Christian Fiction by Mike Dellosso
I just read Kill Devil by Mike Delosso, a new fiction author for me. This was the 2nd book in his Jed Patrick series, but I was able to read it as a stand alone book without reading book #1.
It was a good suspense and adventure novel that reminded me of the Bourne books/movies. But it also has messages of faith woven throughout the book, primarily in conversations/reflections with Patrick's young daughter. The reminders of God's presence and comfort through trials is a message we all need to hear! But there are also disturbing scenes of psychological torture and hearing voices. I enjoyed most of the book, but could have done without some of the more disturbing elements.
From the publisher: "Jed Patrick is convinced he’s doing all it takes to keep his family safe―new names, new location, new identity. But just when he thinks he finally has his life back, trained men claiming to be CIA agents break in and threaten his wife and daughter, proving once and for all his family will never truly be safe until he eliminates the agency dead set on hunting him down. Not knowing if Karen and Lilly are better off by his side or in hiding, Jed is determined to protect them while finding a way to use the classified information that he possesses to dismantle the Centralia Project. But he soon learns that eliminating Centralia may require compromising his own values. As danger escalates, Jed isn’t sure whether there’s anyone or anything he can trust―including his own senses."
I would recommend this book to male and female readers age 15 or older.
I received this book as a gift from the publisher in exchange for my honest review.
