Hundreds of human cages hidden in the desert. One man with nothing to lose.
Christopher Wren walks into a biker bar in Price, Utah after three weeks on the road. An arbitrary decision he’s about to regret.
The bikers attack Wren, leave him for dead and steal his truck.
Now he’s going to get it back.
From a secure warehouse in the desert. Ringed with fences. Filled with human cages.
As Wren digs deeper, a dark national conspiracy unravels and the body count mounts, but one thing is for sure.
They picked the wrong guy to teach a lesson.
If there’s one thing that I like doing, it’s discovering new authors. Mike Grist is certainly a new author for me but having enjoyed reading ‘Saint Justice’ as much as I did, I can guarantee that I will be reading more of his work in the future. I thoroughly enjoyed reading ‘Saint Justice’ but more about that in a bit.
What can say about Christopher Wren? He is certainly a bit of an enigma and I wasn’t quite sure what to make of him. He did have a wife and children but it’s obvious that something has happened to change his domestic situation although it isn’t immediately obvious what has happened. Wren seems to want to punish himself for something. I couldn’t decide whether or not he was brave or if he had a death wish- especially when he walks into a bar frequented by white supremacists. Wren is mixed race. Wren puts up a good fight and he certainly inflicted some damage on the other side. What is Wren up to? What’s is Wren’s story? What trouble lies in wait for Wren? Well for the answers to those questions and so much more you are just going to have to read the book for yourselves to find out as I am not going to tell you.
Oh my word, ‘Saint Justice’ was one hell of a fast paced and often scary read and I loved every single second of it. As soon as I started to read, I just knew that I wasn’t going to be able to put the book down for any length of time. I am a huge fan of action films and this book was the literary equivalent of a Hollywood blockbuster movie. I became addicted to the story and I felt compelled to keep reading. I mean that in the nicest possible way. I just had this desperate need to find out how the story ended and what happened to Wren. He just seemed unbeatable- a bit like a Terminator from the classic movies. The pages turned increasingly quickly the further into the story I read. All too quickly I reached the end of the story and I had to say a temporary farewell to Christopher Wren.
‘Saint Justice’ is brilliantly written. I was blown away by how much I enjoyed reading this book. The author certainly knows how to immediately grab your attention from the start and then gradually draw you into the story. For me, this book was perfectly paced- the story started with a bang, it hit the ground running and maintained a fast pace throughout. The action was non-stop. Just when you thought that you could catch your breath, gather your thoughts and reclaim your stomach then off the action would go again. There were more twists and turns to this story than you would find on a ‘Snakes & Ladders’ board. ‘Saint Justice’ was one of those books that kept me guessing, held my attention throughout, kept me on the edge of my seat and left me wanting more.
In short, I thoroughly enjoyed reading ‘Saint Justice’ and I would definitely recommend this book to other readers. I look forward to reading much more of Mike’s work in the future. The score on the Ginger Book Geek board is a very well deserved 5* out of 5*.
