Format: Paperback
Targeted, a Christian thriller by John M. Wills, is the third in the Chicago Warrior Thriller series. It weaves together two different threads.

John M. Wills has written about a subject he knows well. He's spent 35 years in law enforcement, receiving two of the highest awards given for valor by the Chicago Police Department. He's also been an FBI agent.

With all his experience, he gives the reader an insider's look into the police force and the lives of those who work there. Shannon and Benson are portrayed as real people, with their own lives and problems, foibles and blessings. And even in the toughest of situations, they have their faith.

Readers spend parts of the book with Father Matthews who is on the run and creating a new life outside of the church. They also are with Benson and Shannon as they try to track down the virtually invisible cop killer who strikes silently with immediate and deadly force. Wills does a good job of bringing the two seemingly disparate threads together in the unexpected climax.

Every book has a "thread" that ties it together. It might be horrifically graphic murders or a search for true love or the loner who becomes the toast of the town. In this case, a big part of the story was how faith carried the characters through hard times.

Format: Paperback
Targeted is a page turner. If you love police procedurals, a thrilling story and the city of Chicago this one's for you. I've read many police novels but this one is different in that the author shows a different kind of cop, one who takes his faith and morality as seriously as he does his job. These are no holier-than-thou heroes. They plainly have their devils! But they fight them as seriously as they fight criminals. Unfortunately, however, the author has created a problem for himself...he needs to top this one. It will be tough but based on his bio, I think he will be able to do it. Keep 'em coming.

A review of John M. Wills book "Targeted (Chicago Warriors)

I read this book in the Kindle version (excellent)

This is the second in a series of Chicago Warriors and it is a continuation of the partnership of two young and dedicated Chicago Police officers who are completely dedicated to their profession irrespective of the hurdles and pitfalls they suffer. The main character is Pete Shannon a life long resident of Chicago and like most city police departments there is a family history of police genealogy. Pete is happily married to Beth who shares all of the anxieties a wife of a law enforcement predictably suffers. There are the long hours of being alone and not knowing how your mate is and if he is safe. Beth has reasons to be concerned, as previously Pete was wounded in a gun battle with rogue member of his department. Also, Beth is expecting her second child and her first, Pete Junior is barely walking. While there are no issues of fidelity the anxiety can be very self defeating for any relationship.

Pete Shannon's partner, Marilyn, in the violent crimes unit is in love with Pete's fellow cop friend Joe. Both Pete and Marilyn are work out enthusiasts and Joe has recently over come a battle with Cancer. Pete and Marilyn arrest a Catholic Priest whois charged with child abuse. This issues tests the Priest's vocation to the n th degree. Both Pete and Marilyn believe in his innocence.

A psychopathic killer/sniper is on the loose and he blames and targets cops in Chicago.

I have read all of John Wills books and I am able to discern his advancing skills in weaving a good story.

Interesting Story, and I liked the Chicago Connection. As a retired CPD Officer, I could relate to many details in the story.
