Twenty minutes later Daniel is resuscitated, only to be haunted by those 20 missing minutes.
It soon becomes painfully clear that the only way to stop Eve is to recover those missing minutes by dying...again. What isn't nearly as clear is just how many times he will have to die to discover the truth, not only about Eve, but about himself. Daniel will have to face haunting realities about demon possession in the modern world - and reevaluate his prejudice against religion - to stop Eve.

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.
I hooked on this author,he rules!Adam,will keep you guessing,and unable to put it down!Like all Ted"s books deseption and the battle with evil will keep you on your toes,if you are new to this author,you won't b for long,try Showdown,saint sinner,after you do black,red,white.Enjoy the journey,and be blessed.
I had to stop listening after a couple of hours. I just couldn't justify spending even recreational time listening to one over-written, repetitive, inelegant sentence after another.
A typical phrase: "requiem of the dead."
I like Jack Reacher style characters regardless of setting. Put them in outer space, in modern America, in a military setting, on an alien planet... no worries. Book has non moralistic vigilante-justice? Sign me up! (oh, I read urban fantasy, soft and hard sci-fi, trashy vampire and zombie novels too)
I'll start with the good points: the narrator is consistent and the first 5-6 hours of the story are quite engaging.
Then the religion comes in... but it's not really religion, it's some sort of demon possession mish-mash. This would have been ok, if it had been blended in as part of the story, but it becomes the whole story after the 6 hour point. No more detecting, no more solving, no more chasing, just lots of "in-my-head dealing-with-possession" type of silliness - long passages of descriptions of "Evil" as an entity.
It's like a thriller/detective story crossed with a bad horror book, but it's not scary, just sorta silly. Demon possession? Sure... but not with characters that ALL act outside of normal parameters. A serial killer might behave like this, and, maybe, so would an experienced FBI investigator having a breakdown, but would a forensic pathologist and a lawyer ALSO behave so abnormally? Naw...
I waffled between 2 and 3 stars because, essentially, the last 4 hours of it are junk even though it starts with such promise.
