The Divine Devils is a work of fiction in the thriller, suspense, and action sub-genres, and was penned by author R. Weir. The opening work to a continuing series, this novel is intended for mature reading audiences owing to the inclusion of explicit language throughout, and some non-graphic references to sex and violence. In this tale, we meet protagonist Hunter Divine, a former US Marshal seeking something to put his life back together. When he happens upon a case threatening to kidnap a pair of siblings, and a mother who is down to her very last prayer, Hunter must rally his team and take on an enemy so vast that it seems impossible to succeed against them.

Author R. Weir has crafted a highly suspenseful work of thriller fiction with this unusual presentation of crimefighting and all-out action against a twisted, evil foe. One of the things which impressed me most of all was the characterization of Hunter Divine, who goes beyond the simplistic stereotype of a damaged former hero and offers us a deeply empathetic soul and a powerful psychological profile of a man with something to hope for. The plot unfurls with fantastic pacing, delivering plenty of cinematic action scenes with vivid descriptions, but perfectly balancing these out with intelligent exposition and tense moments of calm before the storm. Overall, I would highly recommend The Divine Devils for fans of slick action novels with sharp edges, as well as those who appreciate an intelligent plot and a well-crafted hero with plenty of highs and lows.
