WaterBrook Press (September 21, 2010)
Wanda Dyson


Wanda Dyson – “a shining example of what Christian fiction is becoming…” (Christian Fiction Review). She’s been called a “natural” and a “master of pacing,” but her fans know that whether it’s police thrillers, suspense, or bringing a true story to life, Wanda knows how to take her readers on a journey they’ll never forget.

Wanda is a multipublished suspense author, currently writing for Random House/Waterbrook. Her one attempt at a nonfiction book was picked for an exclusive release on Oprah. In addition to writing full time, she is also the appointment coordinator for the CCWC, Great Philadelphia Christian Writers, and ACFW conferences.

Wanda lives in Western Maryland on a 125 acre farm with a menagerie of animals and when she’s not writing critically acclaimed suspense, or away at conferences, you can find her zipping across the fields on a 4-wheeler with Maya, her German Shepherd, or plodding along at a more leisurely pace on her horse, Nanza.

With the release of her newest hit, Judgment Day, Wanda is heading back to the keyboard to start on her next high-octane thriller, The Vigilante.


Sensational journalism has never been so deadly.

The weekly cable news show Judgment Day with Suzanne Kidwell promises to expose businessmen, religious leaders, and politicians for the lies they tell. Suzanne positions herself as a champion of ethics and morality with a backbone of steel—until a revelation of her shoddy investigation tactics and creative fact embellishing put her in hot water with her employers, putting her credibility in question and threatening her professional ambitions.

Bitter and angry, Suzanne returns home one day to find her deceased boyfriend, Dr. Guy Mandeville’s nurse, Cecelia Forbes unconscious on her living room floor. Before the night is over, Cecelia is dead, Suzanne has her blood on her hands, and the police are arresting her for murder. She needs help to prove her innocence, but her only hope, private investigator Marcus Crisp, is also her ex-fiancé–the man she betrayed in college.

Marcus and his partner Alexandria Fisher-Hawthorne reluctantly agree to take the case, but they won’t cut Suzanne any slack. Exposing her lack of ethics and the lives she’s destroyed in her fight for ratings does little to make them think Suzanne is innocent. But as Marcus digs into the mire of secrets surrounding her enemies, he unveils an alliance well-worth killing for. Now all he has to do is keep Suzanne and Alex alive long enough to prove it.

I have learned that I can always count on Wanda Dyson to deliver a page-turning, action filled plot filled with drama, suspense, and enough twists and turns to hold my interest until the end. When I saw that her newest offering, Judgment Day was on my review list, I couldn’t wait to read it. I was rewarded with a story that more than met my expectations.

As host of weekly TV news exposé, Judgment Day, Suzanne Kidwell’s unorthodox research techniques and her tendency to stretch the truth has backfired. Not only has she lost credibility with her superiors, but someone has decided she deserves her own judgment day and what he has in mind isn’t pretty. When she is framed for a murder, Suzanne is forced to hire private investigator Marcus Crisp and his partner, Alexandria Fisher-Hawthorne. As the PI’s race against time to discover who framed Suzanne, the danger to themselves, their employee Razz, and Suzanne escalates. The more they learn, the more determined someone is to stop them.

A story filled with plots and subplots that eventually mesh, Judgment Day is another example of why Wanda is frequently described as  “The Queen of High Octane Suspense”.
