“Messsages” by John Hileman: A Review
Suspense. Action. A fictional allegory with Christian themes woven in. A must read!
In “Messages,” author John Hileman takes the unbelievable and makes it believable. Quite the feat when you consider the story line. Messages begin to take shape from the words around David Chance, messages that reach out to him. At first it appears to be merely coincidence, but then the messages save his life. They save the lives of others. Now the messages are telling him that there is a plot to assassinate the president of the United States. David feels inadequate. How can he possibly save the president? He is no one special. He is only an intern at a news station—but the messages have chosen him.
Hileman is a genius at developing suspense, giving enough breadcrumbs along the way to satisfy, but pleasantly surprising me near the end to find that he’d been holding the truth close to the chest, waiting for that right moment to spring it on me. There is the plot, and subplots, all masterfully woven together. The characters come alive with all their imperfections, their strengths, and semi-dysfunctional lives.
If you love action and suspense, “Messages” delivers. Trust me, you will not be disappointed. It is also a fictional allegory with Christian themes woven in, adding an interesting dimension to the story. Why did the messages choose David? Was David expected to obey the messages? Could he trust the message-giver? A book full of suspense. A book full of action. A good clean read with Christian themes woven throughout. What more can I ask for? A big thanks to author John Hileman for an excellent read! He’s got a new fan. Me! I’ve already purchased and downloaded his other book to my Kindle. 🙂
John writes contemporary pop fantasy with a spiritual twist. If you like adrenaline-packed supernatural mysteries from a Christian world-view, John Hileman’s books are for you.
