Book Review - OUTLAW SALVATION by William Tasch
This is a riveting story--but advance warning: it is very edgy Christian fiction, and there are a lot of typos--otherwise I would give this a 5-star rating.
Two boys are newly graduated from high school, best friends. One is a Christian (Todd), one isn't (Boyd)--which, of course means Todd tries to get his best friend to see the light.
Instead, Boyd meets his father, the leader of an outlaw motorcycle gang and becomes a member of his club. At first that's pretty exciting, but before long Zev (the father) introduces him to the shady side of the group. Boyd doesn't cotton to killing, but how can he get out of this
Zev has problems of his own. Dying from multiple illnesses--mostly of his own excesses--he wants his son to take over leadership of the club, and he's pretty sure there won't be enough time to teach Boyd all the ins and outs. A crash course is necessary.
A rival motorcycle club from a nearby town--no, make that two rival clubs--threaten the gang's very existence, not to mention Boyd's.
A big event is put on by the Wolf Pack every year to convince the citizenry of Icicle, CA, of the club's cheritable nature. This year could be the culmination of their good efforts--or the end of everything for their club.
Can even the Lord bring good out of this?
