In Davis Bunn’s, Strait of Hormuz, Marc Royce is back. This time in Geneva, Switzerland. Royce’s friend and mentor, Ambassador Walton, asks him to track down the source of a money-laundering scheme funneled through high-end art purchases. Marc must do this knowing there is also an intelligence leak, and he can trust no one. But when Marc barely escapes a bomb blast after finding his contact dead, he is forced to work with and protect someone he once rejected romantically. Will Royce be able to put the pieces of this mystery together before World War Three breaks out? And will he be able to recover his faith and his friend before it is too late?
Davis Bunn is at his best when he transports readers to places most can only dream of. He tells a story in exquisite detail as few Christian authors do. This gift only enhances the already page-turning, suspense-filled tale that could be ripped from today’s headlines. It is incredibly well-researched and filled with details that even a political junkie would enjoy. It was an excellent read, and I didn’t want it to end. Strait of Hormuz is the third and final book of the Marc Royce trilogy. I would recommend reading Lion of Babylon and Rare Earth, which are the first two books in the series, but Strait of Hormuz can be read as a stand-alone novel. It is hands- down my favorite, and I give it five stars.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from Bethany House Publishers in exchange for my honest review.
