Ride share driver Antonio cruises the streets of Washington, D.C. looking for his next fare.
He has an unusual gift for relaxing his customers and stimulating their desire to reveal more than they planned. By the completion of their ride, many feel so comfortable that they confess their sins great and small. Antonio's faith guides his discussions and points him in new directions. Suddenly, his peaceful world is turned upside down by a mysterious business woman. As she heads to a midnight rendezvous, she confesses more than Antonio can handle. Her story sends him into a world of espionage, international terrorism and danger.

I really liked Antonio who is the main character in the story. He is a hard working man going to law school and driving as a Buber driver to make extra income. The name Buber is so close to the other name we are familiar with that I wish the author could have come up with a different name. The story surrounds a woman he picks up one night . She is kinda quiet and you can tell she has a lot on her mind. Antonio discovers that she left her briefcase behind when he dropped her off.
What did the mysterious woman tell Antonio that could be dangerous for him to know? Is the briefcase holding secrets that people would kill for? Antonio will find himself in a dangerous cat and mouse game that spans throughout the government and into the Russian mob. He sure has gotten himself into a mess. The story is a quick read and I liked how the author showed Antonio praying and depending on God to keep him safe. I noticed something while I was reading the book that really fascinated me. There is a scene in the book about someone in a casket wearing glasses. A character was questioning why they would put glasses on if the person is suppose to look like they are sleeping in the casket. I thought that was a brilliant analogy and such attention to detail that I continued to read with added interest. I love when an author can put subtle things in a story that makes people think.
Overall the book is a great adventure and has enough thrills and intrigue to keep readers engrossed in the book. At the end the author gives us a sneak peek at the next book in the series. I'm excited to read it and get to know Antonio a bit better.
I received a copy of this book from a LitFuse. The review is my own opinion.
