Book Review: ABOMINATION by Colleen Coble

A blonde woman is found on the side of the road. She's bleeding, bewildered, and holding a small child--a child she doesn't know.

A man, believing he is righteous in his quest, is killing women who share physical characteristics. Characteristics that are strikingly similar to the woman on the side of the road.

Michigan State Police Captain Nikos "Nick" Andreakos works violent crimes. It's his passion. But one afternoon, when he arrives to pick up his daughter from his estranged wife for a visit, he finds blood instead.

Passion becomes personal.

Coble explodes and extends her craft in this new stand-alone, providing us with a sideline education into geocaching, swans, twisted minds, and Greek and Scandinavian cuisine. Her research into these areas as well as various theological viewpoints create pinpoint detail that rivet.

And to my delight, Abomination brings back characters from Coble's Rock Harbor series I love.

Highly recommended.

It's all better with friends.


  1. Read it. Loved it.

    As a kid I loved reading mystery books (Nancy Drew). For a time, I was caught up in the historical romance genre. In the last few years I've found my tastes have developed into a love of reading suspense.

    Now as far as writing? For now I write devotionals... sometimes fact can be stranger than fiction. At the very least it's an interesting well to draw from :)

    P.S. I saw you on TWV2.

  2. I read this book in two days while we were out camping. Loved it. Will be checking out more titles by you. Thanks.
