Excellent Christian Suspense
on November 8, 2011
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.
