I found this story fascinating, and on more than one occasion thought "This would make a great movie". From NYC's Central Park to exotic and colorful Central America, the visuals alone would be exciting. Anthony, as a young man, was faced with unbelievable challenges, not the least being his deep desire to do good in the face of almost unbelievable betrayal - even by his best friend. The author should be pleased with this first attempt at novel writing.
I love this book. The settings took me to places I have been and places I would like to go -- New York City, San Francisco, Denver, Miami Beach, Costa Rica -- very descriptive and made me feel I was there. The characters are fully developed and show all sides of life -- the good, the bad, and the ugly. Anthony took me on his journey with him and I felt like I was part of his life -- and what a life! Does Blessed Abduction have redeeming social value (my measure of a good book)?? Indeed it does. I highly recommend you read it. I look forward to more from this author.
