Prodigal Avenger: A Story of the Secret War in Afghanistan by Tim Moynihan
A Covert Rescue Mission No One Expects to Succeed–Who will survive?
Special operator and “nice Jewish kid from Hawaii,” Jake “Snake” Drecker, is intent on a mission across borders to eliminate a brutal terrorist cell. That they may or may not also be holding an American missionary hostage is unclear. The intelligence is sketchy, the objectives vague, and the chance of success slim. Jake’s boss and old friend, Lieutenant Colonel Mike “Pancho” Sanchez, wonders at the mysterious motivation behind his best soldier’s decisions–and about an equally mysterious rogue military unit that shows up at the worst moments to insert itself into their operations. That the CIA seems willing to sacrifice both Drecker’s team and the hostage only adds to the mystery, forcing Pancho to dig deep to discover the truth behind the missionary’s past. And time is running out as Drecker drags his team on a quixotic rescue operation into the very belly of the beast–a mission Drecker and Pancho both know they cannot survive unscathed.
Prodigal Avenger: A Story of the Secret War in Afghanistan by Tim Moynihan is an action-packed, Christian, military suspense thriller about a covert operation to rescue a missionary, while fighting the War on Terror.
Filled with accurate depictions of the chaos of war, the author weaves a story of patriotism, faith, loyalty and courage all together brilliantly to bring readers a memorable story they will never forget. I could not put this book down and read it late into the night. It is a true page-turner with which I was fully engaged, holding my breath through-out the entire story. About one man coming to grips with his past and his faith, while facing a mission which seems impossible to survive. Impressed with the writing style, military knowledge and the need for “faith in God,” which is the thread within this book, I was hooked on this suspenseful, exciting story from start to finish. The vivid descriptions had me on the scene as if I was actually there watching on as the entire story unfolded. It’s a fast-paced, Christian, military fiction with many meaningful, yet suspenseful storylines melding together bringing excitement, intrigue and certain tension. As a reader that knows nothing about the military, the war on terror or the words and specifications they use, I was thrilled and clearly able to grasp the storyline and plot, as the author provides definitions. Prodigal Avenger is a great inspirational story full of action, suspense and thrilling scenarios. Tim Moynihan has made a fan out of me, and I am eagerly looking forward to his next book.
For war and military suspense readers, Prodigal Avenger is one you definitely need to read. It will keep you on the edge of your seat with the non-stop action, exciting military missions and the intrigue and inspiration of the characters. Prodigal Avenger by Tim Moynihan is a book I would recommend to all readers!
