Well's, Forgiving Solomon Long~ Reviewed

Review of Forgiving Solomon Long
By Chris Well
Harvest House Publishers
ISBN 0-7369-1405-6
280 Pages


A page-turning crime thriller that sizzles with action! Crime boss Frank "Fat Cat" Catalano has his fingers in nearly every business sector of Kansas City. But a coalition of local storeowners and clergy have had enough---and enlist the help of Detective Tom Griggs. Can they catch "the Cat" before they become the mice?

I really had no idea what to expect with this book. I didn’t expect the thrill and fast pace that this story delivers. I was surprised at the intensity, actually feeling my own heart beating fast on numerous occasions.

Chris Well’s writing is edgy and engrossing. Great characters and witty dialogue wrapped in a plot that will keep you guessing until the end - I was unprepared for the twists and turns and never figured it all out until it unfolded on the last few pages.

I read the last page several days ago and have yet to quit thinking of Solomon Long. Yes, it is a story of organized crime and all the evil that goes with that, but it’s ultimately a story of God’s power and His pursuit of us, no matter what we’ve done.
