Recent reviews of Heaven’s Prey:

“Though the subject matter is edgy, I appreciated Sketchley’s avoidance of gratuitous and disturbing description. What comes through in this bite-your-nails tale is the possibility of redemption. God, the tireless pursuer intent on capturing even the worst of sinners, is the real hero of this story. Discussion questions at the end of the book help readers debrief and make sense of what they’ve just lived through.” (click to read the full review from Violet Nesdoly, author of Destiny’s Hands)

“A well-researched and well-written suspense novel, emphatically Christian in content and message. The message is that God’s desire for justice is balanced by His grace and mercy such that no person is beyond redemption. Sometimes God’s people reject this aspect of His heart. Forgetting how much He has forgiven them, they sometimes judge others as being beyond redemption, but not Ruth, the heroine of the story. If anyone thinks the story of Harry Silver goes beyond the bounds of believability, I must say that I know of a case where someone even more depraved than Harry was redeemed. Is God’s justice satisfied in such cases? Yes, more than satisfied … at the cross.” (click to read the full review by H.L. Wegley, author of On the Pineapple Express)

“Janet Sketchley has an amazing talent for drawing readers into the story. And once pulled in, it was easy to stay… Despite the premise, the author keeps things clean – a remarkable feat, considering. I can recommend it to Suspense lovers without qualm. Oh my gosh, you’ll love it!” (click to read the full review by Marji Laine, at Faith-Driven Fiction)

“Strong action with all the right beats to make this story a movie in the mind of the reader … A story of faith in the face of darkness, of trust in a God we don’t always understand.” (click to read the full review by Janice Dick, author of Other Side of the River)

“I have never read a more profound message of forgiveness and God’s unconditional love … Heaven’s Prey is an outstanding read for the bravest of hearts.” (click to read Sara Goff’s full review on Amazon.com)
