Synopses & Reviews
This third novel in the Jude Christian thriller series provides a storyline that is as frighteningly current as today's media headlines, but with more nonstop action than a rip snorting western set in the 1800s. Jude and his wife Victoria, both CIA/Shadow Patriot operatives, seemingly have more bad guys gunning for them than grains of sand on a Texas beach. Jude has been labeled by his enemies as "The most dangerous man in the world," and the title is well-deserved. He kills or brings bad guys to justice in unique ways, and no odds are too intimidating for him. Terrorists in the Middle East have also labeled Jude as the "Shadow Man," another appropriate title since he with ease penetrates the best security systems in the world. But Jude and Victoria are on the hit list of bad guys like Bonnie and Clyde were on the "most wanted" list of law enforcement in their day, or like the players in a game of dodge ball. Terrorists, drug and child sex traffickers all feel the ire of this dynamic couple who, while thwarting numerous attempts on their own lives, exact a special brand of justice on America's enemies. And many of those enemies are entrenched in the U.S. Government. This novel begins with a bang, and ends with a bigger one. It begins with an assigned band of killers showing up on the couple's property to do them in, but things don't go as they had planned. After that Jude begins a reign of terror that targets a corrupt San Antonio law enforcement official, but it also takes him inside the White House and into the mansion of a Nazi/Communist intent on the destruction of America, along with Christians and Jews. Unusual characters are revealed throughout the novel, including a couple of prosperity preachers working for a Mexican drug cartel. The storyline takes Jude, Victoria and their team back and forth across the Texas-Mexico border and into some very bizarre and dangerous situations.
