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.

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!
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.
The Christian messages behind the story.
Yes. There were a few twists and turns. Couldn't predict where the story was going.
Yes. It was frustrating to watch the character continuously travel back to her dark places.
Helen, because it was ultimately her story.
Ted Dekker always creates interesting characters who have identifiable struggles. There is always a strong message that shares the love of God. I always finish with a greater sense of God when I read one of his books. I enjoyed this trilogy.
