God forgives when we ask sincerely.
Men, not so much.
Self, even less.
And the Dead....never.
Pastor Mike loves his family, and loves his flock. Life is good, but to get there he had to traverse a trail of blood. The faces that haunt his nightmares are no longer just specters, and a long thought dead enemy is about to unleash a very real hell.

Faithful Warrior is a gut wrenching, exciting and moving tale about Pastor Mike, his family and his faith. His family includes his brothers in the military and his congregation as well as his wife and son. A third or fourth generation military man and a man of faith, encounters terrorists that threaten his life, his family and the world he has fought so hard to protect and prayed for its safety.
Forced to take the terrorist war to the terrorists on his home territory, Pastor Mike and his colleagues and brothers in arms race against the clock; tracking down an old nemesis and new ones as well. Corruption, gangs and a mysterious Mr. White add to the obstacles Pastor Mike and Paul Hogan have to maneuver to protect the center of the Midwest – Ohio.
Faithful Warrior is a carefully constructed terrorist/military tinged with faith thriller. The flashbacks add meat to the story but does not take away from the flow as so often happens – rather the flashbacks are appropriate and demonstrates the driving force behind each character.
Basil Sands expertly builds the plot, adding in twists and turns in places one does not expect. Bringing in gang members and a corrupt Mr. White is genius! Building relationships between the home-grown non-terrorist and mixing them with the Islamic terrorist was a move not expected. How better to destroy America?
Basil Sands not only wrote this novel but also narrated it. I found his performance to be exciting, riveting and skilled. His ability to change voices immediately was fascinating. He brought the characters to life in a way only the writer could do – his passion of his work, his knowledge of the characters – his connection to the book made it even more gripping!
This is one of those rare books where the listener cannot help but get caught up in the story. Sands gives us the connection to the everyday family and Midwest life and then throws in the one thing we are all terrified of – terrorists!
This is a must read! You won’t look at things the same way again.
Audio production of this book was excellent, there were no issues or concerns.
