In The Shadow of Evil

Watch the trailer:

Not many men are willing to believe that Layla Taylor is as capable as a foreman/contractor as the reputation her father had left behind as the owners of Taylor Construction. Now that Layla is up for the regional award suddenly her life is about to go spiraling downhill quickly.

When one of her homes for charity, Homes for Hope is burned and a body is discovered inside, the police have no choice but to investigate Layla. Maddox Bishop is one of the lead investigators working this crime and he seems bound and determined to find the reason behind it all even if it means arresting the beautiful Layla who seems to have gotten under his skin.

When the investigation starts drawing closer to who is responsible, things really get hectic when peoples lives are put in danger, bombs are detonated while the criminal mastermind tries to find a way out.

I received the book, In The Shadow of Evil by Robin Carroll, compliments of Christian Fiction Blog Alliance for my honest review. This one rates a 5 out of 5 stars for edge of your seat, suspense mystery on literally every page. The basic theme of the book is that forgiveness is necessary to keep evil from controlling your life and keeping you bound in misery.

Here's even more great information about the book, the author and a first chapter glimpse that will have you wanting more.

Robin Caroll


Born and raised in Louisiana, Robin Caroll is a southerner through and through. Her passion has always been to tell stories to entertain others. Robin’s mother, bless her heart, is a genealogist who instilled in Robin the deep love of family and pride of heritage—two aspects Robin weaves into each of her books. When she isn’t writing, Robin spends time with her husband of twenty years, her three beautiful daughters, one precious grandson, and their four character-filled pets at home—in the South, where else?

Robin gives back to the writing community by serving as Conference Director for ACFW. Her books have finaled/placed in such contests as RT Reviewer's Choice, Bookseller's Best, and Book of the Year. An avid reader herself, Robin loves hearing from and chatting with other readers. Although her favorite genre to read is mystery/suspense, of course, she’ll read just about any good story. Except historicals!


Informed by the real-life fallout of the U.S. economy plus devastation caused by multiple hurricanes along the southern coast, In the Shadow of Evil casts the modern day story of a building rebound scam exposed. It begins when the body of a property inspector is found among the ashes of a burnt out Homes of Hope house. Wrapped up in this mounting case of unethical practices, supply shortages, and murder, top Louisiana homicide detective Maddox Bishop is losing his heart to a charitable contractor, Layla Taylor, whose own sister is under suspicion. He’s also about to discover a deep secret about his tragic past.
