Item description for Trial By Fire (Newpointe 911 V4) by Terri Blackstock...
Overview Paramedic Issie Mattreaux joins forces with minister Nick Foster to investigate after Foster's church is burned to the ground and a young African-American man is found shot to death in the rubble. Original.
Pastor and fireman Nick Foster found the body in the inferno engulfing his church. From the bullet wound in the head, it s clear this is no ordinary fire victim. The quiet community of Newpointe, reeling from the shock of the dead man s identity, struggles with the agonizing question: who did it and why? Paramedic Issie Mattreaux is no icon of virtue, but she cares enough about her teenage nephew, Jake, to track him down when he turns up missing. Only, what she finds is far more than a harmless bonfire on the outskirts of town. After a chilling attempt on Issie s life, Nick takes on the role of protector even as he struggles with the tragedy that has struck his church. Whoever is behind the fire is far from finished. Unknown to Nick, that person s twisted agenda now threatens to consume everything he loves most. Trial by Fire is book four in the Newpointe 911 series by award-winning novelist Terri Blackstock. Newpointe 911 offers taut, superbly crafted novels of faith, fear, and close-knit small-town relationships, seasoned with romance and tempered by insights into the nature of relationships, redemption, and the human heart. Look also for Private Justice, Line of Duty, Shadow of Doubt, and Word of Honor."

More About Terri Blackstock
Terri Blackstock is a New York Times best-seller, with over six million copies sold worldwide. She is the winner of two Carol Awards, a Christian Retailers Choice Award, and a Romantic Times Book Reviews Career Achievement Award, among others. She has had over twenty-five years of success as a novelist. Terri spent the first twelve years of her life traveling in an Air Force family. She lived in nine states and attended the first four years of school in The Netherlands. Because she was a perpetual “new kid,” her imagination became her closest friend. That, she believes, was the biggest factor in her becoming a novelist. She sold her first novel at the age of twenty-five, and has had a successful career ever since.
Recent books include her acclaimed Intervention Series (Intervention, Vicious Cycle, and Downfall). Other recent favorites include Shadow in Serenity, Predator and Double Minds, and the Restoration Series, the Newpointe 911 Series, the Cape Refuge Series, and the SunCoast Chronicles series.
In 1994 Terri was writing romance novels under two pseudonyms for publishers such as HarperCollins, Harlequin, Dell and Silhouette, when a spiritual awakening prompted her to switch gears. At the time, she was reading more suspense than romance, and felt drawn to write thrillers about ordinary people in grave danger. Her newly awakened faith wove its way into the tapestry of her suspense novels, offering hope instead of despair. Her goal is to entertain with page-turning plots, while challenging her readers to think and grow. She hopes to remind them that they’re not alone, and that their trials have a purpose.
Terri has appeared on national television programs such as “The 700 Club” and “Home Life,” and has been a guest on numerous radio programs across the country. The story of her personal journey appears in books such as Touched By the Savior by Mike Yorkey, True Stories of Answered Prayer by Mike Nappa, Faces of Faith by John Hanna, and I Saw Him In Your Eyes by Ace Collins.
Terri Blackstock currently resides in the state of Mississippi. Terri Blackstock was born in 1957.

I happened upon Terri Blackstock's books in the library one day, and was blown away by them. She combines skillful storytelling with faith-promoting stories that will leave you on the edge of your seat. You really get involved with the characters, and come away feeling as though you've spent time with new friends. Her drama situations are believeable and you'll be up all night reading. This book is my favorite by her -- you will not be disappointed.

Trial By Fire Mar 3, 2004
This book is going to blow you away. How does Terri Blackstock do it? I started reading the whole set and couldn't put them down. She captivates the reader constantly on the edge but also a wholesome setting. I really appreciated that there wasn't any foul language and in good taste without it sounding cheesy or corny. The whole set is really good! I highly reccommend them!
Another Winner for Blackstock Aug 18, 2003
The Newpointe 911 series is just what I needed. Intelligent, fast paced thrillers from a Christian author. Who would've "thunk" it. I was searching for books that I could read and not have to skip whole passages, pages or even chapters to avoid explicit violence, sex and language. To find that and not have to sacrifice the type of plot lines and genre of reading that I enjoy was indeed a blessing. In this, the fourth of the series, we find bad girl, Issie Mattreaux, fighting her attraction to the town's pastor, Nick Foster. And, Nick is fighting just as hard. However, the Lord just keeps bringing them together. Their relationship in itself is enough to make you want to read the book, but add on a mystery set in a small town in Louisiana and revolving around the firefighters, cops, and rescue units and you have a recipe for a winner. The book also makes a strong statement on the effects of peer pressure and how kids can be lead astray. It also doesn't wimp out and make the ending one that is always perfect in the eyes of the world. However, it does show how bad things happen to good people and how good can come out of it. The only downside is that the next book isn't out yet. But, you can always re-read the first three books in the series, "Private Justice", "Word of Honor" and "Shadow of Doubt".
