This book starts off with Lisa (our main female) walking into an exact replica of the police precinct where she works. A man has been tortured before being murdered and this is where the lead takes her.
There is a lot of action in this book and you are quickly swept away with it all. Unfortunately for me, I wasn't swept away enough to ignore the questions that weren't answered or the contradictions given.
If you are wondering why there is an exact replica of the police precinct, prepare to keep on wondering. This is never answered. Nor is the case ever solved or do you find out anything else about betrayal and corruption as the subject is dropped like a hot potato about halfway through. Lisa is a woman who has perfected half a dozen different forms of unarmed combat according to Rafferty but who is quickly overpowered in her own home with hardly a struggle or fight being put up. Lisa is also someone who was raised in a highly unpredictable, untrustworthy and abusive home from birth until 16 but trusts Flint "instinctively" even though he lies constantly and she is never quite sure what his motives are. But hey, it's okay, it's Flint. She has only spent a very short amount of time with him before declaring her love. I think the ultimate for me though had to be towards the end of the book when they are finally alone and about to act upon their feelings for each other. Lisa says that it's not right to do it before marriage. This is when Flint drops his bombshell that they ARE actually married. He tricked her into signing the forms without her knowledge or consent - AND SHE'S OKAY WITH THIS!!!
Then, at around the 50% mark of the book, I felt like I was suddenly sat in church reading the bible. This book turned from being an action/adventure story into a sermon. If I wanted to be preached to I would visit a church of my choosing at my time. The rest of the story is peppered with tales from the bible, biblical references and mentions of faith.
If you are looking for a Christian action and adventure book where they won't have sex until after she has a ring on her finger then you will probably enjoy this book.

Explosions, fabulous wealth, psychopathic killers, exotic locations, murder, betrayal, and romance, all make Agent With A History one heck of a wild ride.
Non-stop action and adventure that will keep both men and women glued to their e-readers. Guy Stanton III has penned a story that both genders can read and enjoy.
I started expecting to work on it over the weekend, I wound up finishing it in one day.
In many ways I was reminded of Indiana Jones but with an element of faith added into the adventure. I think one of the better aspects of the story is that it not only reads much like an adventure movie but it also conjured up that reader's mental movie-screen.
Page-turning, thrill-a-minute reading without all of the garbage usually slipped into the genre. If you love those over-the-top adventure films, you know the ones, chases, agents and guys you don't know what side they are on, terrorists, bombs in cases, secrets taken the grave, beautiful women and handsome-but-dangerous men, well Agent With A History just might be the story for you.
One thing I will note is that there is some adult content, not explicit, but I probably wouldn't suggest it for kids.
Action-packed adventure is waiting for you on the digital page . . .
(I received an e-book copy from the author in exchange for my review. All opinions are my own.)

I was given this book in exchange for an honest review.
I love the story but the form was a little confusing. I had a hard time keeping track of who was narrating since it would go from first person to third. Even though that was a little hard to keep up with the story was captivating. It was a story with twists and turns and fast paced. Would love to read more from this author and more in this series.
