The Tiger's Eye: Angels in Mumbai
Four years after the events that took place in Delaney's first book, 'The Shaft', the Global Calling organization is now making a dynamic impact across India. As they host the largest ministry event in their history, with over one hundred thousand worshipers in a crowded Mumbai cricket stadium, a radical anti-Christian militia (Indian Liberation Resistance Organization) orchestrates a brutal terrorist attack. This profoundly evil organization spares nothing it in its attempt to stop the ministry; killing, maiming, and abducting many of its leaders. When angels visit one of the terrorists responsible for the carnage in Mumbai, his guilty conscience and newfound faith force him to turn against his former terrorist cell. This change of allegiance leads to his recruitment as a double agent for Indian law enforcement, ultimately bringing justice to those responsible for these deadly attacks. Spiritual warfare rages as angels and demons engage in this epic battle of good and evil.

An American-founded ministry group in India faces a band of terrorists in this Christian thriller sequel.

Andrew Morrison helped start The Call, a Christian movement in the United States. Now that it has gone worldwide, Andrew and his family and friends plan to spend two years in India to aid in developing the Global Calling Ministry. Sadly, not everyone welcomes the Americans’ religious message. A radicalized militia against the West and “any formal religion” launches a devastating terrorist strike at a crowded Global Calling event. Meanwhile, seven guardian angels “protect the chosen”—presumably individuals serving God in any capacity. The angels can’t prevent the terrorist attack but may be able to help when one of the culprits, Sanjay Swaminathan, seems to have a change of heart. Intelligence agencies can use him to take down the faction, which brutally trained him and other recruits at a camp. Sanjay’s role becomes even more important once terrorists kidnap members of the Global Calling, including someone close to Andrew. While the authorities take on militia operatives and angels battle demons, good strives to triumph over evil. As with Delaney’s preceding book, The Shaft (2018), the supernatural facet doesn’t overwhelm the plot. The angels act more like guides; they visit Sanjay, who merely surmises what their nonverbal presence means. This supports a notable theme of divine will; even the angels don’t know God’s plan. As Andrew and his family settle in India, the author vividly describes the country, from the bad (unpleasant smells) to the wonderful (its linguistic diversity and stunning landmarks). Nevertheless, the Morrisons, prominently featured in the series opener, take a back seat this time despite Andrew’s periodically narrating. They contribute little to the suspenseful, action-oriented final act, which focuses on rescuing the abductees. Sanjay is the standout among the cast; he earns sympathy both during his recruitment and after the terrorist attack.

A gripping spiritual tale with a memorable real-life setting.
