Reviewed by George McVey for Readers' Favorite

"Raider’s Vendetta" is in reality the story of two people, Charley, an elderly Christian lady and Arthur called Raider. The story begins with Charley becoming one of several hostages Raider takes during a bank robbery that goes bad.

As a pastor, I love Christian fiction that points others to God or to a growth in their faith. This tale is one of those. The writer allows us to see the struggles she herself must have had with faith and asks some very difficult questions of God through her characters. She doesn’t leave us without answers, though. It is obvious that she has struggled with these questions herself and come up with answers that she can accept. The story itself is full of twists, turns, surprises and action from start to finish. "Raider’s Vendetta" is well written and thoroughly engaging. I would recommend it highly and give it five stars only because I can’t give it more. Just when you think you got the storyline all figured out this tale twists again. Not only do you see how Raider's and Charley's choices affect them, but how others are affected. Most importantly, you see how God's love and mercy overshadows every experience and how far he might go to reach one "lost lamb". Yes, this is a work of fiction but every miracle, every instance of HIS love, could happen and have happened in the real world. Again I give this book a must read status for anyone with questions about God or faith.
