The 13th Tribe by Robert Liparulo

3500 years old and trying to earn their salvation.  A group of men, women, and children who live together as a 13th Tribe of Israel.  No indication that they are related to one another physically but they consider themselves a family.  A family which is trying to right the wrongs of the world by killing off the wrong doers, and thus atone for their own sins and be allowed to spend eternity with God.  This group is a highly trained black ops team with a strong code of acceptable behavior based on their interpretation of the Bible.  Almost everything is going fine until they cross paths with Jagger Baird, his wife Beth and son Tyler.

The story has plenty elements of suspense, drama, romance, and twists.  I like a mystery to progress in a way that I don’t have the end figured out within the first few chapters and this one threw in surprises clear up to the end.

Overall there was a certain tension throughout the story but it wasn’t overly frightening which I appreciate.  There was a little sadness too because most of the main characters had twisted theology that they were living by.

I didn’t like the fascination and focus on death that the members of the tribe had in the story, but it seems a plausible outcome of wanting for so long to die and go to be with God.  I also didn’t like the slice and dice scenes but thankfully Mr. Liparulo didn’t feel obligated to put multitudes of them in the story as so many writers do.

Overall the plot, development of characters, dialogue, and most of the descriptions flowed naturally.

It is an entertaining story.  I recommend it to people who already have a deep walk with Jesus and enjoy a mystery/action novel.
