Barbara Covington has one more chance to save her daughter from a devastating addiction, by staging an intervention. But when eighteen-year-old Emily disappears on the way to drug treatment-and her interventionist is found dead at the airport-Barbara enters her darkest nightmare of all. Barbara and her son set out to find Emily before Detective Kent Harlan arrests her for a crime he is sure she committed. Fearing for Emily's life, Barbara maintains her daughter's innocence. But does she really know her anymore? Meanwhile, Kent has questions of his own. His gut tells him that this is a case of an addict killing for drugs, but as he gets to know Barbara, he begins to hope he's wrong about Emily. The panic level rises as the mysteries intensify: Did Emily's obsession with drugs lead her to commit murder-or is she another victim of a cold-blooded killer?

"Intervention is a riveting novel that shines the spotlight on the drug epidemic among our nation's youth. Will we, like Barbara, unwittingly turn a blind eye to those hurting and abused among us, or will we reach out and offer hope before they end up in Emily's shoes? May Intervention be our call to action. We'll be served some terrific, page-turning suspense as only Terri Blackstock can deliver along the way." TitleTrakk.com "Short chapters and terse dialogue propel the fast-paced action. It's competent genre work, though the characterizations could go deeper. The villain is somewhat improbable, and the 14-year-old brother of the missing teen is exceptionally clever and poised. But the mother-daughter relationship strikes true emotional notes; the redemptive arc of evangelical Christian fiction is natural and resonant in a story of addiction. Blackstock's many fans will be pleased, and this story will also speak to families dealing with addicted children." Publishers Weekly
