Masterpiece is a Christian science fiction/fantasy novel written by Charter Road. Haley's father, who's a high-ranking police official, has finally helped her locate her husband, Rane. Rane's been missing ever since he walked out on her after an argument they had had over Haley's faith. When she finds him, however, he seems to be suffering from amnesia and has no idea who she is, and he has no qualms in asking that she leave him to his own devices. This she has no intention of doing. The two of them get involved in solving the kidnapping of a young child in the mall where they've met. Haley is an undercover officer and is thrilled to help return the child to her family, but she's frustrated that the kidnapper has eluded capture. Using clues gathered from interviewing the parents, Rane and Haley try to track down the magician who the family had spoken with just before the disappearance.

Charter Road's Christian science fiction/fantasy novel, Masterpiece, is an intriguing and original time travel story set in London. Road's main characters, Haley and Rane, are well-defined and their give-and-take banter is witty and entertaining. Rane's forgotten work as a quantum physicist who created the small bot, Reddy, is referred to in tantalizing bits and pieces. Reddy, the bot who can change into a number of different high-tech devices, steals the show on numerous occasions with his saucy repartee and ability to emote and change hair color when faced with emotional situations. I particularly enjoyed Haley and Rane's sleuthing and their adventures in the virtual reality gallery, Jack's Masterpiece. Charter Road's Masterpiece is fun, filled with action and adventure, and it is recommended reading.

I've read this novel. It is a must read!! Amazing intrigue, adventure, and mystery with some love tied into the plot. It has a real message concerning love threaded throughout the book, especially God's definition of love. I rate it 5 stars for sure.
