(2006)Another gripping violent thriller. Imagine my surprise when I learn that on Amazon, he is considered a Christian thriller writer. There is nothing Christian about the murder and mayhem that are integral to the 2 books I have read by this author."We call you Saint."The name ignited a light in Carl's mind. Saint.

Action Packed. A great continuation! ( )

a sequel to Showdown, of sorts. A man has been stripped of his very identity and memories and rebuilt, many times. He is an assassin. He doesn't know when something is a test or the real thing as he is conditioned. He is sent to kill the US President but meets up with Samuel and David Abraham from Showdown. Turns out he is Johnny from Paradise and he has special powers. He comes to a showdown of his own with a fictitious character named The Englishman who has similar powers. Johnny ends up 'believing' and loses his normal eyesight but gains something like Ghostriders soulsear eyesight or something. Also uses 2 sentences to tie in House, which I thought was wicked cool. Pretty shallow, but I enjoyed it. ( )

I loved the book. I was so confused in the beginning of the trilogy, but at least Ted made it where you would eventually understand no matter what book you read first. I started with Saint, then read Sinner, and finished with Project Showdown. I related best to the little girl. When Kat died I cried all night. It was around midnight when I finished the book and I went to my mother balling. You know you've found an amazing author when you find hope for yourself through a character. Yet another miracle of art, Ted. Good job. ( )
