Army Lieutenant Josh Davis suffers a devastating tragedy while home on military leave. Trusting God for strength, he triumphs, earning the Congressional Medal of Honor. But heroism comes with consequences.
Years later, a conservative group asks Josh to run for the Oval Office. To his surprise, to get there, he must campaign against his father-in-law, a former one-term President. Their political, and personal, embattlement ends with a surprising twist of fate.
Discover what happens when Josh finds himself in the highest office in the nation. His pride increases, devours his faith and he gives into temptation. Observe as he attempts to cover up his sin. Witness his wife as she watches her husband’s downward spiral and potential guilt. Walk with Josh, as he struggles with his own inner conflict of trusting God. Is it too late to save his marriage and his presidency? Ascertain his guilt during his impeachment for treason and the murder of six Navy SEALs.
Facing temptations and struggling with faith, Josh Davis is presented as a guy we can all relate to who wants to do something great with his life but gets in his own way. With a parallel to the Bible story of David and Bathsheba, this modern-day story takes you onto the battlefield, behind closed doors at the White House, and in the courtroom before the eyes of the world as the president has to answer to the charges of murder and immorality. Twisted Wolf shows the dangers and struggles a man faces when put to the test. With faith as an underlying theme and issue at the center of the story, Twisted Wolf delivers a punch not just to the gut but to the heart as well.

Twisted Wolf is a modern day, fictional account of David and Bathsheba. Josh is gung-ho and ready to serve his country. He’s looking forward to the danger involved in his upcoming deployment because that is what he’s trained for. An unexpected accident leaves him wondering if God really does want him serving his country – what is he going to do with his life? Thankfully, he has a best friend, Nate, who helps him stay focused on the Lord, so when the time comes, he’s ready – once again – to do the Lord’s will by serving his country. Little does he know that this deployment will change his life forever.
Perry does a good job relating the Biblical account of David and Bathsheba to this modern day man and the current events in the present day. I found the military/tactical part of story to fall a bit flat, and it felt a little forced. That may be because I’m a military spouse, and the military is a huge part of my life. That part of the story is critical as it’s the foundation for the rest of the book, but I found that I enjoyed the story more once I moved past it.
Once I was into the secondary part of the story, I didn’t want to put the book down as I wanted to know if Josh would end up doing the right thing. I had pieced together what was happening, so I wanted to see how the story would end up playing out. I appreciated that even with the twists and turns the story did not feel like it was dragged out. Once past Josh’s military career, the story moved along at a good pace. Overall, it was a good read that dealt with some heavy issues.
