Teresa S. Mathews Reviews DISILLUSIONED by Christy Barritt

Disillusioned by Christy Barritt


Reviewed by Teresa S. Mathews

5 Stars*****

Once again Christy Barritt has written a very gripping novel that you will find yourself drawn into from the very first page. While reading it you may have a sense of déjà vu as the story line is somewhat similar to a real life “ripped from the headlines” story from a couple years ago here in the US. In fact, while reading Ms. Barritt’s story, I began to think how a totally different situation could have been possible in that case.

When Nikki Wright received word her Navy Seal brother, Bobby, had escaped from a terrorist camp in Colombia, South America where he had been held captive, all she wanted to do was to get Bobby home safe. She also wanted to make sure he got the help he needed. Never would she think their country would start spreading lies that he was in with the terrorists. Turning to a family friend for legal help, Nikki is sure she will be able to get Bobby the help he needs before handing him over to the government for debriefing. After a close encounter with someone trying to kill them, Nikki isn’t sure who can be trusted.

Even though Bobby is acting paranoid and unstable he knows the only person he can trust to help him and Nikki is Kade Wheaton, another former Seal. Nikki was not happy with that call, since she has yet to forgive Kade for what she sees as an unforgivable betrayal.

On the run Nikki has to come to terms with her feelings of disillusionment with her country, with the abandonment of a God who stopped caring about her years ago and deal with her fickle heart that still seems to beat for Kade; all while trying to convince her country of her brother’s innocence in what appears to be an upcoming terrorist attack!!

I will have to say Christy Barritt is one of the most talented suspense writers ever! Each one of her books I’ve read leave you feeling like you’ve just taken an exhilarating walk, no, maybe a jog, or better yet a run for your life! Just when you think you might have figured out who is causing all the madness, murder or mayhem, she shocks you with something out of the blue and you end up going WOW!! Thank you Ms. Barritt for adding some much needed excitement to my life!!
