Playing Saint Review

Yesterday, Parker Saint's only concern was his swiftly rising star power. 
Today, he's just trying to stay alive.

Rising mega-pastor Parker Saint was wrapped up in his ratings and his book deal. But that was before the cops and the serial killer, the Vatican operatives, and the centuries-old plot to conceal an ancient relic. Now he's just trying to stay alive.

Parker Saint is an up-and-coming superstar pastor on the verge of achieving everything he's wanted--including a national TV program and major book deal. His success seems all but guaranteed until an angry incident with a flight attendant. To keep his growing empire from collapsing, Parker cuts a deal and agrees to serve as a police consultant on the trail of a twisted serial killer who marks his victims with religious symbols. The problem is, Parker's anything but an expert, faking his way through the investigation by slipping away to consult his smart phone.

As he is drawn deeper into a web of intrigue involving an obsessive and demanding detective, a trio of relentless Vatican operatives, a string of botched exorcisms, and a centuries-old conspiracy to conceal a mysterious relic, Parker finds himself questioning everything he has been trying so hard to protect.

Playing Saint by Zachary Bartels was an intense read to say the least! I always love a good mystery/thriller/supernatural novel and this one didn't fail to hold up to my expectations. I mean, besides not liking the main character at first (I think everyone had that problem but not to worry, you'll love him by the end!) I can't think of one complaint. I loved the everything about Playing Saint, the characters, the page-turning aspect (I never wanted to put it down!), and most of all the end! Oh my it was SO good! I feel like I keep repeating myself by saying how I liked everything but people Playing Saint really is the best! Get it! You will not regret it at all! 

5 out of 5. This Afternoon Snack was so delicious I can't wait for second helpings! (i.e. I want another book by this author!) 

I received a copy of this book from BookLook in exchange for my honest review.
