In his book, The Vengeance Squad, Sidney W. Frost takes us on a non-stop journey toward one man’s vengeance.
Chris McCowan is days from his wedding when tragedy strikes. While he and his fiancé, Sarah, are having a quiet lunch, a helicopter crash interrupts. When they investigate, they find themselves in the middle of a possible terrorist attack, with bearded men firing machine guns from the downed helicopter. Sarah, a nurse, goes to the aid of a victim, and is also shot.
From then on Chris’s life goes into a tailspin. He takes the responsibility for Sarah’s death and resolves to find and kill the men responsible, no matter what the cost. Vengeance is his goal.
But the cost is high. Turning his back on God and the church, Chris finds help for his quest from some unlikely sources: an ex-con/ex-marine in a wheelchair, a grandmotherly librarian with unusual connections and a beautiful agent from somewhere, perhaps the FBI. Chris doesn’t care, as long as his computer skills mesh with the talents the other members of the fledgling “Vengeance Squad” provide.
Following clues from unexpected sources, Chris and his new friends are able to put some pieces of the puzzle together. Chris’s faith also comes back together as he grows in his understanding of God’s place in his life.
We’re left with a satisfactory ending and the promise of more “Vengeance Squad” activities to come. I hope we won’t have to wait too long for more “can’t put the book down” adventures from Mr. Frost!
