From the Author
The Driver Series has been great fun for me to write. Upon leaving Homeland Security, Driver Confessional is exactly the type of book that I envisioned writing. It incorporates my interest in international terrorism as it relates to domestic security. Our lack of unity is the largest vulnerability in our society. There will always be those who put profit above the common good, but what will the average man or woman do when they come face to face with evil? Look the other way? Cower in fear? Or fight back using our unique gifts and strong relationships?
Like all of my writing, I hope I've included some larger questions for the reader while keeping you thoroughly entertained.
From the Back Cover
Driver Confessional tells the story of Antonio, a ride-share driver who winds through the streets of Washington, D.C. in search of his next fare to support his young family and pay law school expenses. His easy manner and Italian good looks lead passengers to disclose a bit more than they intended. On a particularly dark evening, his sedan pulls up in front of a posh Washington restaurant.
On her way to a midnight meeting in a Senate office building, a mysterious woman and her confession plunge Antonio and his police detective brother into international espionage, the Russian mob and corporate excess. Clues add up to danger and car chases pile up on ethical dilemmas.

I look forward to reading the next installment of the series.
The central character’s reliance on his Christian faith for strength and guidance is a major theme of the book. Also, the author treats several current societal issues, such as abortion and immigration, with a certain deftness and sensitivity.
All in all, it’s a very enjoyable read.
Antonio is a man working to better himself. He is going to law school and, to provide for his family, he is a "Buber" driver. He is a man whose faith drives him (sorry for the pun there) and when the people get into his car, he prays for them immediately, asking God to give him the words they need to hear. I loved this about Antonio because it showed him truly living our his faith. His beautiful scenes with his wife and son are also really sweet. They are so close and the author writes these scenes in a very natural way so that it feels real.
After one of his fares leaves her briefcase in his car, his life is turned upside down. She has hinted during the ride that what she knows is dangerous and she wasn't kidding. Suddenly, Antonio and his family are in the middle of corporate greed and political intrigue.
This story is definitely for those who enjoy political thriller and, although I truly enjoyed this book, I think you would have to have an interest in politics to enjoy it. I am a political junkie so this book was right up my alley.
I would have liked to have seen a bit more character development as far as truly knowing these characters - what they were thinking more - what they liked and disliked - as it would have pulled me into the story even more so. Sometimes, I wasn't sure what the character would do because I hadn't been given a clear picture of the character.
All in all, it's a good book full of intrigue and thrills. I give this book 4 out of 5 stars.
*This book was provided to me for my honest review by LitFuse Publicity Group
What did the mysterious woman tell Antonio that could be dangerous for him to know? Is the briefcase holding secrets that people would kill for? Antonio will find himself in a dangerous cat and mouse game that spans throughout the government and into the Russian mob. He sure has gotten himself into a mess. The story is a quick read and I liked how the author showed Antonio praying and depending on God to keep him safe. I noticed something while I was reading the book that really fascinated me. There is a scene in the book about someone in a casket wearing glasses. A character was questioning why they would put glasses on if the person is suppose to look like they are sleeping in the casket. I thought that was a brilliant analogy and such attention to detail that I continued to read with added interest. I love when an author can put subtle things in a story that makes people think.
Overall the book is a great adventure and has enough thrills and intrigue to keep readers engrossed in the book. At the end the author gives us a sneak peek at the next book in the series. I'm excited to read it and get to know Antonio a bit better.
I received a copy of this book from a LitFuse. The review is my own opinion.
