I just put down Rebel's Trap by author Randall Jarmon, and all I can say is "Wow." This book was a rip-roaring read from the very first page. Protagonist John Travis is living an extremely difficult and dangerous life. There aren't too many people that make their living as bait for murderers, but that's what he does. And when he's assigned to be the protector for the daughter of a man who was a spymaster in the Cold War, his life doesn't improve much from there. The woman despises him, and John is as likely to be killed as she is in his attempts to protect her.
This was an extremely exciting book. It kept me on the edge of my seat and reading from the very first page until the end. I had only planned to read a few chapters before bed, but instead, I was finishing up at 2 am! Author Randall Jarmon has done a great job at incorporating some Christian ideals and beliefs that a reader would not exactly expect to see into the story line. His characters, especially that of John Travis, were ones that his readers will relate to, care about, and continue to think of long after the book is finished. If that isn't a hallmark of a great writer, I'm not sure what is. I recommend Rebel's Trap and certainly hope that author Randall Jarmon is hard at work on his next book as we speak. I, for one, will definitely be waiting to read it!
