Back in March, I told you about a book called Annabel Lee by Mike Nappa. At that time, I told you I loved this book, and the author was coming out with a new one called The Raven. I was hoping I would be selected to read and review this book when it came out this month. Fortunately for me, I was!
Mike Nappa nails the faith-based, suspense, edge-of-your-seat, thriller, yet again.
In the beginning, the good guys are indistinguishable from the bad guys. That is what makes the book so captivating. Right about the time you think you have it figured out, Mike drops some plot twist in your lap.
Told in differing points of view, the reader is taken on a journey through political, mob, and blue collar perspectives.
Through the main character, The Raven, we learn of the city councilman’s ‘extra-curricular’ activities. Through Sister/Mama Bliss, we learn of the heartbreak that comes with living in a crime infested area of Atlanta. Through Trudi, we learn of her unwavering dedication to truth and justice.
Why are Mama Bliss and Max secretly meeting?
Who did the gift of an all expenses paid trip to Hawaii for Samuel and Trudi come from?
What is The Raven running from in his past?
How did The Raven come to work for Mama Bliss?
These are some of the many questions that will arise when engaged in reading The Raven.
Once again, Mike Nappa writes a stellar novel that has hairpin twists and turns, some romance, an element of faith and Christianity, and is clean. Clearly, Mike doesn’t need to fill his books with gore or sex to sell them. His writing ability and his intriguing characters sell his books for him.
If you haven’t picked up on it, I would highly recommend this book! Mike Nappa has a fan in this reader.
