CFBA: All Through the Night by Davis Bunn

Song Stuck on the Brain: Theme from Love Story. I heard it while watching Mummy 3 and it got stuck. Great movie by the way...

This week, the Christian Fiction Blog Alliance is introducing:

All Through The Night


Davis Bunn
(Bethany House - July 1, 2008)


I've been a Davis Bunn fan since he was marketed as T. Davis Bunn. He's such a talented writer. His works span the genres, from The Gift or The Song of Acadia series written with Janette Oke, to works like the Priceless Collection series and The Lazarus Trap. No matter what genre he's writing in, I find myself hooked.

Beyond the Night was no exception. In fact, it may have even gone a little beyond my initial expectations. The characters were so real I felt the pages flutter with their every breath. The plot was fresh and gripping. I love that it starts off with such a bang, not but six chapters in and Wayne has solved the first scam and is riding to the rescue to save the day.

The action had me hooked, but the relationships between Wayne and his new friends were inspiring and thought provoking. I love the bet he makes with elderly Victoria, a great opener for the many lives that cross his path later in the book.

I really can't say enough about this book. I was impressed and it will be a long time before Wayne Grusza fades into the shadows of my memory - Special Ops trained or not.


A loner, trying to forget. A community--and a woman--who need for him to remember...
Broken relationships and unfulfilled promises scatter themselves across Wayne's past like burned-out craters. His background in military special-ops is something he's trying to forget. But when he gets himself sweet-talked into helping a quirky group of seniors who've been scammed, he discovers it will take a lot more than muscle and nerve. Breach a conman's high-security estate to recover stolen money? No problem. Become part of community? Love again? Not on your life.

A lawyer with her own painful past is intrigued by Wayne and asks him to take on another unusual case--Tatanya's wealthy employer believes he's been visited angel? Did a messenger from God in a pinstripe suit truly bring a divine warning, or is this merely another cruel hoax? Tatanya is willing to trust Wayne with her boss's life, but she's not sure she's ready to trust him with her own wounded heart.

With a financial analyst's skills and a warrior's tenacity, Wayne races to unmask dangerous forces hiding behind a corporate veil. But he will need all his resources--and then some--against an unseen enemy bent on destroying his fragile bid for a second chance at life...and love.

All he wanted was to put his past behind him. But now it's the only thing that will save them...
