Lynda Barrett, a young lawyer and pilot, can no longer afford to keep her beloved Piper aircraft. Enter Jake Stevens: wealthy, arrogant, and interested in Lynda’s plane. Together, he and Lynda embark on a test flight that ends in disaster — hurling them into a terrifying sequence of events. One thing becomes clear. Someone is out to get Lynda…someone who will not be satisfied until she is dead. Evidence of Mercy takes the reader on a suspense-filled flight into a world where the dark side of human nature meets with a greater power, where love finds root in the midst of hatred’s savagery, and where fear become the catalyst for forgiveness and faith.
This rape case is an exception: The victim is more than willing to testify, and there’s abundant evidence to put the suspect behind bars. Just one thing bothers Detective Larry Millsaps: beautiful Melissa Nelson seems to know almost too much about the evidence needed to convict her attacker. The unfolding investigation unearths a brutal track record on the part of the suspect–and a stunning revelation of Melissa’s own haunting past. Caught in a deadly conflict between the law and demands of his Christian convictions, Millsaps finds himself protecting Melissa from a psychopathic stalker, even as evidence collects that could imprison the woman Millsaps has come to love.
International art dealer Louis Dubose has been murdered. The police are certain they’ve got their man. Recently fired employee Ben Robinson has motive, backed by a convincing trail of evidence.

Now Sharon is about to gamble her own well-being on Ben’s innocence, despite their sad history. The question is, does Sharon know her “ex” as well as she thinks she does? Two young kidnapping victims hold the answer, and time to save their lives is running out. Will Sharon’s faith and forgiveness lead to triumph or tragedy?

But using that key could cost Beth her reputation…or even her life.
