For Joe Tenning, its been almost 25 years since he’s had any dealings with his father. After years of constantly moving from small town to small town every few months without family or friends, he finally had enough. At age 16 he'd simply left. Now Joe is unexpectedly called to the bedside of Charles Tenning. Why now after all these years? After mulling it over, he finally agrees to go. Once there, in a small Texas town, all his memories and pent up anger begin to resurface. He reluctantly visits his father and the old animosity quickly resurfaces. After around 10 minutes, he’s shown the door and told to return the next day. However, what happens next will change him forever. After following his father's last wishes, he finds out about the strange and ethically questionable work in which his father has been covertly engaged. Then people start to die.

Uncertain whom to trust, Joe accepts the help of Dr. Lillian Kent who has known his father for many years. Desperately wanting to return to his quiet life running his winery, he now finds himself in the middle of something much larger than he could ever have anticipated. He must now find answers, and quickly, before his friends and family are also placed in danger.

I wasn’t sure what to expect when I started reading Promise of Protection by Diane M. Dresback. I’m glad I did. This story is well crafted and the suspense continues to build as the protagonist starts to learn more and more. I found the story line reminiscent to one by Michael Crichton; well plotted with interesting characters and good dialogue. Overall, a very good book. Well done.
