A thriller unlike any you have ever heard. A love strong enough to bring a tremor to your bones. A sacrifice powerful enough to make heaven weep. At the close of World War II, a shell-shocked soldier, Jan Jovic, was forced to inflict a game of life and death on a peaceful Bosnian community. In a few short hours, this young man was confronted by more love - and hate - than most experience in a lifetime.
Years later, Jan has become a world-renown writer with widespread influence in the United States. His past buried deep in his memory. Until at the most inopportune times, the game witnessed by Jan haunts him...and unwittingly leads him to a beautiful but broken women caught in an underworld of crime. He now must defeat an evil rarely seen. But there is a price. One that even this war-scarred soldier can't imagine.

I finished the first, second and downloading the third! It's heart changing!
Tim Gregory is rated on my top three of best narrators!
This series needs to be a movie! Don't miss this great book!
This book helped me to remember what being "Christ Like" is all about: to have a heart for others, true forgiveness over and over again, and most important to die daily. Thank you!
avid book listener. the brain is my favorite body part. i am a Jesus follower... i miss a step quite often.
I had to stop listening for a short period of time because it got pretty intense with some of the story. but ultimately finished it off and loved every minute.
Actually, it is Jennifer, not Michael. I enjoy a variety of books but am drawn to romantic historical fiction with a Christian message.
Intense, exciting, and thought provoking. This is the second book in the series but takes place prior to the first book. It is the story of Helen, but really has little to do with the first book. This gripping novel brings new insight to the life of an addict. It portrays the all-consuming power a drug addiction, while demonstrating the amazing unconditional love of a spouse. Yon's unconditional love for Helen symbolizes the love Christ has for us.
This book was not at all what I expected from reading the synopsis. The story was only ok - and while there were a number of references to the main character's past (both in the book and in the synopsis) this was really not tied to the story much at all. The primary thrust of the story was how this main character responded to a variety of horrible experiences and the spiritual battle for his soul.
