Nightshade: A Review

Several friends had recommended this series to me, and book one did not disappoint. Max Jacobs is a retired Seal who can't seem to find an outlet for his anger. When his wife files for divorce, Max is devastated and accepts a position on Nightshade, a black ops team. When Sydney, a reporter and also Max's soon-to-be ex-wife, starts reporting on this mysterious group rescuing people around the world, will Max be able to save his wife from those threatening her and his marriage?

Most action/suspense books focus more on the adventure and less on character development, but this book has both, making a great novel. The action is from page one to the last page. But what was even more intriguing was the character development of Max, and the delicate storyline of soldiers suffering from PTSD. The author switches point of view several times, rotating between Max, Sydney, and Jon, the missionary Max and his team has to rescue. Having the third point of view, Jon, adds another layer to this intricately woven book. 

Fans of Christian suspense will love this book!
