I enjoyed this book a great deal. I recognized Jason Elam's name since I am a big football fan but wasn’t aware of how great of an author he is. This book had great action, suspense, and an awesome storyline. The main character, Riley Covington, seemed like a totally relatable individual that is somebody you would want to be like. In addition it was great to read a book that was so full of action but yet had a Christian message imbedded in the story. I also loved the fact that there wasn’t any sex or cursing present at all in the book. I am eagerly looking forward to the next book in the Riley Covington series!
