The Dead Saint,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The Dead Saint (Bishop Lynn Peterson) (Paperback)
It begins with a single gunshot, and Bishop Lynn Peterson watches in horror as a good friend, who is a member of the New Orleans Saints, collapses on the street.
When a medal the player wore--a medal Lynn had promised to return to the man's family--disappears, Lynn is thrust into a suspenseful and fast-moving journey through four assassinations, an attempt on her life, conflicts with a mysterious and ancient society, and a behind-the-scenes conspiracy that reaches all the way to the White House.
The turbulent, unstoppable intrigue challenges Lynn mentally, physically, and spiritually as she engages in a desperate battle with an opponent who is just as determined to kill as Lynn is to stop him even though she has no idea where--or who--he will strike next.
A good friend of Bishop Lynn Peterson and a member of the New Orleans Saints were shot and dies in a New Orleans street, right in front of her. Her friend wore a strange medal, which Lynn was going to return to the deceased guy's mom, but on her way to the moms, the medal was stolen. Could it be the killer who stole the medal? And what was so special about the medal anyway? Then Lynn was asked by the vice-president to take a message to a military guy while on a trip to Sarajevo, and the guy is murdered just after he gets the message. Are these things happening to the Bishop related in some way?
This book is not a bad read, but not one of my favorites. I found myself skimming through a lot of the book because it was kind of boring and hard to follow. It was just not the action packed thriller I was expecting it to be.
If you like anti war stories you will like this book, so get a copy and see what you think!
I want say a big Thank You to Abingdon Press for providing me a copy of this book to read and review. The review and opinions in this book are mine only. I was not expected or required to write a positive review of this book.
