Item description for Forsaken by James David Jordan...

When Muslim terrorists kidnap the daughter of the world's most popular televangelist, Simon Mason, their only demand is that he renounce Christ on worldwide television, but when Simon hires Taylor Pasbury, a beautiful former Secret Service agent to take charge of his security, Taylor fights to save Simon and his daughter, and discovers along the way that some things are more important than living. Original.

Publishers Description

When Simon Mason, the world's best-known televangelist, receives threats from Muslim terrorists, he hires Taylor Pasbury, a beautiful former Secret Service agent, to take charge of his security. Taylor is thrilled to receive the high-profile assignment, but she has no idea that Simon already knows more about her than she could imagine.

When the terrorists strike, making a demand of the pastor that would shake the most steadfast saint, Taylor draws on all of her hard-knock toughness and training as she fights to save Simon and his daughter. Along the way, she discovers that she is not the only one who has done things she would like to forget--and she is not the only one who understands that some things are more important than living.

"James David Jordan pens a fascinating tale that is more than a suspense novel. An intimate exploration of the soul's need for acceptance and belonging, it touches the nerves of some of our most sensitive fears and longings. "Forsaken" is a moving and relevant saga of faith on a collision course with the brutalities of our world."

--Jill Elizabeth Nelson, author of "Reluctant Burglar" and "Reluctant Smuggler"

"Entertaining, action packed, and thought provoking. I couldn't put it down. "Forsaken" is a must read."

--Patricia Rushford, author of "Deadly Aim" and "As Good as Dead"

"With more twists and turns than a rip-roaring rollercoaster ride, "Forsaken" will keep you guessing right to final page. You'll find no easy answers here but many to consider."

--Ken Abraham, "New York Times" bestselling author

"I have read many enthralling suspense novels, meaningful love stories, and books that challenged my thinking and purpose, but never has a novel combined all three elements with such adeptness as "Forsaken.""

Reviews - What do customers think about Forsaken?

Forsaken  May 17, 2010
Great book! I couldn't put it down. Excellently written! I loved it!
A First Novel Worth Reading  Jan 8, 2010
I've read many first novels from different authors. Initially I was skeptical about FORSAKEN from reading the back cover. A man, James David Jordan is writing through the first-person eyes of former Secret Service agent Taylor Pasbury (a woman).

From the first page, I forgot about my skepticism and plunged into a fascinating story. Other reviews have described the plot but it's filled with plenty of twists and unexpected turns to keep you turning the pages. FORSAKEN is a winner and recommended.
Girl Kick Bum Action  Nov 12, 2009

What an intriguing story through former Secret Service now Private Security Personnel Taylor Pasbury's eyes. The entire novel is told in a recitation with bits of humor as if in a verbal report. As a huge Alias/spy-type fan this story was a great fit in genre for me. It is shocking that I had not found author James David Jordan's work before, and now that I have I plan to read much more. I'm especially excited that as soon as I finish this review, I can start reading the sequel to this novel "Forsaken" which is called "Double Cross".

Including some of the nit and gritty, this is a very realistic tale that brings to light the good and bad in people. Strength and forgiveness of ones-self are themes as well as terrorism plots and rescue attempts. This was one of those books where when I had to put it down to tend to something else I was amazed at how far I had already read. A page turner and a tool to delve into realism issues of the reader's own-self is only part of what makes this a great book. Highly recommended.
Great Premise with Lots of Potential  Aug 5, 2009
In "Forsaken", James David Jordan weaves an exciting, page-turning tale about a troubled young woman with a tragic past, Taylor, hired as a security officer by a televangelist, Simon, after he receives threats from Muslim extremists. The story is told from Taylor's perspective as she becomes intricately involved in the lives of Simon and his young-adult daughter, Kacey. Almost immediately, Taylor becomes a integral part of this small family, caught up in the seemingly endless task of protecting Simon and Kacey against a bombing, a kidnapping, an attack from a crazed, religious fanatic and more terrorist threats.

Jordan is an eloquent writer, skillfully painting his characters with spunk and humor. "Forsaken" moved along quickly, with nary a lag in the plot. While this was a good book, however, I can't help but think that with practice Jordan will become an even better story-teller. This book had a great premise with lots of potential, but as I finished the last page, I felt a nagging disappointment in the book's overall impact.

Taylor, though immensely winsome and likable, doesn't develop much beyond her character's introduction. Even her battle with alcoholism feels like an entertaining and unnecessary side story, rather than a springboard for depth and insight. In fact, there were several sub-plots in "Forsaken" that did little to further the story's forward movement and fizzled out before Jordan brought them to fruition. In the end, it seemed as though Simon's influence in Taylor's life was more superficial than spiritual.

In addition, it was hard for me to forgive and forget the silly, nonsense notion that terrorists would perform a sterile, surgical procedure, complete with general anesthesia, to cut someone's finger off. Terrorists are brutal, inhumane, radical, and violent...hardly the type of people to worry about a hostage's pain level and risk of infection enough to hire a surgical team. And since the missing finger was a recurring topic, I was repeatedly reminded of this ridiculous detail.

"Forsaken" was entertaining enough that I look forward to watching Jordan develop as an author. He has the ability to tell an engaging story full of action, humor, and suspense as he keeps his reader wondering what will happen next. His characters are colorful, yet mysterious, and the story was both exciting and thought-provoking.
Secrets and Mysteries Abound  Jul 30, 2009
If you're searching for a real page turner, you'll enjoy and applaud James David Jordan's Christian Suspense novel, Forsaken. You can't outguess the main characters--Taylor Pasbury, a beautiful, tough and sensitive former Secret Service agent hired to protect Simon Mason, single dad and world famous televangelist, just before his daughter Kacey is kidnapped by Muslim terrorists who demand Simon publically renounce his faith, or they'll kill her. Each character is well drawn, flawed and intriguing. Each rarely acts or reacts as you'd expect. From beginning to end, the story's intensity resembles the television show 24. This plot skeleton is not strung from alls-well-that-ends-well bones. You'll cheer. You might shed tears. Secrets and mysteries abound. As does the power of love, the tenuous line between faith, what it takes to break, and how hard following Jesus' teaching can be when your child's life is endangered. Highly recommended for all.
