Reviews - What do customers think about Firestorm: A Novel?
Terrific storytelling and terrifying concept Mar 29, 2006
I found this book to be one of the best I've read lately. Don't let the size of the book put you off! It is well worth reading. Jeanette Windle not only shows people growing personally and spiritually, but also discovering relational growth. She also exposes the mind set of those bent on destruction, either through the drug trade or through terrorism, and the lengths that they will go to in order to achieve their goals. She has researched this quite well and combined with her writing skills leaves the reader with the big question of "what if this is true or comes to pass?" All the while she shows us that Jesus is our hope and our deliverer, and the One who can give us peace no matter how our circumstances unfold. I am anxious to see what else Ms. Windle writes!
Finally, some good Christian Writers Jan 17, 2005
Prison did not hold Julio Vargas, Sara Conner's deadliest enemy. He has been bought out of the prison and is paid to train an elite group of terrorists-a group like the United States Special Forces.
Sara Conner is unaware of Vargas's release from the prison and settles into her new life as a teacher and independent woman. With her newfound confidence and sense of self, she contemplates a new relationship with DEA agent Doug Bradford. But Bradford turns up missing.
Written off by his own agency as dead, no one bothers to look for Bradford, or to investigate his disappearance. In the DEA's eyes, Bradford is following his own agenda, and they don't appreciate it.
But Sara Conner isn't buying it. Bradford is the most trustworthy person she knows. She begins her own investigation, which uncovers information the DEA missed, and she and two agents set off to trace Bradford's last steps.
"Firestorm" follows on the heels of "Crossfire," which introduces Sara Conner and her unwitting marriage into a family of criminals that DEA Doug Bradford brings to justice.
Windle's knowledge of Columbia and Bolivia bring to life rich details of this area of the world famous for its constant conflict, drug smuggling and strife. Readers will feel the cloying heat of the tropics and lose themselves in the pages of a thriller with a Christian hero and heroine.
Intrigue, believable bad guys, smart heroes and God's truth-Firestorm has it all and is written with exceptional skill in an arena that holds the elements of today's world, both good and bad, in a believable and thought provoking test of faith, skill and determination.
An exciting and interesting read Oct 21, 2004
Drug dealing, terrorism, and smuggling are not typically the images that come to mind when you hear the words "Christian Fiction", but in Firestorm (Kregel Publications, July 2004, paperback, 560 pages), author Jeanette Windle captivates readers with a tale of suspense and intrigue that will keep you glued to the pages. Windle, who currently resides in Miami, Florida with her family, spent much of her youth living with her missionary family in parts of South America which are currently in the center of the drug trade. She has managed to fuse her knowledge of the area and her gift for storytelling into a fascinating sequel to her first thriller, Crossfire. Readers will emerge from their experience of having read this book thoroughly satisfied with a story well told, and encouraged by a message of faith and hope.
