MY THOUGHTS.....'Millions of people witnessed the arrest of John Cross, and not one of them stepped in to stop it.'
This very first sentence shows John Cross in a totally different situation. He has been a CIA agent and a Baptist pastor, but now, he is being held in an English prison, and he appears to have rejected his faith. We know, however, that things aren't always as they seem, so has Cross really changed that much? Author Andrew Huff offers readers an exciting and intriguing look at cybercriminals, threats to our country's national security, and intense efforts to stop a nuclear war, and he places John Cross and reporter Christine Lewis smack dab in the thick of it all. A happy outcome seems doubtful, and there are increased questions about John and Christine's personal relationship. Is it possible that their friendship and on-again, off-again romance have reached another level, or, is this the end?
Right Cross is filled with intense action and danger, so there is violence connected with the CIA connections, but there are also many faith elements throughout the story. If you're looking for romantic Christian suspense, you 'll easily find it in this gripping conclusion to the Shepherd Suspense trilogy!
