Acclaimed author Michael Simon's fast-paced police dramas are a hit with fans and critics alike. In this hard-hitting sequel to Body Scissors Simon returns to the Austin, Texas, PD of 1995-a time when the state capital was changing under the guidance of its new governor. Det. Dan Reles looks at the high profile case of the murdered former child star as a way to jump start his career and his life after being dumped by the woman he loves. His investigation leads him to the most pious power broker in the state and a nightmare of cult leaders and blackmailers. "Tightly plotted, pithily phrased, and memorably cast, Little Faith sizzles with anger at hypocrisy as usual."-Booklist

"In the third book of a series set in the 1990s, an Austin police detective works on a murder that involves government corruption. Several additional deaths ensue; political implications arise, with an unnamed George W. Bush passing in and out of a few scenes. The two narrators struggle with the material and mostly pull it off. Tom Stechschulte, playing the protagonist cop, Dan Reles, peppers his gravelly voice with hints of irony. Sounding like James Garner in "The Rockford Files," he is particularly effective. With a higher-pitched, younger-sounding voice, Peter Jay Fernandez moves the story along with deliberate pacing, exhibiting mild emotion as appropriate. The successful performances mitigate the story line, which is grim and sad until the end. D.R.W. (c) AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine"
