Vance and Lindy Graegan are ready for a new start. Raising a child, living with terror induced by a past sniper case, and working as a detective has taken a toll on Vance. Lindy has always dreamed of her own deli and the prospect of a new life lures them to California. Entrusting all their possessions to furniture movers in a bright, yellow truck, Lindy and their son, Connor, start out for California with Vance planning to follow quickly. When they expect the furniture and possessions to be delivered, they instead receive a bill for eight thousand dollars. The bill increases daily as do the stakes. The mover has discovered Vance's most-guarded secret and is holding it for ransom. Vance has many secrets from his time on the force, but this secret threatens to shatter his reputation, devastate his family, and hurt numerous others. In the midst of the turmoil, Connor clings to a faith that can move mountains. Vance and Lindy find their son's faith embarrassing, but when their lives are endangered, they realize that faith is the only thing that can save them.
Possession by Rene Gutteridge is filled with mystery and suspense. The content of the prologue keeps the reader slightly confused until the end when everything is exposed. Kudos to the author for creating unique situations and keeping things unpredictable. I also appreciated the way the author approached the topic of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). Gutteridge did not ignore the effects that traumatic events can have on people and made everything seem believable. This book was almost addictive. I kept wanting to know what was going to happen! I also enjoyed the Q&A with the author at the end of the book.
