Kurzbeschreibung

It begins with a single gunshot, and Bishop Lynn Peterson watches in horror as a good friend, who is a member of the New Orleans Saints, collapses on the street.When a medal the player wore-a medal Lynn had promised to return to the man's family-disappears, Lynn is thrust into a suspenseful and fast-moving journey through four assassinations, an attempt on her life, conflicts with a mysterious and ancient society, and a behind-the-scenes conspiracy that reaches all the way to the White House.The turbulent, unstoppable intrigue challenges Lynn mentally, physically, and spiritually as she engages in a desperate battle with an opponent who is just as determined to kill as Lynn is to stop him even though she has no idea where-or who-he will strike next.

HASH(0x90cf7648) von 5 Sternen Good, fast-paced, thinking person's thriller 9. April 2011
Von Amazon Customer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
I wasn't sure what to expect- I hadn't read one of her books before and I wasn't sure it would be my cup of tea. But from the first few pages, this book caught my interest, and it got more intense and suspenseful as it went. The characters felt real and alive to me (especially the protagonist, Lynn Peterson), and that made the precarious situations feel like they matter. I usually take a week or so to read a novel, but once in a while I really don't want to put a book down, and this was one of those. (Finished it in two days). I little longer than most books I read, but it didn't feel long. I would recommend it as a thinking person's thriller.

HASH(0x9106b00c) von 5 Sternen Not as good as I expected 2. April 2011
Von Debbie - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
"The Dead Saint" is a political thriller with an anti-war theme. Unfortunately, there's an excess of unnecessary detail that slowed the pace. There were whole scenes that could have been cut and the reader wouldn't have missed them. However, some suspense was created by physical danger to various nice people.

The main characters were interesting. However, the majority of the characters were described in an idealized way or were cliche. Lynn and her husband also seemed too naive and hero-worshiping for their given backgrounds. Lynn also seemed to have a mental illness--something like a split personality--which just struck me as weird. However, she did act intelligently, though realistically, to the unexpectedly dangerous situations she was in.

Though Lynn visited several foreign countries, I didn't get a vivid mental image of the settings or a real feel for the cultures. We got descriptions of a few tourist spots and a generic "war-zone neighborhood." They felt like descriptions you could get off of photographs, though you could tell the author has been through foreign airports.

Lynn was an episcopal bishop whose focus was on social activism for peace and to help the poor. Her theology seemed to consist of frequent centering to find peace, removing "sin" from her vocabulary because it led to feeling guilty, and an occasional prayer to become a better person. She also talked with others about the similarities between religions and how she thinks they're all reaching toward the same God and same goal of self-transformation.

I don't recall any bad language. There was no sex. Overall, the novel wasn't bad, it just wasn't as exciting and engaging as I'd expect of such a plot.

I received a review copy of this book from the publisher.

HASH(0x91100e04) von 5 Sternen Skip It 16. Oktober 2011
Von CSR - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
While the plot for this book was acceptable, the writing was (as this author might describe it) like an overproduced orchestration of Mary Had A Little Lamb. Unnecessary words and repetitious descriptions abound - again and again and again. Similes and metaphors (mostly ridiculous ones) are two or more to a page. There is nothing wrong with the author's underlying writing ability, someone just needs to help her tell the story and leave a lot more of the descriptive elements and emotional tugs to the reader's imagination (at one point the main character's love for her husband "welled up" twice on one page!). It was a struggle to finish this book and the only way I did was to skip whole pages and read only those related to plot movement.

HASH(0x9101f36c) von 5 Sternen Tedious and disappointing 1. November 2011
Von Brian Alford - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Quite simply, this book is difficult to enjoy. The basic premise is intriguing; however, the execution is terribly substandard. The main characters are very 2 dimensional. The book is majority fluff - you'll find yourself wondering what type of editor would allow this much unnecessary verbiage into the final copy.

The worst part, for me, was how preachy and repetitive the book becomes after the first couple of chapters. The protagonist, Lynn, is extremely anti-war. Lynn loves her husband and feels it is the most perfect marriage in the history of mankind. Lynn misses her daughter. Okay, that is fine and dandy, but WE GET IT! There is no need to repeat this ad nauseam throughout nearly every chapter. Sometimes many times per chapter or even on the same page!

I bought this as a Kindle daily deal, so my expectations were already relatively low. Sadly, this novel fell short even of those.

HASH(0x9097c4d4) von 5 Sternen An Amazing New Blockbuster! 14. Mai 2011
Von JOHN KILLINGER - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Move over, Robert Ludlum, Frederick Forsyth, and Tom Clancy! Here's a woman writer who outclasses all of you in this scintillating novel about forces bent on destroying the world and everything that's good in it. She writes with an uncanny sense of the great duality informing every novel of true terror and suspense, and yet, at the same time, with an underlying confidence in the sustaining power of a God of love and community. Don't start reading this novel when you have something else to do, for you won't be able to put it down until you have read all 473 pages!
