Here you have a guy car jacked and his family kidnapped. Carl is such a freaking badass that he ends up surviving and getting that family back to him.
On a side note,you have a guardian angel fighting freaking bad demons over a child.
I loved it and I cannot give enough kudos to Ryan Sales to sticking to his beliefs and writing a crime novel surrounding it. Damn ! He is such a badass. I cannot wait for more. Ryan Sales has no worries because he has that brass ring and he is is going to the top. I cannot recommended any higher. Grab it now. Read it and believe!! I am serious. Love this writer.
The plot kicks off in high gear when Carl’s family, on their way to visit Carl's youngest son in the hospital, are abducted during a car jacking. He fights to prevent the robbery, but he is overpowered and left helpless on the side of the road. What appears to be a random act of violence is soon revealed to be a clever ploy to kidnap his wife. The plot goes way beyond a simple crime novel and weaves in some elements of science fiction and is layered in struggles between good and evil, right and wrong, and struggles for salvation.
Sayles has impressed me more with each book I have read. He has a strong sense of plot development and this book raises the suspense with each chapter. Goldfinches starts with a shotgun blast and will have every reader feeling Carl’s pain and panic. The action is full throttle and I found it both enjoyable and impossible to put down.
Sayles appears to have the ability to waive in aspects from different genres, and do it with a poet’s touch. This book is sure to bring fans of his enjoyment and also bring some new readers into his sphere.
