Driver Confessional by David L Winters

Book description:

Driver Confessional tells the story of Antonio, a ride-share driver who winds through the streets of
Washington, D.C. in search of his next fare to support his young family and pay law school expenses. His easy manner and Italian good looks lead passengers to disclose a bit more than they intended. On a particularly dark evening, his sedan pulls up in front of a posh Washington restaurant.

On her way to a midnight meeting in a Senate office building, a mysterious woman and her confession plunge Antonio and his police detective brother into international espionage, the Russian mob and corporate excess. Clues add up to danger and car chases pile up on ethical dilemmas.

My review:

  I enjoy reading new authors, and especially new suspense authors. This book wasn't as long as most of the ones I read, coming in at just 207 pages, but the author packed a lot into those 207 pages. I liked the plot, the idea of a Buber (Uber) driver conversing with his riders was a neat idea to go with. I liked the characters - especially the main one,  the suspense, and drama that came through on nearly every page.

 On the downside, I found some of the writing a bit amateurish, but  not bad enough that it turned me off. Winters did a great job of spinning a tail of suspense that kept my attention. I enjoyed the book a lot, and am looking forward to the promised sequel.

 Driver Confessional may not be as professionally written as books from the bigger Christian publishing companies, but it is still a book worth reading and was suspenseful enough to make me happy.

 I was given a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
