Suspense on JUDGMENT DAY

When you build your career by tearing down others, you are bound to make a few enemies.  Suzanne Kidwell understands that, but she doesn’t care.  The bigger the name and the more sensational the claims she can make against them the bigger the audience she will have.  A large audience will lead to higher ratings for the cable news show Judgment Day with Suzanne Kidwell and that, Suzanne hopes, will lead to a spot on a national news show.  She knows she has to step on a few toes to get ahead in this business.  And Suzanne is more than OK with that.

What she is not OK with is being named a suspect in the death of her boyfriend and his secretary.  Even worse is asking for help from the best private eye in the area—a man who happens to be the college boyfriend she betrayed.

In the suspenseful novel Judgment Day, Wanda L. Dyson creates a fast-paced thriller—complete with kidnapping, murder, and betrayal.  The villain is dark and twisted, conceited and unafraid.  It’s that lack of fear that makes this villain so dangerous to Suzanne and so entertaining to readers.

The one problem I had with this book is how easy it was to figure out who the villain was.  Part of the fun of a suspense novel is figuring out who did it and why.  A lot of that was taken away with what I felt was an early reveal of the main villain.

Still, the why was not as easy to figure out.  There were a lot of layers to the motive, adding depth to the evilness of this particular villain.

This is the first book by Wanda L. Dyson that I have read.  Overall, I found it to be very well-written and entertaining.  I look forward to reading more of her work in the future.
