Small town scandal. International terrorist attack. Who among them is the traitor?
Sara and Beth have built a multi-million dollar business together, but their once solid friendship is now strained. Beth is leery of Sara’s husband, and when he is kidnapped, authorities consider Beth their prime suspect.
Then, their small town of Seagrove Village is rocked by an act of terrorism, and Beth doesn’t know who to trust. Someone she knows is linked to the attack, but who? Is there a connection to Crossroads Crisis Center? In the midst of the confusion and fear, Beth finds herself attracted to a man from her past. She knows she shouldn’t fall in love with him, but she can’t resist or even explain their bond. As her world unravels around her, she wonders, is it possible to be beyond redemption?

Praise for Vicki Hinze
“Tense, breathless, multi-layered - and highly recommended.”
—Lee Child New York Times bestselling author
“Hinze has written amasterful, complicated tale of suspense that gains momentum with each turn of a page. Her writing flows surely,moving fromone character to the next, one setting to another, with readers keeping the swift pace.”
“[Hinze] keeps the pace brisk and the tension high. Don’t start reading too late at night—you may see 2:00 a.m.”
“Fans of Christian suspense will enjoy Hinze’s latest thriller.”
“Excellent characterization and a compelling plot draw the reader in and never let go. Perhaps most importantly, the novel addresses the universal question of the purpose of pain and the importance of faith when all hope seems lost. Evil is unapologetically painted black and bold,making the redemptive power of Christ seem all that much more powerful. Deadly Ties is absolutely magnificent.”
