Henderson is a prolific writer of Christian fiction and suspense novels, and The Rescuer is no exception, blending a thrilling plot with complex characters and a message of redemption.
The Rescuer tells the story of Stephen O’Malley, a former Navy SEAL who now works as a private investigator. When a young woman named Lisa is kidnapped, Stephen is called in to help find her.
As he investigates the case, Stephen is drawn to Lisa’s sister, Meghan, a woman with a troubled past who is struggling to keep her family together. Together, Stephen and Meghan must navigate a dangerous web of lies and secrets to rescue Lisa before it’s too late.

One of the strengths of The Rescuer is Henderson’s attention to detail. She clearly did her research on the world of private investigation and law enforcement, and it shows in the level of realism and authenticity that she brings to the story.
The characters are well-developed and complex, with realistic flaws and struggles that make them feel like real people.
However, the novel is not without its flaws. Some of the plot twists and turns feel a bit contrived, and the ending is perhaps a bit too neat and tidy.
Additionally, while the novel does address issues of faith and redemption, these themes sometimes feel a bit heavy-handed and preachy.
Overall, The Rescuer is an enjoyable and engaging read that will appeal to fans of Christian fiction and suspense novels. Henderson’s writing is strong and her characters are compelling, making for a thrilling and satisfying story.
While it may not be perfect, The Rescuer is a solid addition to Henderson’s body of work, and a testament to her skill as a writer.
