    When a stranger named Marsuvees Black appears in Paradise, he brings with him a message of hope and love. Or is it death and hate? Perhaps neither - perhaps both. He seems to know too much about the town's many unspoken secrets, and he himself holds the greatest secret of them all. As black clouds and sandstorms envelop the town, it becomes almost impossible to get in or out. It quicky becomes apparent that Paradise is being isolated for a reason. But why?

    Would you try another book from Ted Dekker and/or Kevin King?

    As much as I've read Christian fiction, maybe I'm just not into completely unrealistic and stupid writing. This is the most stupid book I've ever read. I'm not even sure I want to finish it. Ugh.

    Has Showdown turned you off from other books in this genre?

    Yes.

    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    I guess I'll know if I decide to finish it. I'm far more than halfway through. So far, no.


    Any additional comments?

    Yuck. Yuck. Yuck.
