The Missionary: A Novel by William Carmichael and David Lambert

The Missionary The Missionary by William Carmichael

David Eller is an American missionary in Venezuela, married to missionary nurse Christie. Together they rescue homeless children in Caracas. But for David, that isn’t enough. The supply of homeless children is endless because of massive poverty and the oppressive policies of the Venezuelan government, led by the Hugo Chavez-like Armando Guzman.

In a moment of anger, David publicly rails against the government, unaware that someone dangerous might be listening—a revolutionary looking for recruits. David falls into an unimaginable nightmare of espionage, ending in a desperate, life-or-death gamble to flee the country with his wife and son, with all the resources of a corrupt dictatorship at their heels

The Missionary is a suspense novel from Moody Publishers. Sometimes I like suspense, but it really has to grab me. This book did not grab me. I just could not seem to pay attention nor find anything likable about the characters. Yet all sorts of people endorse this book. So I would say try it yourself to see if it is your liking it just was not my cup of tea. Yet they do have a cool website for the book:
