Wow! What a page turner! Excellent plot to keep it thrilling, and yet the flashbacks and memories add depth to Charlie so that he remains a normal human. I thoroughly enjoyed these books. I also loved how Charlie has found truth and refuses to sell it. I can't say that he's the most well taught christian, but he knows that God is with him and for him. If you are looking for a book with adventure, mystery, and a character who refuses to give up even when all the odds are against him, this is an excellent book for you. And, there are three more books in the series!
