Dark Liaison ( The COIL Series) by D.I. Telbat is a Christian suspense novel that takes readers all over the world. From the US to Rome, Russia, Germany and any other country where missionaries are being persecuted. Corban Dowler who at one time was a CIA agent and throught nothing about killing a person out right is now the head of COIL: (Commission Of International Laborers) Once Corban accepted Christ he no longer kills but renders harmless attributes to be able to rescue Christian servants worldwide, help them get a new identity and place them elsewhere to continue their work for Christ. With his many disguises, Corban travels worldwide and is targeted by many. Not only assassins but also agents in the CIA. Entering in some of the most dangerous environments, Corban has an excellent team that even though they were all trained ex military commando's they were all Christians. Like Corban the team uses no lethal weapons to accomplish their mission. As the days are getting closer to the times mentioned in Daniel and Revelation, Christians are being persecuted more and more and Corban and his team are there to help defend them.

This is a very interesting book that I found very hard to put down. The author shows us as Christians just how strong Satan and his workers are in the world. Many Christians out in the field today are being persecuted for converting the lost and others to Christianity. Even transporting Bibles to these foreign countries can land them in prison or even death. The only problem I seemed to have while reading the book was who were the good guys and who were the ones out to destroy Corban and COIL their mission, who to trust and who not to. But they all managed to come together at the end especially Luigi Putelli who I had a hard time trusting .I found the characters easy to connect with and even the secondary characters lead greatly to the plot. The plot was very engaging and will keep the reader on their toes to see what will happen to this team next. I would recommend this book to everyone. The author writes with compassions as to what is happening in our world today if one would just stop and open their eyes. You can see it all around us. As the author states at the end of the book:

"Pray for the many believers who face persecution. They need God's protection and provision. And pray that God will use these afflicted believers to reach even their tormentors with the Gospel of Christ. "-D.I. Telbat

I will patiently wait for Book 2 of The Coil Series, Dark Hearted due out in 2012, with two more to follow. It's always great to keep up with a series.

I am a Christian historical romance chick thru and thru. I bought Dark Liaison on a Lark because I was looking for something different, something new and exciting, and woah boy did I ever find it! Dark Liaison was a page turner form begining to end. It was so real, so in your face that I felt called to stop in the middle of a few chapters and pray for those who are being hurt,and killed for spreading the love and joy of Jesus Christ. I cant wait for the next book in the series. Keep up the great work Mr Telbat, and thanks for the reminder that not everyone is free to serve Jesus as I am.

I found this an interesting read. A lot of references to previous books in the series that I couldn't understand because this is the first book of Telbat that I had read. I enjoyed the faith exhibited by the characters. However, I would have liked a little more depth in the plotting. It seemed to do a lot of jumping around and one could never be sure of it. However, I do plan to read another in this series.

Dark Liaison, while a great suspense novel, also made me think about all of the Christians who, for their faith, suffer persecution, torture, and even death in foreign countries. They know the risks, yet they still go to share the Gospel.

I think Dark Liaison's story was very entertaining and it kept my attention throughout. I love how Corban had so many identities and that COIL didn't kill people - even when someone was trying to kill them.

There was a lot more substance to Dark Liaison than normal books - which I liked. Many times I found myself thinking about things mentioned in this book and how true they are.

The good vs. evil message was very well written - in the end Light will overcome darkness, Good will overcome evil, God will defeat Satan.

Overall, I loved Dark Liaison and definitely recommend it - I'm looking forward to the next book in the COIL series!!!

This was a great novel. I was taken on an exciting journey around the world, and the author made you feel like you were there. I can't wait to download the next book, and love that a portion of the book price is going to The Voice of the Martyrs and Samaritans Purse. Thank you so much.

I was somewhat hesitant to buy this book, as while desperately searching for a good Christian novel, I didn't want the usual "sappy" stuff. I decided to read a sample first and I became hooked! I thoroughly enjoyed this adventure..I don't even recall the last secular suspense that was this well-written. Who said you can't have action, suspense, drama, and everything else without a lot of murder, profanity and sex? God is indeed the ultimate winner in this war against sin and this novel showed that despite setbacks and bad stuff happening to good people, God will always have the last word and will work out things for His glory and our good. I eagerly anticipate the next series...if I could give 10 stars I would:-)

Let's also continue to pray for our brothers and sisters who serve God in trying and hostile situations around the world...let us not take our freedom for granted but serve Christ whole-heartedly until His return.

Telbat writes a fast paced action packed novel that leaves out bad language and other worldly trash. If you like government thrillers and adventure, this is the author for you! He writes in his story beautifully about faith in God and incorporates truth about what is really happening in our world making us aware of how vitally important each of us are to God's kingdom and our Christian brothers and sisters. Telbat speaks to our hearts both within the story and the information at the end about Christian persecution that is taking place every day. Praise be to God for the safety we enjoy here in the USA. May each of us daily pray for those who suffer persecution and pray for and support those who are reaching other countries for Jesus at the risk of their own lives to bring glory and honor to The King of kings and Lord of all!

Very good mystery, and a good read with believable characters. The only reason I give it four instead of five stars is that some of the material, while probably accurate, is disturbing. There is also more of the spiritual realm in this than I expected. Aside from my personal preferences, though, I would recommend this to any solid Christian that has some grasp of the area of spiritual warfare. It could be viewed as frightening or unrealistic to a new or uninformed Christian person. I liked the book, enjoyed reading it, and would like to see someone correct the typos and proof-read a few obvious mistakes. Thank you to the author for attacking the subject. Also, thanks to the author for making me a less complacent Christian!
