The Defilers by Deborah Gyapong

The book that I would like to recommend is Deborah Gyapong’s The Defilers


Name of publisher: Castle Quay Books

Genre: Suspense

About the book:

When Boston native Linda Donner travels north to Canada in search of a better life, she has no idea how quickly her life will spin out of control. After joining the Mounties, she takes a posting in rural Nova Scotia, where the firebombing of a pastor’s home and the murder of a sadistic cult leader draw her into a tangle of lies.

Now, to solve the mystery and find personal deliverance from her troubled past, Linda must lose herself in the shacks and trailers of a backwoods community to confront the evil that threatens everything she holds dear. But what will happen when she frames an innocent man in the process?

How did you find out about the book?

At the Best New Canadian Christian Author Award’s ceremony sponsored by The Word Guild.

What did you like about it?

Originally I didn’t really want to read the book because of the subject matter (child pornography). But Linda Hall highly recommended it to me, so I gave in.  Boy, am I glad I did! It has a strong plot, interesting characters and tons of suspense. I also love that it’s set right here in Canada.

Who do you think would most benefit from reading this book?

If you have something you must do, do NOT pick up this book. Once you start, you won’t be able to put it down.

Where can others find it?

At Chapters or Amazon 

Any other comments?

I read the book in the car on our way to visit friends. When we arrived, I risked being rude by continuing to read in the car until I had finished the chapter. Then I “snuck” in reading when no one was looking and continued to read even when the adults had settled down to watch a movie that night. When everyone went to bed, I stayed up until 2:30 to finish the novel!

One thought on “The Defilers by Deborah Gyapong

  1. I was nervous about reading this one too, but it’s worth the read, and I wasn’t traumatized. It looks scarier than it is. Deborah Gyapong does a very good job writing characters, whether it’s her heroine, Linda, or the disturbingly-real antagonists.
