This book started out as a page turner and ended one! It kept me awake when I should have been sleeping because I couldn't put it down.

Antonio is a man working to better himself. He is going to law school and, to provide for his family, he is a "Buber" driver. He is a man whose faith drives him (sorry for the pun there) and when the people get into his car, he prays for them immediately, asking God to give him the words they need to hear. I loved this about Antonio because it showed him truly living our his faith. His beautiful scenes with his wife and son are also really sweet. They are so close and the author writes these scenes in a very natural way so that it feels real.

After one of his fares leaves her briefcase in his car, his life is turned upside down. She has hinted during the ride that what she knows is dangerous and she wasn't kidding. Suddenly, Antonio and his family are in the middle of corporate greed and political intrigue.

This story is definitely for those who enjoy political thriller and, although I truly enjoyed this book, I think you would have to have an interest in politics to enjoy it. I am a political junkie so this  book was right up my alley.

I would have liked to have seen a bit more character development as far as truly knowing these characters - what they were thinking more - what they liked and disliked - as it would have pulled me into the story even more so. Sometimes, I wasn't sure what the character would do because I hadn't been given a clear picture of the character.

All in all, it's a good book full of intrigue and thrills. I give this book 4 out of 5 stars.
