Liz’s best friend rode off on the back of a motorcycle when she was 16 years old. Her body parts washed up on the shores of a Virginia beach community days later, prompting Liz’s parents to sequester her away to Richmond, far away from the vicious murder. Now on her own, Liz returns to take back that part of her life and make peace with the events of her 16th summer.

John Williams’ heart broke when, after being questioned in the grisly murder, Liz’s parents spirited her away for good, leaving him grieving for his forsaken love. With the guidance of his father, the community preacher, John moves on with a clear understanding of his life’s mission.

When another body turns up, savagely hacked-up on the side of the road, safety becomes elusive, even in the small community church where the answers are hidden. Liz and John have to face the truth that the killer is still out there. Watching. Waiting for them.

Here’s what the reviewers have to say:

The book was captivating and had my mind racing to predict where the next twist and turn would be. It had such true-to-life characters, that you could just picture in your mind’s eye how things would unfold in real life. I felt like I knew the characters personally and identified with the emotions. Judi once again has amazed me with her ability to cleverly craft another winning novel. Can’t wait to see what she comes up with next!


A classic mystery which was well plotted. Very creative, well constructed with vivid detail of location. Suspenseful…………satisfying with unexpected twists and turns. Truly enjoyed the read.


Excellent book. Quick, fun read, hard to put down with lots of twists and turns. I thought I had it all figured out, then kept reading and found out I was all wrong.


I was hooked from the very beginning and was kept guessing until the end. Just the kind of mystery and romance that is my favorite kind of read. Could almost feel the breeze and taste those crab cakes! If intrigue is your thing, I recommend this book highly!


I read this while on vacation and couldn’t put it down! I didn’t do anything once I started but sit on the beach reading and was oblivious to everything else. I was totally enthralled and loved the twists and turns it took. It’s a fast, fun read and I wanted another one. It’s a great thriller.

About The Author

Raised in an affluent suburb of Detroit, Judi Coltman grew up in a female heavy household with an urban sense of “normal.” Coltman attended Michigan State University, majoring in Journalism until a professor requested she switch majors – “Apparently making a story better with added features isn’t acceptable in the news world,” Coltman laments. With a BA in English from Northern Illinois University, Coltman has written for local, regional and national publications.

Most recently, Coltman has been focusing on her true passion, delving into the realm or fiction. In The Name Of The Father is Coltman’s first novel, a suspense/thriller. Currently working on her next novel, Coltman is still writing a blog called, “My Life in a Nutshell,” from where her humorous book material was born. Often compared to Erma Bombeck, Coltman sees the humor in the absurdity of everyday life and then tells anyone who will listen.

Judi Coltman and her husband split their time between northern Illinois and the California desert. Sometimes they even pass each other at the airport.

Thank you for considering today’s Book Of The Day – Judi Coltman and ENT appreciate it.
