Here’s what readers are saying about Randy Alcorn’s novels:

“I have just finished reading Randy Alcorn’s new novel.
Deception
is the same high quality as Randy’s related novels
Deadline
and
Dominion
. All three are page-turners.… Randy is a gifted writer. I strongly recommend that you read his books.”

“Randy Alcorn’s
Deception
is a fiction thriller that delivers. It was as engaging to me as books by Crichton or Clancy. I really resonated with the main character, Ollie Chandler. He tells it like it is, with sarcasm and humor. I’m sure glad Randy can’t paint, or I’d be in big trouble!”

“With humor, verve, and his usual attention to detail, Randy Alcorn has crafted a detective story that grips on page one and doesn’t let go. Ollie Chandler won my admiration and Mike Hammer, aka “Mulch,” won my heart as
Deception
explored the nature of man, the deceit of evil, and the breadth of eternity. Not to be missed.”

“Randy Alcorn has hit it out of the park.
Deadline
is riveting. Motivating. Intriguing. Provocative. And it’s for the mystery lovers too. Many books feed the mind. Some feed the heart.

nourishes both.”

“My hat is off to Randy Alcorn for his novel
Dominion
. Wow, what a book. It was a great read, and entertaining, fascinating, and educational as well. I enjoyed it immensely and learned from it too, and what could be better than that? We need more of such books.”

“Dominion
is a murder mystery in the best tradition of the genre—but it is written with a steely-edged factualness that is nothing short of haunting.”

“This is one of those rare books that I (a woman) enthusiastically recommend to men but am confident women will enjoy as well … Alcorn takes the reader on a suspense-filled journey between heaven and earth, into the depths of darkness itself.”

To Diane Meyer
Who lived with us as a teenager when our girls were small and will always be a sister and daughter to us. We marvel at the great things God has done in your life, Di. We’re among your greatest admirers. You’ve said for years that you wanted me to write a spin-off from
Deadline
