In All His Glory by John Howard Reid was a mix of biblical suspense and murder/mystery.  I just love Reid's writing and always enjoy his books.

Taken from the Book of Kings,  we follow Jeroboam as he is outcast from his native country by King Solomon and finds himself in Egypt where he becomes the pawn of the Pharaoh's game.

Accused of murdering Methyethy,   a counselor to the Pharaoh,  he is about to be sentenced to death when suddenly the Pharaoh decides that Jaroboam will be his new counselor.  We see the Pharaoh as a manipulative man and sometimes in a bi-polar state as his moods change as easily as the weather. 

As Jeroboam stands in his own trial,  he is able to put off being sentenced as he is now the Chief Counselor,  and the next case is brought before him.  Tomb treasures are being robbed and the accused is a carpenter that has been beaten to the point he can barely move.

Jeroboam doesn't believe he is guilty and this sets the scene for an extensive investigation.  Jeroboam must now prove the carpenters innocence and find the true grave robber and murderer of Methyethy.  What he finds is his own life in danger,  and truths with unexpected twists that he never even conceived possible.

Reid did a fantastic job keeping you in suspense,  leaving you no choice but to turn the next page to find out the what,  who,  when and why of these Tomb Robberies and murders.  Surprising twists and action packed events,  I'm sure you will truly enjoy In All His Glory.

The Health Farm Murders by John Reid was fantastic.  For any murder mystery fan,  this title is sure to keep you guessing until the very end.

Merryll Manning is going on holiday.  In need of a break, and time to relax he heads to the Health Farm,  for some much needed rejuvination.

On the train he meets some others heading to the same place.   While Merryll is ready to start to relax,  that is the last thing that he will be granted as a series of murders take place.

As a Sergeant on the police force,  he must take command and help local police solve these murders.  The problem is,  it could be any one of the guests staying at the Health Farm.

Local police want to point the finger at a know "bad boy"  of the community,  only Merryll is sure it's not him.  Merryll must prove his innocence and find the real killer before "Jimbo"  Punter meets his demise.

Reid did a fantastic job writing The Health Farm Murders.  Action packed and sure to keep you guessing until the very end.  With a surprising twist you will definitely want to add this to your murder/mystery collection.
