A Silver Medallion

10 Jun

Good morning suspense fans and welcome to today’s Book Showcase!!! Our suspense feature for the month of June is Christian mystery novel A Silver Medallion by mystery/suspense novelist James R. Callan.

A Silver Medallion

Young, bright, unadventurous Crystal Moore comes face-to-face with slavery in today’s Dallas, Texas. A woman is held, not by chains, but by threats to her two small children left behind in Mexico. Should she escape, or even tell anybody of her situation, her children will be killed.

Crystal would like to walk away and forget she ever heard this. But her conscience won’t let her. Her parents were killed when she was just seven. She knows the heartache these children suffer. And she can’t sleep without hearing the cries of the two young girls and their mother.

Crystal knows the woman will never try to escape as long as her children are held hostage. Crystal realizes the only way to free her is to go to Mexico and rescue the girls first, for only if they are safe will the mother ever be free.

Crystal goes to Mexico and secures the help of the mysterious Juan Grande. But now, two powerful and ruthless men, one in Mexico and one in Texas, want Crystal dead.

In the midst of all this, the man who nearly destroyed Crystal emotionally is coming back. This time, he can ruin her career.

She will need all the help she can get from a former bull rider, Crystal’s streetwise housemate Brandi, and Crystal’s seventy-six year-old, feisty grandmother.

    Thanks for stopping by, Robin. I think you’ll like the book. It has some great characters. And as New York Times Bestsellsing Author Bobbie Smith said, “Crystal Moore is a tough and savvy heroine …” Good luck.
