About the Book:
John Cross is a small-town pastor, bent on leading his flock to follow God’s calling. He’s not the sort of man one would expect to have a checkered past.
But the truth is that the man behind the pulpit preaching to his sheep was once a wolf–an assassin for the CIA. When John decided to follow Christ, he put that work behind him, determined to do penance for all the lives he took. He vowed never to kill again.
Now someone wants the peaceful pastor to pay for his sins with his own life. And when a terrorist out for revenge walks into the church, John’s secrets are laid bare. Confronted with his past, he must face his demons and discover whether a man can truly change. Can he keep his vow–even when the people he loves are in mortal danger? Will his congregation and the brave woman he’s learning to care for be caught in the cross fire? In the end, John’s life may be the only sacrifice he has left to offer. . .
This is an action-packed novel, with a non-stop moving plot and characters that fight danger at every turn. Right from the start we are plunged into the thick of suspense as our main character rescues the leading lady. Full of chases, near-miss gunfire, and government intrigue, A Cross To Kill is definitely for fans who thrive off action. There was the ever-important message of Salvation present, and I particularly liked church-member Lori. She was a sweetheart. :)For me personally, the story was a bit dramatic, and maybe a little too-action packed, but as I said, that is just my personal opinion, and for big fans of action I’m sure this will be a hit. :)Thanks to the author for the review copy!
