In this second book of his series, Randy Alcorn focuses on gang violence, and racism. In the midst of enjoying a good mystery, I learned so much about a life that I have very little experience, and about an afterlife with the Lord that is very thought-provoking. Just so you know, this book is very thick, so if you like a full read, this is the one for you. You may want to first read Deadline, the first of the series. And then you will have to get Deception–my favorite in the series, although they all are great!
From the publisher:
When two senseless killings hit close to home, columnist Clarence Abernathy seeks revenge for the murdersâ€”and, ultimately, answers to his own struggles regarding race and faith. After being dragged into the world of inner-city gangs and racial conflict, Clarence is encouraged by fellow columnist Jake Woods to forge an unlikely partnership with a redneck homicide detective. Soon the two find themselves facing dark forces, while unseen eyes watch from above. This re-release of Randy Alcorn’s powerful bestseller spins off from Deadline and offers a fascinating glimpse inside heaven.
Can One Man’s Search for Justice Stand Up to the Forces of Evil Threatening to Destroy Him?
A shocking murder drags black newspaper columnist Clarence Abernathy into the disorienting world of inner-city gangs and racial conflict. In a desperate hunt for answers to the violence (and to his own struggles with race and faith), Clarence forges an unlikely partnership with redneck detective Ollie Chandler. Despite their differences, Clarence and Ollie soon find themselves sharing the same mission: victory over the forces of darkness vying for dominion.
Filled with insightâ€”and with characters so real you’ll never forget themâ€”Dominion is a dramatic story of spiritual searching, racial reconciliation, and hope.
I don’t know when I have read a novel that affected me so profoundly. Randy Alcorn has combined a superb mystery/detective story with a lesson in racial relations in America, gang dynamics and symbols, Christian values, and spiritual warfare.

Even better than its predecessorâ€¦Alcorn’s writing remains top-notch.
