Paperback: 311 pages

"The Firstborn, those gifted with Foresight, Hindsight, and Insight at the time of Christ's death are divided between themselves. And when an Islamic holy man is murdered outside of his mosque it becomes apparent that one of the Firstborn was to blame. Now, with the threat of a terrorist attack on an unspeakable target the Firstborn are spiraling out of control. Leaders are dying, members are being kidnapped, and unity is being forced. Three heroes, differently gifted and divided must work together to thwart those who would go too far. Their breakneck race against time plunges them into a world of danger and through a gauntlet across the United States. From the River-walk of San Antonio, where Devin Bathurst, John Temple, and Hannah Rice must protect one another from assassination, to the gritty streets of Washington DC, a paramilitary compound in West Virginia, and ultimately back to our nation's Capital, the Firstborn must unite to prevent an impending atrocity from becoming reality."
This is a really exciting book! It has the feel of an espionage spy thriller, with a Christian basis. I thought the book was terrific and it kept me completely absorbed. While there is violence within the book, I didn't think it was excessive or out of place within the story. But if this is something you don't like, you might want to think twice about this book. This book was a thrill ride from beginning to end and was just plain fun. I also didn't think that the Christian side to the book was excessive either and this would be a book that would appeal and surprise readers of non-Christian books. This is Brown's first book and I can't wait to see what he comes up with next. On a five star scale I'd give this one 5 stars.
