Deception (a spin-off of two other novels - Deadline and Dominion) is a murder mystery with quirky, yet likeable characters. This book gives us a glimpse of heaven and encourages the reader to consider eternity, as each fictional book Randy has written does. Reading his books has helped me view life, death and eternity with fresh vision. Randy's website describes the book:
Ollie Chandler is a brilliant and quick-witted homicide detective with exceptional deductive skills and street smarts. He's a police department legend for his off-beat methods that solve crimes and coax confessions. But he's a risk taker and a rule-bender who drives his procedure-conscious superiors crazy. If not for his success rate, he'd have been squeezed out of the detective division years ago.
When a Portland State University professor is found murdered in his home, Ollie is called in. Some strange indications on the professor's body suggest a peculiar means of death. Tests confirm something even more bizarre than Ollie suspected. A motive of revenge seems likely. But revenge for what? The murder mystery gets more complex the deeper Ollie probes.
