Book Review: Indivisible

When police chief Jonah Westfall discovers two dead raccoons that have been tortured, he sets out to find the mastermind behind the animal cruelty.   As the investigation begins, Jonah finds a second pair of raccoons who have been gruesomely eviscerated and their limbs removed.  Unsure of whether the crimes are cult related or simply for sport, Jonah’s stress level rises when he realizes the killer has obvious surgical skills and knowledge.  Worried that the perpetrator will start attacking the Redford, Colorado residents, Jonah’s determination to find the killer intensifies.  Plagued with his own memories of an abusive childhood, a failed relationship and the troubled thoughts
that haunt him – Jonah is an emotional train wreck waiting to happen.

While this story offers some interesting characters, romance, suspense and plenty of twists and turns – I found it a bit gory and strange for my own reading preferences.  The book was kind of all over the place for me and parts of it just didn’t work.   Eviscerated (disemboweled) animals aren’t my idea of pleasure reading, but those who are looking for a gritty psychological thriller in the Christian arena, may very well enjoy this book.

Note: There are some uses of mild language in the book and a mildly coarse reference to a woman’s “chest” that might be offensive to those who prefer to avoid such references in their reading material. (P. 31,43, 54)

About This Book:

Battling his own personal demons, Police Chief Jonah Westfall knows
the dark side of life and has committed himself to eradicating it.
When a pair of raccoons are found mutilated in Redford, Colorado,
Jonah investigates the gruesome act, knowing the strange event could
escalate and destroy the tranquility of his small mountain town.
With a rising drug threat and never-ending conflict with Tia Manning,
a formidable childhood friend with whom he has more than a passing
history, Jonah fights for answers and his fragile sobriety.

But he can’t penetrate every wound or secret, especially one fueled by
a love and guilt teetering on madness.

From best-selling author Kristen Heitzmann comes a spellbinding tale
of severed connections and the consequences of life lived alone.
