NORTH OF THE KILLING HAND
By Joni M Fisher
NORTH OF THE KILLING HAND by Joni M. Fisher is the story of a teenaged girl named Nefi, who is orphaned in Brazil, rescued, and has to adjust to life in America after the murder of her missionary parents. The drama that follows–Nefi becomes a member of law enforcement who has to choose between seeking revenge and obeying the law–is where the suspense comes in and through it all is a unique, endearing romance. Fisher’s story is grounded in meticulous detail and feels alive with fresh observations, with an ending that is satisfying yet leaves the reader wanting more.
