“We call you Saint.” The name ignited a light in Carl’s mind. Saint. He’d been covertly recruited for Black Ops and given his life to the most brutal kind of training any man or woman could endure. He was here because he belonged here. To the X Group. An assassin. The most effective killer in the world. And yet . . . Carl Strople struggles to retain fleeting memories that betray an even more ominous reality. He’s been told part of the truth - but not all of it.
Invasive techniques have stripped him of his identity and made him someone new - for this he is grateful. But there are some things they can’t take from him. The love of a woman, unbroken loyalties to his past, the need for survival. From the deep woods of Hungary to the streets of New York, Saint takes you on a journey of betrayal in a world of government cover-ups, political intrigue, and one man’s search for the truth. In the end, that truth will be his undoing.
- A must read for Dekker fans
I actually read this before reading Showdown and still enjoyed every minute of it. Saint remains one of my favorite Ted Dekker books and I never hesitate to recommend it to others. For those who love Ted Dekker's other novels (and/or are fans of intricate action filled plots with deep meanings), this is a must read.
- Starts slow but ends well.
Ends better than it begins. To be honest, I read/listen to fiction in order to get away from real life issues. Mr. Dekker seems to have tried to insert real life situations into the mix with some good guys dieing. I don't particularly like that. However, that's just my own personal preference. I know a lot of people who would prefer it that way. Mr. Dekker does a great job, as always, with suspense and thrilling situations.
- Okay if you want a superhero read.
Started great and was riveting for the first half of the book. It then became a form of over the top spiritual superhero type read, somewhat unrealistic and not as enjoyable.
