Daniel's Den by Brandt Dodson

From the same pen that wrote original novels such as The Root of All Evil and Seventy Times Seven comes Daniel's Den, Dodson' worst book to date. Dodson stoops to the level of an average debut novel by writing this book. The worst thing about it is that we have seen better and more creative things from Dodson than this particular novel.
It's about a broker from New Orleans who finds himself the victim in an evil scheme at his office. When he finds out about it, it puts him on the run.
The story also follows a young widow who runs an inn along with her young son in Virginia. The way these two characters meet is all too convenient, having Daniel just happen to stay at her inn.
The characters are nothing short of perfect; making all the right decisions and having the right thoughts about one another. It would have been slightly better without the convenient romance.
The plot is overall average and it seems like Dodson ran out of ideas and decided to borrow an age old plot. This could be true because the plot starts out interesting, but the mediocre ending ruins the whole thing and makes everything turn out perfectly. This book will be popular because the plot is popular, but that doesn't mean it's worth your time.
