Feast for Thieves

Feast for Thieves  *****
by Marcus Brotherton

Overview: Rowdy Slater has had a rough life and fallen in with some bad company, but everything starts to change when he robs a small town bank. The Sheriff sees some promise in him so instead of sending him back to jail, he recruits him to pastor the local church.

Themes: redemption, faith, community

Negative elements: robbing banks, drinking, bar fights, glimpse of prison life, child abuse and a brothel mentioned

Positive elements: Well-written, clean and enjoyable

Conclusion: The story was a little predictable and far fetched at times, but overall I enjoyed this as an easy-going summer read. I would recommend it.

I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review.
