Henry McLaughlin in his new book, “Journey To Riverbendl” published by Tyndale House Publishers takes us to the town of Riverbend in 1878.

Michael Archer is a jail chaplain who makes a promise of delivering a message to the father of Ben Carstairs, a prisoner, who is being hung, although he is innocent.  So Michael makes the journey to Riverbend to see Sam Carstairs.  He discovers that Carstairs is not a well liked man, it seems he treats people with disdain, using them for his own gain.

While waiting for an opportunity to meet Carstairs Michael meets the attractive Rachel Stone and the two are drawn to each other.  Then the unthinkable happens:  Sam has been kidnapped on the stagecoach home by someone who seeks revenge.  Now Michael joins the rescue posse which is not going to be easy as the kidnapper begins to play with them.

Henry McLaughlin has written a compelling Western adventure filled with action, gun-battles and romance.  “Journey To Riverbend” is a book that will draw you in as you seek to answer the questions:  why must Michael find Sam?  why was Sam really kidnapped?  will Sam accept the message Michael has to deliver? And will the lovely Rachel forgive herself?   I highly recommend it and am looking forward to more from Henry McLaughlin.

Major Jeff Struecker and Alton Gansky in their new book, “Fallen Angel” Book Three in the Special Ops series published by B&H Publishing Group takes us on a search for a fallen satellite.

Deliberately satellite Angel-12 was damaged to bring it down.  Now U.S. Sgt Major Eric Moyer and his Special Ops team are sent to destroy the remains of the satellite and bring back very vital, sensitive information aboard it.  There are a few problems.  One, there is a Russian splinter group that knows where the satellite will come down and knows that Moyer and team are en route.  Angel-12 will be coming down in the wilds of Siberia so the team will be in a foreign country where the U.S. cannot help.  Finally there is the Chinese who also want the satellite and its information and were instrumental in bringing ti down.  All teams are converging on the same spot for the same reason and only one of them is going to walk away with the prize

Get ready for a nail-biting, page-turning thriller.  Sgt. Major Moyer and the team are in deadly danger because the enemy knows they are coming and has made plans to stop them.  Major Jeff Struecker and Alton Gansky not only know how Special Ops forces work they know how to craft suspense.  So much is going on within the pages of “Fallen Angel” and the characters are so real that you care for all of them, well at least the good guys.  There is more to the story that I didn’t mention but you didn’t really expect me to tell you everything did you?  Otherwise you might not want to read the book and I wouldn’t want you to pass up an opportunity for a terrific read.

Major Jeff Struecker and Alton Gansky have written a current spy story with an old-time flair.  In addition they have brought in romance that is so genuine it makes you wish that all families had it.  There are great themes in this book:  family, duty, country and how God figures in everything.  “Fallen Angel” is a book that you will want to start early otherwise you will be up very late as you will want to finish it.  I highly recommend it and am looking forward to the next book in this series.

Book Review: “Jefferson Burke And The Secret Of The Lost Scroll” By Ace Collins

I had the privilege of interviewing Ace Collins, on our radio show “Kingdom Highlights”, for his new book, “Jefferson Burke And The Secret Of The Lost Scroll”  published by Zondervan.

Dr. Jefferson Burke is the Dean of History at the University of Illinois in Urbana.  A man on a mission, claiming to be an agent of the Vatican, states that he needs Dr. Burke on a matter of life and death.  He is searching for an ancient scroll, another Gospel, allegedly written by Joseph, the stepfather of Jesus.  Now this scroll may discount the divinity of Jesus and it may be stored right there at the University and only Burke can get it.  And the adventure begins!

The hunt is on for this ancient scroll which will lead Dr. Burke and FBI agent, Lisa Marie Cho, who is trying to protect him, to the mountains of Afghanistan and various other spots on the planet as new information leads the little team to the next encounter with possible death.  The bad guys are led by multi-billionaire, Bruno Krueger who will stop at nothing to posses the scroll to use in his quest for world dominion.

What makes a book a thriller?  Putting the heroes in deadly danger and keeping them there until almost the last page.  Ace Collins has delivered an exciting, pulse-pounding thriller with “Jefferson Burke And The Secret Of The Lost Scroll”.  Burke and the team are narrowly escaping death trap after death trap set up by Krueger as both teams hunt for this scroll.  Ace Collins has given us a mystery, detective story, spy adventure and romance all neatly rolled up into one book.  I did not want to put down “”Jefferson Burke And The Secret Of The Lost Scroll”.  There are a number of great themes in this book one of which is fear of the unknown.  No one has read the scroll yet most people fear what it has to say.  Your relationship with Jesus plays an integral part in this book, to find out why it must be read.  Mr. Collins has created a winner with this series as he said there will be more Jefferson Burke stories.  I recommend this book highly and am looking forward to the next book in the series.
