ABOUT THE BOOK:
A rally for a controversial presidential candidate.
A terrorist threat.
A nightmare of cataclysmic proportions.
Jack and Pamela Crittendon have hit the breaking point. After months out of work as a reporter, Jack is playing Mr. Mom and working part-time at Festival Arena with his survivalist friend Brian Shakespeare. Meanwhile, Pamela has gone back to work full-time while eight months pregnant. Having her recently widowed mother on hand isn’t making matters any easier.
With financial pressures boiling, Jack reports for duty at a rally for controversial presidential candidate Martin Sterling where he expects a mindless night on the job. But when Homeland Security picks up intel about a potential terrorist threat, Jack and Shakespeare are thrust into a life-or-death battle to save their own lives–and the lives of thousands of innocent people.
Sky Zone was one of those books I didn’t want to put down. I stayed awake reading it way too late on Saturday night, read as much as I could before church on Sunday and finally got to finish it when I got back home. What a read!
With everything going on in the world around us these days, the plot was quite relevant and I loved Shakespeare the prepper. Politics, terrorists and famous music star combined for a riveting story filled with action, danger, and surprises with even a miracle thrown in for good measure! Jack’s faith played a prominent role in the story and a couple of other strong Christian characters were featured also.
This was a great book that I thoroughly enjoyed. I highly recommend it as well as the previous two books in The Crittendon Files series. I sincerely hope the series doesn’t end here.
