"Saint Justice is packed with fights, gun battles, chases,and narrow escapes. The result is a gripping story that will stay with you wellafter the last page is turned." - Mark Parragh, bestselling author of the John Crane thrillers.
A selection of Kindle reviews:
"This book kept me captivated from beginning until end. Grist is a story teller with an amazing ability to draw the reader in wanting more."
"I've now read this book twice. Suffice it to say .... if I were ever in a jam I'd want Christopher Wren on my side!"
"5 out of 5 stars. My Introduction to author Mike Grist and I Found It To Be An Excellent Read."
"This is a refreshingly different thriller, full of action and unexpected twists."
"The writing is gripping. I don't like using the terms 'page-turner' and 'roller-coaster' read but I can't think of suitable alternatives - they are certainly applicable here."
"Brilliant. It takes talent to be able to write in different genres and Mr Grist has shown that he has it in spades."
"Really liked the cult angle, the redemption strategies and the combination of psychological and physical challenges."
"I really liked this novel. Lots of action, some extreme but plausible situations, a hero (Wren) who is deeply flawed in a unique way, and a hideous cult. I especially liked the hints as to why Wren was the way he is."
"This was my first Grist novel, but it won't be my last. The book is well written and the action is tense and suspenseful. Can't wait to start the next book."
"I liked the plot line, I am into psychological thrillers and digging into the motives of the things people do and when they do them, so this was a good read for me."
"Frighteningly realistic. People, monsters hidden inside, with grudges gaining power and control of weaker people in our society and brainwashing them to do their bidding. Scary, but this book really has a huge teaching component -to listen and to feel others in their need. A fantastically scary read!"
"Author leaves the reader wanting to know what the main character will get up to next. Yet, unlike many, closes this story in way that works. Nicely done."
"Grist grabs you by the neck and won't let you go! Wren is a great protagonist and Grist writes super action scenes."

That said, I found the book highly enjoyable, enough so that I will go forward and read the remaining two books in the “Christopher Wren” saga.
I found the author’s writing to be smooth, and flowing, as well as both exciting, and suspenseful at times. The character of “Christopher Wren” was, in my opinion, well developed.
I also found no contextual errors, nor was it filled with typo’s and misused words. The editing had been done quite well. For this I applaud both the author and his staff, Beta, and ARC readers (if used) for a superb job.
I’ve never writen a book, although I’ve read thousands of them over my lifetime, and I hope to read thousands more before I check out and I’m glad I had the opportunity to read this one.
“If”, and I say “If”, you are intrigued by what you read in the “author blurb”, then I recommend you go through with getting, and reading this book, as it in all probability will be enjoyed. Based on past reviews, there are currently 48 positive reviews, as opposed to 17 critical reviews so the odds of enjoyment are in your favor.
Remember. This is my review, and as such it is “subject” to “my reading enjoyment” and that is all it is based upon.
The horrible things that every character in this book has done to them, and then does to others, is just made me ill at times. I almost quit several times, but continued.
I think anyone who actually enjoyed this book has to be a psychotic danger to others!
Also, the main character is constantly, beaten, has broken bones, self stitched wounds, several gunshots and more, yet keeps on doing superhuman feats! Every possible belief must be suspended to continue reading.
(Let me explain that my son was shot with a 357 magnum bullet in his thigh. It completely destroyed his femur. He survived and with a titanium femur and lots of physical therapy, he is fine. But, he says that the experience ruined watching and reading thrillers where the hero continues doing stuff after being shot! He knows the pain and complete and total incapacitation of a wound like that! There is NO possibility of heroic acts!)

Saint Justice certainly held this reader's attention from The introductory chapter through to the very last sentence. And that is all down to the intriguing g story and, of course, the excellent narration of Nick Cracknell, who reads with understated emotion, clearly, with good inflection and pacing, as well as giving each protagonist, make or female, an appropriate and distinctive voice. A fine performance.
I was fortunate in being freely gifted with a complimentary copy of Saint Justice, at my request, by the rights holder via Audiobook Boom. Thank you. It was an enjoyable read with some very concerning undertones and I certainly recommend it to all who like action filled thrillers with slightly unconventional heroes
The subject matter may be distasteful but the writing is gripping. I don't like using the terms 'page-turner' and 'roller-coaster' read but I can't think of suitable alternatives - they are certainly applicable here. The protagonist is an enigma (even his name is assumed) and his past is initially opaque but his progress in following the cult is gripping and we glean teasing snippets of that past as we in turn follow him. Very fast-moving, with the entire book taking place over only a few days (I think).
Recommended - but those with a weak stomach may wish to be cautious!
The book goes cartoon like at times
A brutal and disturbing foray into the underbelly of humanity, with a deeply flawed protagonist. There are heart in your mouth moments, parts that make you feel ill, and an underlying vein of hope, for Christopher and for the rest of us.
