A Review for Spirit by Andrew Feder
Randall Lender was a Wanted Man. He was wanted by the Clergy of the Major Organized Religions, the Governments and the New World Order, but that was the least of his problems. After going out of body (astral projection) Randall Lender suddenly found himself in such a paradox where the surrealism meets dilemma. Within this phenomenon of Looking Through the Hour Glass he unfortunately after leaving his physical body ended up into another's. This was his paradox. This was his dilemma. This was his surrealism. And regrettably for Lender this was the real quantum problem. Randall Lender found himself on an unexpected journey with its twists and turns until he realizes that he must die to live for his return to his former body. And now the elixir of questions remains: What? How? And Why? Then you'll ask why me? Why him? And What If?
Randall Lender has alot of enemies!
He was once a very wealthy man, but has since lost his money and now he is very vocal in sharing his beliefs against secret societies, organized religion and government. So needless to say he has made some very important people angry, and the really just want him gone. Unfortunately for Randall that's the least of his worries because one afternoon while astral projecting his soul is rerouted and he winds up in someone else's body.
Could it get worse than that? Ohhhh yeah because when he wakes up in the other body he realizes that person has just committed a murder. Turns out he is in the body of Johnny Mackenzie, a hit man who had been hired by the Marzotti family to murder a stripper that could identify one of the family members in a murder they had committed.
So when Randall starts telling the police who he is now mind you he is in Johnny's body no one believes him. They actually think he is just using this as a way to be able to cop an insanity plea and avoid the death penalty for the murder.
Don't let the fact that this book is very slow to start, keep you from reading it, because once it gets going it has several twists that keeps you hooked till the end. I would have to caution that the author does use some unsavory language that might be off putting to some. I would give this book a 4.5 on the rating scale. Woulda given it a 5 except for the language......
Thanks to The Candence Group for providing a copy of this book for me to review.
