Format: Paperback
Dani Ross is a strong-willed ministerial student who must give up her dream of becoming a missionary to help her father in his private investigation agency. After getting mixed up with the wrong client, she is kidnapped and finds herself trapped in a silo with twelve others - the victims of a meglomaniac. Gilbert Morris draws out the suspense cleverly in one of his best plotlines.
I have read all of the original Dani Ross books, and I am glad to see that they are being re-released by Crossway. The new editions have been skillfully updated to fit in with their new 2000 time setting instead of the 1980's period in which they were first written. My only complaint is that I wish Mr. Morris had rewritten the descriptions of Dani's clothing as well, as they are still glaringly eighties and add an incongrous note.

Format: Paperback
This book has all the qualities of an excellent Gilbert Morris book - a compelling heroine, a tricky mystery, and an encouragement to those of like faith. This book was originally published under the title Guilt by Association by Bethany House Publishers, and the story has changed even though the title has. Dani Ross is a tough young woman who can't seem to get a break in life. After coming home to help out her father with the family business, she stumbles across a mystery that so envelops her as she is kidnapped and taken far away. We also meet Ben, the hardened investigator that Dani argues with at every turn. An excellent book for those who enjoy Christian fiction and especially mysteries of the Mary Higgins Clark, Terry Blackstock-type.

Timely re-release for the Dani Ross series Nov. 4 2000

A blast back to my teen years Feb. 21 2015
By Sparkling Angel - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
When I was a teenager, I read books by precisely three main writers: Gilbert Morris, Janette Oke, and Frank Peretti. Oh, there were other writers too, but these were the main ones. I must admit that apart from listening to a Janette Oke audiobook a week ago and reading Peretti off and on, I haven't touched a Gilbert Morris novel in at least 8 years. You know how it is. You find an author, read a lot by them, life intervenes through higher education, full-time work, or whatever it might be, and you sort of leave that author behind for years at a time. Such was it with me and Gilbert Morris.

I remember reading all of the Dani Ross Mysteries in my youth. I even managed to remember the plots for the majority of them. Just as I am reminded again of how much I adored Ben Savage. For a sheltered Christian teenager, well, he's pretty much the cat's meow. He was then, and he still is today, one of my absolute favorite male heroes. Why you might ask? I've always had a weakness for guys with a harsh back story, toughs that really aren't as tough as they let on. And Ben worked in the circus on the flying trapeze. He's just pretty amazing! So it's been a delight to rediscover the Ben Savage I once loved and find that the flame is still there. I have to give Gilbert Morris credit. Two of my favorite romantic heroes, Shiloh and Ben Savage, are penned by him. For that alone, I owe him my gratitude and admiration.

As for the mystery itself, I enjoyed it, just as I always did. But my knowledge of the world's inner workings and the interaction of people with one another has snatched some of my gullibility. For this particular mystery, with Dani and Ben being locked in a grain silo by a crazy man with eleven other people, there is no way that Dani could possibly share her Christian faith, resulting in salvation experiences, with all of the characters who died. That's just not possible that three people would accept the Lord that way, at least, not that I can see. Maybe I'm more hardened than I used to be, but I found myself disappointed that Mr. Morris took a brilliant plot with excellent characters, and had Dani preach the gospel or mention she was a Christian at least once every twenty pages. That type of writing gets old very fast, and unfortunately, all of the Dani Ross mysteries are weighed down by the exact same issue of over-preaching the Christian faith.

Still, this particular novel, the first in the series, is one of my favorites in the Dani Ross Mysteries. It introduced me to Ben Savage and the plot itself was so utterly fascinating that it grabbed my attention as a teenager and still does today.

If you get a chance and have the time like me, grab the audio book. Kris Faulkner does a stupendous job with the reading, making every character come alive with unique voices. Her Dani speaks with a Louisiana accent and Ben, well, it's remarkable how she can make her voice masculine enough to pull off a convincing Ben Savage. Who knew!
If you like good clean books Dec 27 2014
By Kirsten Leach - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Wow! This is the first book I have read by Gilbert Morris--and it won't be the last! It has a unique plot, well-drawn and diverse characters, and suspense so overwhelming that I stayed up all night to finish it. (There was no way I would have been able to sleep until I'd discovered "who done it!") Although it is written by a man, he has the ability to get inside the mind of both men and women and make his characters shine. If you like good clean books, a character willing to share her faith with both the other characters and the reader, and suspense at the level of Mary Higgins Clark at her best, this is a book you should read.
