Christian military thriller review: The Warrior Spy by Dony Jay
For fans of Brad Thor, Vince Flynn, Dale Brown, and maybe even Clancy, this book is well done. This is a SpecOps super hero backed up by the power of God. It fits the military thriller genre well. Here’s the blurb:
The CIA has a problem. Its best clandestine operatives keep turning up dead. And now, as if things couldn’t get any worse, a Defense Department scientist, specializing in high-energy lasers, has gone missing. America needs answers. And fast.
Delta Force operator Reagan Rainey, on temporary duty assignment with a secret CIA entity known as Directorate Twelve, is tasked to do just that—get answers. But to do so, he not only has to outwit and outmaneuver a dangerous cabal of foreign actors believed to be at the center of it all, he must contend with a deadly assassin who is bent on destroying him.
Relying on his bedrock faith in Almighty God, Rainey is forced to race against the clock to uncover what is really going on and why, before his beloved America is pushed to the brink of war.
The Warrior Spy is the first book in the Warrior Spy thriller series. It is jam-packed with heart-pounding action, all-out spy warfare and a new American hero [who] is sure to please.
It’s comparable to thrillers by such authors as Robert Ludlum, Brad Thor and Vince Flynn, while also containing a clear faith element. If you love for-God-and-country-type books, The Warrior Spy was written for you!
I must admit, I’ve gotten tired of the heathens writing these books. I’ve quit reading them. This is a clean read, yet very exciting and compelling. I had a hard time putting it down.
Spiritually, it’s a weak four
The Christian life is not the focus of Reagan’s life. Rather he’s comfortable with knowing the Lord and thankful for the help he gets. He knows where the power is, and turns to it naturally. This is not a preachy book. Even the two salvations are very matter of fact, realistically done.
Like I said, it’s at the evangelical level. But doctrine has no place in the book or in my review of it. This is not redemptive fiction, but well-done Christian fiction. If violence and war bother you, you won’t like this book. This is a Christian warrior who is willing to do what he is asked to do to the best of his considerable abilities. I have no trouble with Christian warriors as you know. My technothriller, Daniel’s Mighty Men, is filled with them. This will work well for older teens on up to the late 90s.
