I would definitely read other books by this author. The story line was easy to follow, the characters were written well. If you like a "clean" read (meaning no profanity/sex) this you will like. The main character Taylor and her roommate finds the church assistant dead. Looks like suicide but the clues don't add up to suicide. In the meantime, Taylors mom shows up after being absent since she was a child. Lots of twists and turns and the end was surprising.
Reminded me of a Sue Grafton book.

I didn't realize at first this was Christian fiction, a genre I don't generally read. That said, I appreciated that the narrative wasn't really preachy or sappy, and that the protagonist was kind of a doubter, a critical thinker (a quality I think is important for everybody). The protagonist, Taylor, is a secret service agent-turned private security provider. What I didn't like about her was her voice, which didn't ring true as a woman. I kept thinking of her as a man, and then would be jarred w ...more

Simon Mason, of Simon Mason World Ministries, had been murdered. Shortly thereafter, nearly a half million dollars was reported missing from the ministry. The question was who and why.

Taylor Pasbury, the daughter of a former Special Forces officer, had been hired to protect Simon for reasons unknown to Taylor, although she was highly qualified and owned her own security agency. Kacey Mason, Simon’s daughter, was in college and living with Taylor in Simon’s home.

On this foggy December day, Kacey

I have been waiting a year to read DOUBLE CROSS by James David Jordan. And can I say . . . It was definitely worth the wait!

The sequel to FORSAKEN, DOUBLE CROSS continues the story of Taylor Pasbury, ex-secret service turned private security agent. In FORSAKEN, Taylor is left devastated by the death of Simon Mason, a televangelist she was hired to protect, but whose relationship turned into so much more. In DOUBLE CROSS, we see the incredible bond Taylor has forged with Mason's daughter, Kacey.

Double Cross by James David Jordan is the sequel to Forsaken and continues the story of Taylor Pasbury, a brave twenty-nine year old woman who runs her own security company. Taylor is living with Kacey, daughter of a good friend who was murdered in the Forsaken. She promised to watch out for Kacey and the two have become as close as sisters. When the two women go to confront a former worker of Kacey's father who appeared to have been embezzling from the business, they instead find her dead of an
Though not as packed with as many mind-boggling twists as Jordan's first novel in the series, Forsaken, Double Cross was just as hard to put down. The plot is crammed full of well-choreographed action and intrigue. It's proved more gripping than I was expecting. Taylor is a surprisingly endearing character, with her mix of tough/crazy-Secret-Service-chick exterior and a heart that melts into tears "at the drop of a hat". Her personality keeps the reader guessing, in an entertaining and winning w ...more

Taylor is a former Secret Service agent. At the beginning of the book her and Kacey(prominent televangelist Simon Mason’s daughter) go to Simon’s top assistant to confront her about embezzling money from the ministry. When they arrive at the woman’s house they discover her dead in her car with the engine running. An apparent suicide.

Taylor hasn’t seen her mother in 20 years. She walked out on her and her father when she was 9. Her mother arrives on her doorstep out of the blue. Taylor is wanting

After finishing the first book "Forsaken", I was eager to read the sequel "Double Cross" and I was not disappointed. It is good to note, that this book could easily be enjoyed read as a stand alone as well. The suspense and the action in this book was on a level up from Forsaken and the pages were turned even faster. I was astonished at how fast I read the book, but I just wanted to get to the next scene.

This novel reunites a mother and child in a unique way and takes a reader through a gambit o

When I heard that there was going to be a sequel to Forsaken by James David Jordan, I was thrilled. I have to say that I wasn't disappointed! Double Cross is an action-packed, edge-of-your-seat thriller that keeps you reading until the end. As I hoped, the character of Taylor Pasbury gets more of a look-in and her personality is really developed in this book. More of a Christian message than the last, the theme of forgiveness really shines through. I have heard along the grapevine that there wil ...more

The book didn't grab me like I was hoping it would. I only found one part a bit of a page turner and then the ending was very anticlimactic. If I had known the Christian element was going to be as vital to the plot, I may have skipped this one. That being said, it was a decent read for the most part. It wasn't overly preachy (except towards the end), but I felt it was a bit lackluster in the suspense area. I think the author had a good plot but just didn't develop it to the fullest extent.

It started good but lost interest for me about half way through. I ended up just scanning pages so that I could get through it. Not really sure how it ended.

I'll admit that I've put now put this one back on my re-read again list. It's received some great reviews so I'm wondering what I was missing.

i thought this was a great novel. Unfortunately when I received this novel. I didn't know this was the second novel of the series.

I'm really looking forward to read James David Jordan's other novels
