Publisher's Summary

FBI Special agent Brad Raines is facing his toughest case yet. A Denver serial killer has killed four beautiful young women, leaving a bridal veil at each crime scene, and he's picking up his pace. Unable to crack the case, Raines appeals for help from a most unusual source: residents of the Center for Wellbeing and Intelligence, a private psychiatric institution for mentally ill individuals whose are extraordinarily gifted.

It's there that he meets Paradise, a young woman who witnessed her father murder her family and barely escaped his hand. Diagnosed with schizophrenia, Paradise may also have an extrasensory gift: the ability to experience the final moments of a person's life when she touches the dead body.

In a desperate attempt to find the killer, Raines enlists Paradise's help. In an effort to win her trust, he befriends this strange young woman and begins to see in her qualities that most 'sane people' sorely lack. Gradually, he starts to question whether sanity resides outside the hospital walls...or inside.

As the Bride Collector picks up the pace--and volume--of his gruesome crucifixions, the case becomes even more personal to Raines when his friend and colleague, a beautiful young forensic psychologist, becomes the Bride Collector's next target.

The FBI believes that the killer plans to murder seven women. Can Paradise help before it's too late?

    "Not for me!"

    I have read and listen to a few different Ted Dekker books and they are not my type. They start out good and plausible then spin out to fantasy land. They turn into a religious/higher being books. The books go from a believable book to a, you must believe in a higher power, blind faith book. I personally like realistic fiction books, not fantasy books. If it wasn't for the mentally-ill characters in The Bride Collector, I would not have been able to finish listening to this book. I don’t believe I will be reading or listening to any more of Ted Dekker’s work.

    "The Bride Collector"

    This book was so far-fetched with unbelievable characters that I can't believe I wasted my time listening to the entire book. I kept thinking it would get better &/or more believable. Don't waste your time or money on this book.

    "Terrible Book and Gruesome"

    I agree with Betty & Kerry. It is poorly written and poorly read. Don't waste you money unless you like gruesome scenes.

    "Worst Worst Book!"

    I agree with "Betty" 110% except I did finish it. I actually laughed during parts that were hard to believe. Do not waste your money on this book.
