""the gripping story effectively shows how damaging one apparently simple lie can be. A woman's dreadful, unpredictable love life proves riveting" —Kirkus Reviews."

“I enthusiastically recommend The Killing of Faith to readers who enjoy mysteries and psychological thrillers. A word of warning, though, it is quite dark; therefore, readers who struggle with depression might want to reconsider before getting this book.” —Online Book Club
"Loved it! Faith is a mother who is down on her luck and done with love. We've all read a tale that begins similar to this, but the distinctive trait for Faith's chronicle is the dark turn it takes. The Killing of Faith doesn't pull any punches. If you are looking for a twisted thriller similar to Gillian Flynn or Stieg Larsson then look no further. Holms creates a fascinating psychological thriller that you will not be able to put down." -- Reedsy
If you are looking for a fresh suspense/thriller, you should look no further than “The Killing of Faith” by William Holms. This book will take you on a thrilling journey of the rise and fall of a woman.” ”The brilliant thing about the book is its growing suspense. And this suspense is a testament to the skills of William Holms. This tense anticipation is the main driving force that keeps you flipping page after page. The Killing of Faith” is a captivating read.” —Best Seller’s World
                                      A suspenseful, thrilling adventure unfolds in the gripping novel The Killing of Faith, written by William Holms.
The characterization of Faith is a brilliant depiction illustrating how the modern-day emphasis on certain goals can ruin lives. Faith became materialistic, as well as not feeling satisfied with the challenges of long-term relationships. As an adolescent, she learned to lie to her parents and this deception became a familiar way in how she dealt with life’s problems. Although she attended church, she did not live a faith-filled life or appreciate the blessings in her life. She focused on “not having enough.” The author skillfully crafted an engaging story from the first page to the last. Be warned – it is hard to put the book down, once started. There are a number of unexpected twists and turns which add to the compelling storyline. Author William Holms has penned an exciting novel in The Killing of Faith. A great read!

The Killing of Faith is William Holms' debut novel

An alumni of The University of Texas, where he received his undergraduate degree in business, and Baylor University, where he attended law school, William Holms is a veteran trial and divorce attorney with twenty-nine years of experience in both the legal field and the study of the human condition—which always comes into play in the practice of law. Inspired and sometimes unsettled by his observations surrounding cases, Holms channeled his background into his first novel, The Killing of Faith.  He is currently at work on his second follow up novel.
