Publishers Description A quiet evening ends in murder on a muddy mountain road. Local attorney Lije Evans and his beautiful wife, Kaitlyn, are gunned down. But the killers don't expect one of their victims to live. After burying Kaitlyn, Lije is on a mission to find her killer---and solve a mystery that has more twists and turns than an Ozark-mountain back road.When the trail of evidence goes cold, complicated by the disappearance of the deputy who found Kaitlyn's body at the scene of the crime, Lije is driven to find out why he and his wife were hunted down and left for dead along Farraday Road. He begins his dangerous investigation with no clues and little help from the police. As he struggles to uncover evidence, will he learn the truth before the killers strike again?
From Publishers Weekly This suspense novel from Collins, author of more than 60 books, packs a wallop in the foothills of the Ozarks, although the lightning-fast pace, despite many plot twists, has an ending that leaves too much unresolved mystery. When a tranquil evening at a fund-raiser ends in a horrible murder, the victim's husband, Elijah Evans, and Det. Diana Curtis discover evidence from a cold case that may free an innocent man on death rowif they don't get killed or foiled by the politician and attorney general who put him there. Dialogue is curiously understatedas Elijah ducks bullets, he says, I'm starting to get mad. I'm tired of being used for target practice. Yet description is vivid and even graphic for a Christian novel, and Collins creates a wide range of peculiar characters. Suspense plays well, but Collins sometimes cashes in his chips too soon rather than building the tension over time. While flawed, this morality tale is a robust offering to the growing genre of Christian suspense. (Oct.)Copyright 2008 Reed Business Information.

Great Novel May 28, 2010
I couldn't put it down, only for sleep intervals. I know some of the Arkansas areas, have family in Mountain View, and I thoroughly enjoyed the scenery as well as the ongoing romance and mystery. I immediately ordered the second in the series and now I'm saving it so I can look forward to a wonderful time reading it.
Just not good! May 7, 2010
Truly one of the worst books I have ever read. Crazy story. Not worth the price. Would have stopped reading if it were free as it should be.
Faraday Road May 2, 2010
Great suspenseful book! LOVED it! HATED the way it ended! Luckily I had the second book to jump right into! Wish there were more Lige Evans mysteries. Will there be more coming?? Again, loved the book.
Would have been a 4 if actually had an ending Apr 23, 2010
Entertaining story with a good mystery. As nearing the end writing becomes less taut. Then as building toward the final climax, abrubtly ends. Cheap trick.
Farraday Road Apr 22, 2010
A very good read -- good characterization, fast paced excitement and suspense. There were parts that seemed too "preachy," but overall excellent and hard to put down. As soon as I finished it, I fired up the whispernet and ordered Swopes Ridge and am already hooked on it. Hope there will be a 3rd soon.
