Artifacts of Conspiracy by Dony Jay

Reagan Rainey was eleven years old when CIA men came to his house and broke the news that his father was dead. And so for the past twenty years, he and his family believed just that. But when a Russian spy named Moses suddenly comes forward and teases a tightly held secret from the past, Rainey’s world is turned upside down.

As part of the ensuing internal CIA investigation, Rainey—Delta Force special operator turned CIA operations officer—is dispatched to Great Britain to find out what really happened to his father and why. After narrowly escaping gunmen in England and an ambush in Spain, Rainey mounts his own operation that will lead readers through the spy-rich streets of Vienna and Prague and to the doorstep of Moscow. And leave Rainey staring face to face with a killer.

In his most daunting mission to date, Rainey will do whatever it takes to discover the truth. For his country, his family and himself. A truth that will challenge the very fiber of his faith and just might shake America to its core.

My review:

  A while back,  a favorite author of mine was recommending a new book by a new author. The book sounded really good, and I trust this author, so I bought that book and devoured it. The book was Warrior Spy by Dony Jay. The warrior spy is a Christian former military guy who now works for a secret branch of the CIA. The book was truly awesome, no exaggerations. It so impressed me that I did a review of it on my blog, even though it was not a book given to me to review.... I bought it.

 And now, the sequel is out, and again I am posting a review of a book I purchased. The author has come up with the perfect hero in Regan Rainey, a man dedicated completely to God and his country, in that order.

 This novel hits home for Rainey, and uncovers a plot and treason at the highest levels of the government. The book takes the reader all over the map: Germany, Spain, England, and more. It has all the pulse pounding suspense and more of the first book, and brings back a lot of the same characters from the first book. This is a masterpiece of Christian fiction, and I was so into the book that I read it in one day, which is a high compliment to the book. I loved the climax of  the book, what I was hoping would happen, and was moved to tears by it.

 I am more careful in my language than some, so I was bothered by the use of "pissed off" in a Christian novel, and would rather it not be in there. There was also a couple of crude references made between guys that female readers may find offensive, and maybe not. Other than that, I have no complaints about the book except it is now finished and leaving me hoping for a sequel. This is definitely a book and series I would recommend, especially for guys.

 I recommend reading the first book in the series, Warrior Spy.

My wife just found this blog today and shared it with me. I agree with you about the language. I am more particular than some also when it comes to the language in christian books. Thank you for introducing me to a new series. I do believe I will love it.
