After a harrowing rescue, John Cross fully retires as a covert operative to live as a pastor, and to leave his old life in the past. However, an old assignment brings someone bent on revenge, and Cross is thrust back into the life he wants to leave.
Andrew Huff’s A Cross to Kill is a gripping story, and I had a hard time putting it down once I started. The action in the book is fast paced, but has sections that give you a break before it picks up again. I liked this style as it makes the plot easy to keep up with. Each character is described well enough to picture them, but not so much that it gets boring.
The value of the book goes beyond entertainment, as the message of forgiveness forms a central core. Cross is looking to leave a past of regrets behind and move forward as a pastor. He struggles with paying for his sins, as many of us tend to do, even after becoming Christians. This part of the plot illustrates a point that we all need to remember.
I received a complimentary copy from the publisher through NetGalley. All opinions are my own.
