I love a good action novel. Mike Dellosso is quickly becoming one of my favorite Christian thriller authors. Kill Devil is book two in the Jed Patrick series, with Centralia being the first novel in the series. I really enjoyed Centralia and couldn’t wait to get my hands on book number two in the series, Kill Devil.
Jed Patrick has been living under an assumed name with his family in the middle of nowhere after he seemingly rid himself of the people in the mind-altering Centralia project who were targeting him. One day, however, his daughter Lilly is kidnapped from their new home by CIA agents who are looking for an important flash drive regarding the Centralia project. Jed doesn’t fully trust these agents, so he sends Karen into hiding, and gives her the flash drive to take with her. While Jed is able to reunite with Lilly, the CIA is holding her as collateral until they get the drive.
Meanwhile, Tiffany Stockton is a second generation CIA analyst coming to grips with her dad’s recent death. While going through the stuff in his office, she stumbles upon an encrypted flash drive that has all sorts of information about a covert program called “Centralia”, and is determined to find out the truth.
Since the CIA has Lilly, Jed cannot afford to stray too far from the path the CIA has for him. Who can he trust? How deep does this covert program go, and what do they want from Jed? Jed has to figure out who he can and cannot trust–including his own mind.
I really enjoyed this book from start to finish, and hope that there is a third Jed Patrick book in this series.
