A Virgil Flowers Novel, Book 11
Holy Ghost has all the things a suspense thriller should have. The author John Stanford presented this book just the way all his books have panned out. It leaves the reader/listener guessing what could be the next action until it comes upon them. That’s the hallmark of a true suspense thriller. Initially, it seems it will be easy to figure out who the perpetrators were, but as the book progresses, you wouldn’t be so sure yourself.
Eric Conger also did a very good narrating job for the book. Just like he did in Bloody Genius, the characters were correctly represented, each with a befitting diction that suits their respective roles. If you’ve loved any book written by John Stanford, you will surely love this one too.
If you don’t know already, Holy Ghost is the 11th series in the Vigil Flower Novel. What is still surprising is how John Stanford has managed to stay consistent with plot development and character representation throughout the series.
The story started with a religious hoax that goes terribly wrong. After about 2 sniper shootings in a church, Vigil Flowers was asked to investigate the killings. Vigil carried out his investigations in a different way as he called in his two old friends Jenkins and Shrake to help. The story is filled with intrigues as there is end-to-end action from the beginning of the novel till the end.
All the characters used by the author performed their roles exceptionally well. If you love any character from the beginning, you will love them till the end. The same thing is applicable to any character you hate from onset. The book is consistent but has a great deal of suspense that will keep you stationed until you come to the end of it.
