Review: Driver Confessional by David L. Winters


Ride share driver Antonio cruises the streets of Washington, D.C. looking for his next fare.

He has an unusual gift for relaxing his customers and stimulating their desire to reveal more than they planned. By the completion of their ride, many feel so comfortable that they confess their sins great and small. Antonio's faith guides his discussions and points him in new directions. Suddenly, his peaceful world is turned upside down by a mysterious business woman. As she heads to a midnight rendezvous, she confesses more than Antonio can handle. Her story sends him into a world of espionage, international terrorism and danger.

My Thoughts:

Driver Confessional is an interesting read as the reader steps into the day and life of a ride-share driver. I honestly did not know much about this service, apart from what I heard on the news or saw on TV. What an interesting job and yes, I can imagine all the unusual and interesting, even scary people and incidents that could take place.

We ride around the D.C. area with Antonio, a loving husband and father, who is trying to make extra money for his family as he attends law school. Their lives are very busy, filled with love and a heartache, but they are making it the best they know how with a strong faith in God. I thought it interesting how Antonio became a missionary driver, seeking God when hurting people stepped into his car. I also appreciated that he was not a perfect man and also had to ask forgiveness for a short temper especially dealing with traffic but also with some customers who think they know everything.

We are also dealing with politics and shady characters as Antonio picks up a certain passenger one night who unbeknownst to them all, has information that sets off a firestorm of violence that rocks Antonio and his little family including his brother Rocco who is a cop.

This was a quick read and again an interesting look at the life of a ride-share rider. Throw in some action adventure and hang on for the ride.

I received a copy of this book for free through Litfuse Publicity. I was not required to post a positive review and the views and opinions expressed are my own.
