Review: Feast for Thieves by:Marcus Brotherton
About the Book:
Sergeant Rowdy Slater is the most skilled-and most incorrigible-soldier in Dog Company, 506th PIR, 101st Airborne, an elite group of paratroopers fighting for the world's freedom in World War II.
Through a bizarre set of circumstances, Rowdy returns to the States after the war, turns his life around, and falls into the only job he can find-preacher at the sparsely populated community church in Cut Eye, Texas, a dusty highway town situated at the midpoint of nowhere and emptiness.
This is a wild ride of a book bursting with a bank robbery, kidnapping, desperate prayers, and barroom brawls. Before the smoke clears, all sides just might end up getting exactly what they want.

Dishonorably discharged from the Army, Sergeant Rowdy Slader was desperately in need of money.And because of this he feels forced to do something imaginable. After helping someone rob a bank, he finds himself on the run and hungry. As guilt slowly eats away at him, he decides to walk right in to the sheriffs office and confess to the robbery.
Instead of being locked away for a really long time, Rowdy walks of the sheriffs office with a job. But not any old job, a job as a minister. Little does he know how difficult this job will possibly get. I really don't want to give away too much of the plot. This book is a winner and an awesome book for a debut writing for this author. Rowdy definitely goes down a path, I am sure he didn't anticipate and continues you to grow as a person in spite of the incredible odds stacked against him.
I really enjoyed the book so much so that I think it would make a great television series. It has a lot of things going on in this man's life and the struggles he will overcome. If you would like to learn more about the book, you can at this link.
**Disclosure** This book was sent to me free of charge for my honest review from the author.
