Publisher's Summary

FBI behavioral psychologist Daniel Clark has been made famous by his argument that religion is one of society's greatest antagonists. What Daniel doesn't know is that his obsessive pursuit of a serial killer - known only as "Eve" - will end in his own death at Eve's hand.

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.

    "Adam"

    Kept me locked with both ears to the speakers. Had a hard time stoping do to others things. Ted Dekker has a great way to keep his readers, in this case, his listners on the edge. Look forward to more from this Author.

    "Snatching defeat from the jaws of victory"

    After an interesting start and premise the book slowly slides into a predictable and boring conclusion.

    In film, one talks about the "suspension of disbelief" and for this book that same effect is required... but I, for one, was hard pressed to find a basis to buy into the characters or plot past the half-way point.

    "Great page turner"
    If you could sum up Adam in three words, what would they be?

    Fast-paced, clever, informative


    Have you listened to any of the narrator’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    First time I listened to narrator, who did a great job


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes


    Any additional comments?

    This is a clever story which addresses some interesting questions. It is clear that Dekker researched his material very well. His character developments were done really well, and he clearly has insight into both religious and non-religious minds.

    "Adam"

    Story
    "Sensationalism"

    This book is about a serial killer, driven (literally) by internal demons. There are aspects of this book that are inventive and spellbinding, such as the 9 part crime magazine expose of the man of sorrow (the serial killer Alex Price and his sister who are abducted at the beginning of the book), which give the narration of the chronological development of the serial killer. Then, there are aspects of the story which are contrived and unbelievable and detract from the value of the book. This includes resuscitation of a thee hero, Daniel Clark, dead for 21 + minutes and having him back at work the next day. And then, deliberately stopping the same man's heart to get a NDE (near death experience- which happens quite frequently here) image and then resuscitating him in a pathology laboratory that just happens to have all then necessary medications and equipment on hand. There are instances where characters change identity, location and body configuration without good explanation. There is an exorcism along the way. And a great deal about church dogma.If you can suspend critical thinking and disbelief, then this book is entertaining. I would compare it to a Dan Brown read where everything happens at a whirlwind pace and without any explanation, Very entertaining as long as you don't think too much about it.

    Story
    "The evil inherent in murder"

    A riveting thriller about a serial killer, as good as any the genre has to offer. It incorporates aspects of psychology, child abuse, religion, and most of all love - as the only force which can overcome evil.

    I believe that every murder has at its core an element of evil, and often its not only the perpetrator who is to blame. Sometimes its the victim, sometimes society - but there's always a complex interplay of forces and influences. This book highlights the complexity of factors involved, and, together with seamless narration, deserves 5 stars, in my opinion.

    "Disappointing, narrator difficult to listen to"

    This book has great start and an interesting premise, then dissolves into a predictable story line. Also, I hope I can avoid this narrator in the future. His voice gets very low in places, then gets loud suddenly, and in places where it does not make sense to do so. One of the worst performances on audible I have ever heard. I found myself constantly adjusting the volume.

    "spellbinding!"

    This book is fabulous...I couldn't wait to go drive so I could turn on my GPS and listen to more.Slightly different kind of Ted Dekker, but just as good, maybe better!

    "Unbelievable characters, strident narrator"

    The plot of this book is decent, but something just rings false about the characters. Their decisions and actions, such as an FBI agent being withholding information to allow a civilian to be the first to an active crime scene, are weird and poorly motivated, even within context. All of this is exacerbated by narration that is consistently strident. Every charter is responds to every situation with querulous intensity, and you end up simply getting tired of all the hissing and snapping. This was just not a pleasant book to listen to.

    Story
    "Dekker delivers another masterful thriller."
    What did you like best about this story?

    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.


    Have you listened to any of the narrator’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    This book was a challenge and the narrator did a masterful job of creating diverse and some truly creepy voices.
