FF Suspense Author of the Year Terri Blackstock’s new novel Shadow in Serenity (Zondervan) asks, what would happen if a con artist came to a sweet southern town to dupe the townspeople of their life savings—and ran smack into another con artist? “I read everything I could get my hands on about carnivals and con artists,” Blackstock says. “I had a blast doing it. It was a fun book to write. I’ve been dealing with some pretty heavy topics lately in my novels, and I needed to work on something lighter. I really hope my readers enjoy the ride. This doesn’t mean my Intervention series is over, though. The last book in that series, Downfall, will release in March 2012.”
