I thought as I transition back into my own blog writing, I’d share some books I’ve received in the last few weeks. One I’m excited to share is by husband and wife team Diane and David Munson. They are more than authors, they are Ex-Feds. As in Diane is a former Federal prosecutor and David is a former NCIS and DEA agent. Their experiences make for great writing fodder, and now they have books out that they promote as high-velocity suspense. I agree. If you are a fan of legal and suspense thrillers, the Munson books are for you.
What makes their writing even more appealing is not only do they have the resume to back their writing, they also are Christian faith based. Their books are just as engaging without the language that usually come with the suspense territory. This is true of their latest, The Joshua Covenant.
CIA agent Bo Rider moves his family to Israel after years of clandestine spying around the world. As he serves America’s Embassy using his real name, a menacing plot jeopardizes Bo and his family. God’s ancient covenants collide with Middle East turmoil after Julia Rider and their two kids face danger exploring Israel’s treasures and Bo meets a famous Bible scholar. Bo must battle sinister forces that challenge his loyalty and true identity. Will he survive the greatest threat ever to his career, his family, and his life? Glimpse tomorrow’s startling headlines as Bo risks it all to stop an enemy spy while there is still time.
What I liked about The Joshua Covenant was the NCIS/Bourne Identity type feel. The book starts with an exploding jet and doesn’t let go of the action. Because the main character, Bo Rider, is based in Israel and has years of undercover spy experience under his belt, you can’t trust any of the characters. I felt suspect of everyone in the office and around him. The danger for him and his family was always there. Given current events in the Middle East and the fulfilling of God’s last days involving Israel, The Joshua Covenant makes for a fast-paced read where I felt like a silent partner along for the ride.
I confess, time and time again I’ve bought a book for a loved one for Christmas and ended up reading it before I wrapped it. 🙂 Chances are if you like this type of book and you buy The Joshua Covenant for Christmas, you might do the same.
I received this book from the authors/Micah House Media in exchange for promoting the book.
