Evidence, by Clair M. Poulson

I got this book with store credit, because it looked like a stand-alone story and was an audiobook. Not a lot of thought went into it actually. Turns out I made a very good choice.
It's a mystery book, beginning with an abduction of an 18-year old boy on his way home from a date. It's set in small-town utah, and involves quite a few suspicious characters and plot threads, and no, I did not have it figured out, which isn't usual for me, but it surprised my wife too, which takes a lot in a mystery book.

It's LDS fiction, but it's not an LDS book. Anyone can read it and not feel preached to, and it paints a good snapshot of life in rural utah. It moves quickly and has satisfactory attention to detail. A great light read/listen. As far as how it rates compared to other mystery books, I'd say above average.

I am acctually in the middle of this book and next to I'll Find You by Clair M. Poulson this would be my next favorite book. I love the suspense and turns in the story. Clair is an excellent author!! I love his books.
