If you could sum up Intervention in three words, what would they be?

Timely, powerful, and insightful.

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

Yes. The topic itself is very emotional in nature and the author managed to create a tense story arc with judiciously spaced smaller dramatic moments.

Which character – as performed by Cassandra Campbell – was your favorite?

Detective Kent. His personal back story and journey gave depth to his impact on the story. Blackstock portrayed him as a kind but real character who was often frustrated by the protagonist.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

It certainly had my attention but was too long for one sitting. I was, however, glad to get back to it whenever I had the opportunity.

Any additional comments?

The author's personal story at the end deepened the authenticity of the story. Having dealt personally with some of the issues it was as if Ms. Blackstock was a friend coming alongside us in our journey.
