I found this book unfit to be considered Christian. Just because people believe there is a God out there doesn't qualify them for Christianity. Not only was it more graphic in violence, it also contained drunkennes and profanity (by the "Christian".) I was definitely disappointed that it was even marketed by Zondervan and CBD. Even the secular market carries better books than this.
During the preparation for a United States presidential trip to Ukraine, Department of Treasury Special Agent Alexandra LaDuca was approached by the Secret Service for a special assignment. Her assignment was to keep an eye on organized crime leader Yuri Federov. Although conflicted, she accepted the job that would be a challenge to her both professionally and personally. Before the action ends, Part Two of the book changes the location and Alex finds and uneasy alliance.Conspiracy in Kiev is the first in this trilogy of international intrigue. I read these out of order, and although each of them was perfect as a standalone book, the three of them together are captivating.Alex is a smart woman of faith who can handle herself well in tough situations. The locations in the book are well described, so I had a sense of being there with the action. The characters are interesting and there is ample information to get to know and understand them. There is a perfect blend of narration and conversation without either being overdone. Plenty of action and adventure held my interest until the end.Although Alex is a person of faith. Her feelings of conflict in her faith and moral dilemmas are worked out in the book, but she is far from a perfect person. I highly recommend this book for anyone who enjoys a good thriller, adventure, and story of international intrigue.
I thought that the book was fairly interesting, but by no means great. I got this book at a discount bookstore and am glad that I didn't pay full price for it. I don't usually review books , but this one was so offensive that I could not keep guite. There is entirely too much profanity for a book that is being marketed to Christians. Also, the drinking of alcohol is presented as normal Christian activity. I definetly would not recommend this book. And I am disappointed that CBD would even carry It.
