This book was hard to put down, as it kind of keeps you "on the edge of your seat," anxious to find out what happens next. It does also tend to be somewhat politically charged, so if you're not up for that, be aware.

If you are interested in mystery, intrigue, detective type stories, you will enjoy Driver Confessional. ( )

This isn't always the case with me, but it was this novel's cover that got me most interested in reading the book. The colors and tones, the imagery and placement of the images, the mood, the hint of transparency in the bold title--all eye-catching and excellent.

This ChristFic novel was presented to me as a mystery. But as far as I know, if the one who commits the crime is purposely revealed to the reader way before the end of the book, and the reader is "waiting in suspense" for the main character to also learn who the culprit is, then it's a suspense novel, not a mystery.

Hence, I'd call this a political suspense read peppered with vignettes as Antonio prayerfully catches glimpses into the lives of his passengers. The story includes an international mix of characters, rather adorable family moments, and edge-of-your-seat action in the climax.

The writing style could have been more polished. There are a number of errors in grammar and places where the narration is awkward, particularly when Antonio is often referred to as "the driver." The way the narrator frequently switches back and forth between past and present tense doesn't seem to fit. Also, the characters' italicized thoughts are inconsistent, sometimes in first-person, present tense, and other times in third-person, past tense. A lot of those little hitches were distracting for me.

Still, I'm sure the Driver series must have plenty more places to go that ChristFic suspense fans will enjoy.

I must be honest and say that when I chose to review this book, I wasn't exactly sure if I would like it. I mean, I'm eclectic reader when it comes to Christian books....contemporary, thriller, suspense, historical, chick lit. You name, I'll try it. However, I just wasn't sure with this one. But, when I sat down to read it, I was quite surprised at the intensity of the story and the way it pulled me in! An up and down, in and out, twisty thrill ride that I won't soon forget!

David Winters takes his readers on a whirlwind ride (quite literally, since the main character, Antonio, is a Buber driver!) and delivers us to a spot that will leave us wondering what just happened and how can we get more of it. His characters are complex and well rounded, perfect for their roles in the book. This book really had me thinking about what kinds of things really do get talked about in a taxi cab or paid driver. I can't imagine it's easy to feel safe all the time!

I really liked Antonio and getting to know him. Mr. Winters made Antonio's character superbly unique and God really shined through him. One rider's confession makes Antonio's story fast paced and edge of your seat reading! Each page was something new to Antonio's story and really had me gripping my seat!

I definitely recommend this thrill ride to all! It's the first in a new series by a truly talented author and I am so glad that I took the chance on this interesting new read. It's 4 star worthy and I am looking forward to picking up book 2!

Driver Confessional by David L. Winters sounded like my kind of book — a fast-paced suspense novel pitting an inexperienced law student against the movers and shakers of D.C. I even have some connection with the book’s setting and main character. You see, my youngest is a law student at the same university as the main character, Antonio. The streets Antonio drives are the same as my son’s. Unfortunately, this novel just didn’t click with me. It has a just the facts kind of vibe that left me wanting more — more character development and more plot details. I never quite got what was really going on with the nefarious company men and their ties to the Russian mob. Oh, I figured out some things and assumed the rest, but I would have liked the author to flesh things out. Driver Confessional comes in at 190 pages, so there is definitely room to add to the story. I was also taken out of the story by the typos and grammatical errors that I came across. I think a bit of editing is in order. There are a few positives that I must mention. Antonio and his wife, Sylvia, are believers and share their faith in simple ways, without fear and without offending. I really liked that. Antonio, especially, sees his job as a means to share God’s love and care for his riders. He was a great example of living a life devoted to God first and foremost.

There are plenty of reviewers that would disagree with my assessment, so be sure to head over to Amazon and Goodreads to get differing opinions.

Audience: adults.

I really liked Antonio who is the main character in the story. He is a hard working man going to law school and driving as a Buber driver to make extra income. The name Buber is so close to the other name we are familiar with that I wish the author could have come up with a different name. The story surrounds a woman he picks up one night . She is kinda quiet and you can tell she has a lot on her mind. Antonio discovers that she left her briefcase behind when he dropped her off.

What did the mysterious woman tell Antonio that could be dangerous for him to know? Is the briefcase holding secrets that people would kill for? Antonio will find himself in a dangerous cat and mouse game that spans throughout the government and into the Russian mob. He sure has gotten himself into a mess. The story is a quick read and I liked how the author showed Antonio praying and depending on God to keep him safe. I noticed something while I was reading the book that really fascinated me. There is a scene in the book about someone in a casket wearing glasses. A character was questioning why they would put glasses on if the person is suppose to look like they are sleeping in the casket. I thought that was a brilliant analogy and such attention to detail that I continued to read with added interest. I love when an author can put subtle things in a story that makes people think.

Overall the book is a great adventure and has enough thrills and intrigue to keep readers engrossed in the book. At the end the author gives us a sneak peek at the next book in the series. I'm excited to read it and get to know Antonio a bit better.

I received a copy of this book from a LitFuse. The review is my own opinion. ( )
