be interested in hearing your take on the story, as the daughter of a cop yourself. I hope you and Mark get to correspond some.

Yes, well I'm doing general posting as I was not able to have the time to review, however, David, being David, will provide enough for me to get a good gist on it. It's always fun to see what other law enforcement folks write about. My dad said the one cop show on television that even came close to how things were for him was Barney Miller!

Caprice Hokstad said...

Wow, Geralyn. My dad was a cop too. He worked as a homicide detective, vice, communications, you name it. He even did some limited SWAT stuff, but our little suburb didn't need a lot of big guns. Dad went to the FBI Academy in Quantico too.

I think you'd like Mark's book, if and when you ever get time. You are, after all the Mistress of time. :)

I'm looking forward to reading the book; I did enjoy Ed McBain's cop books, but the treatment of plots were shallow. From all I've read about Mark's book, it is deeper.

I worked for several years as a dispatcher for an RCMP detachment near Vancouver. Often times truth is stranger than fiction in their world!

Yes, being raised by, or married to, a cop is interesting. And now my son is a cop in Stockton California working mainly with the gangs. YIKES! Gee girls, we could probably write a book! Truth IS stranger than fiction as Cyn says!
