In Rebirth by Travis Starnes, John Taylor is an ex-soldier, a prisoner of war, and a caring person. He was held and tortured for three years before he was able to find the perfect chance to escape. He spent over six months in the hospital recuperating from all of his wounds and broken bones. John is now free at last and anxious to go home and finally see the woman he loves. However, he was presumed dead and life went on without him. He is now lost, sad, and without direction, but this quickly changes. He accidentally sees a Federal Marshal being attacked by a group of armed men and he jumps into the fray without a second thought. The marshal is shot dead, but he discovers Renata, a young Russian girl hiding in the car, and immediately becomes her protector. Renata is a witness that the Russian bad guys desperately want away from the Feds and will do anything they have to in order to achieve their goals. John and Renata form a bond that will see them face life threatening situations before the end is in sight.

If you like suspense and excitement you will really enjoy Rebirth (John Taylor Book 1). Travis Starnes has written an excellent story that will keep you turning the pages well past your bedtime and ignoring your daily chores. I was never sure what would happen next and which character was the hero or the villain. I am anxiously awaiting Book 2, because Rebirth was everything a thriller should be. If you are a fan of books by Lee Childs and his Jack Reacher series, then Rebirth will become your new favorite thriller. John Taylor has everything to make him your hero. Don’t pass this one up; it is a top notch winner.
