2.0 out of 5 starsDifficult Read
Reviewed in the United States on August 2, 2019
This book was a very difficult read for me, perhaps because I have never read a book about Christopher Wren or this author before. The premise was to save trafficked & abused children & pedophiles. It is a good story presented in a futuristic, science fiction manner. It took a lot of research to write, ergo, two stars. Apparently the hero, Wren, cannot be brought down no matter how many times he is shot or injured. Was not an enjoyable book for me as I feel the author took quite a few liberties while writing.
This book is the second of a new series, Christopher Wren. I've read both in a very short period of time and loved them both. All his characters seem to be real even though this is a novel. I like the way Mr. Grist writes and cannot wait to read more of his books. They grab you right from the beginning and you don't want them to end. Great job.
5.0 out of 5 starsSuch An Emotional, Whiplash Ride!

This book seemed to start slowly but when it picked up speed it became an out-of-control roller coaster ride from Hades! It actually gave me chills with each new development. I usually try to think ahead of what may happen to see if I am right but that didn't work on this book. I was gobsmacked at every turn and by the end I was cheering Christopher Wren on to total domination and the destruction of all the evil that permeated this book. I was left wrung out. Kudos!
book 2 of 4.....will read them all.....another GREAT read about one man vs the world with help.....he takes on a massive sized network of child abductors and the read was powerful, very fast paced.....a very good thriller that just doesn't let up!!!!
With what is going on in the news lately, this is a timely book. I thought it was going to be another rogue CIA action adventure story but it's much more. It's a warning for the times. It gets pretty dark but then as we are learning every day in the media, these are dark times. I recommend this book but it's not for the faint of heart.
4.0 out of 5 starsMonsters: A Christopher Wren Thriller
Reviewed in the United States on July 25, 2019
Chris Wren is a cult leader used by the CIA to dissolve bad cults. The current cult battle is with a large group of pedophiles wearing Pinocchio masks causing violence and internet havioc to bring US Government to its knees and bend down to the Blue Fairy pedophiles. Can Chris Wren win this new battle and save the day for thousands of children and to save face for the US Government. Very disturbing but interesting book.
Nothing ruins a book more than the "hero" that gets shot, stabbed, blown up, stays up for a week straight and still can do feats of incredible strength. Add to that a seemingly omnipresent enemy with full military capabilities that suddenly is taken down by one man with a pistol. Don't treat readers like they're stupid. It's annoying!
Christopher Wren.....ghost, avenging angel, or Saint Payback? Either way you don't want on his bad side. Some people will find redemption with him.... Others HELL. Great series A must read that once started you can't put down. Like Jack Ryan meets Avenging Angel
This is a sequel to 'Saint Justice' - and Christopher Wren continues his crusade to deal with some of the nastier elemeents of the human race. Here it is pedophilia, more specifically a ring of child-abusers operating within the Dark Net. Wren stumbles on this by accident - but slowly manages to track down the 'Blue Fairy', the almost mythical organiser.
As is becoming familiar the action is swift and literally explosive - Wren might almost be single-handedly keeping the automobile industry in business and here he adds a number of flying vehicles to the bill.
While the subject matter is distasteful Wren's drive to clean up America is awe-inspiring and well worth following.
Outstanding story, details that horrify, fast and furious action. Not a book for the squeamish, the sickness is laid out bare, along with the retaliation. Hard hitting and gritty, a stark warning for us all while still being a story that can draw you in and hold you until the last page is done. It is sickening that there are real people out there that do such unspeakable things, I hope there are those like The Foundation to stop them.
1.0 out of 5 starsBelieve there's a global cabal of child abusers running the world? This book is for you.
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on November 12, 2021
I read the first book in the series as well as this one. I found both pacey enough, they progress very well, however ... The premise that a cabal of powerful paedophiles are intent on world domination simply plays too close to the genuine beliefs of a significant number of people and I guess they'll use something like this to feed their warped logic. Thrillers can be based in a believable world, or in fantasy / sci-fi. This is an uncomfortable bridge between fantasy and real world. Oh, on top of that, both books need a good edit, there's a few too many typos.

I loved how descriptive this book was as I read each scene/chp . It's easy to catch on to where the story picked up from last .Defo read book 1 first as you can understand his "foundation" better as it's a lot more explained in book one on how the coin system works ect. Already downloaded book 3.
My kind of book a lot of action, a lot of violence. Sadly I think the monsters are real and powerful and out there so I hope that there are good people working to bring them down to protect our children. Fighting fire with fire when the justice system isn't strong enough.
