I would recommend this book to anyone who is interested in spiritual thrillers. I loved the set up of the book. It went from a news reporters account of the story to the events of the story. Really good fiction.
I loved how the story played back and forth between the ongoing FBI investigation and a future news story about the life and creation of the serial killer. It was a clever way to give background facts and even build some sympathy for the killer. The ending twist involving his sister was brilliant. I didn't see it coming.
This book was a challenge and the narrator did a masterful job of creating diverse and some truly creepy voices.
I am someone who enjoys audible books very much now that they exist. As a young student (real young) I can remember a teacher telling me how books can transport people to different places & open up a whole new world. This is how listening to audible books make me feel. Now if I can just stop falling asleep while listening to them at night I would be fine. Ha ha
Now that is a question I cannot answer. I am not a writer & the book already exists.
I guess the brother & sisters relationship
Yes he did
I don't think so.
Even in fantasies I want some reality. I can embrace Near Death Experiences(NDEs) and exorcism, but I want the everyday to be connected. When out of cell tower range so that the heroine can't call for help, how can she call a priest? There were many such discrepancies. And locating the killer by means of the hero's having several NDEs was over the top. And then we have his possession by the Devil in the killer.
To me, the book lacked unifying flow of story.
I have read most of Ted D's book and especially like this one! Very believable plot making it seem like non-fiction than fiction!!!!
i got this book to keep my busy on a business trip. from the first chapter i was riveted and hung on every word. the narrator made the book frightening at the right times and soothing at the others. kudos to both the author and narrator!
I am a huge Ted Dekker fan and I love most of his books. However, I've got to admit, this one along with "Three" are his best. This is a must listen to, and I can guarantee you will not be disappointed.
Well written, but it didn't hold my attention like I thought it would. The supernatural parts were not scary, but I think they were supposed to be. They were actually kind of funny, which is too bad. This book had a lot more potential. But I'm glad I listened - as I said, it was well written.
I was initially pulled into the story, but Dekker just kept adding one unbelievable event to another to the point where it got ridiculous. At first I excused it but in the end it just got way too silly. I didn't find the narrator all that grating, just the silly story.
