Publisher's Summary

T. L. Hines' mesmerizing debut thriller, one of Library Journal's Top 25 Christian novels of 2006, tells the gripping tale of a troubled man who finds a reason for living while confronting the ghastly face of evil. Jude Allman has actually died and come back to life - three times. Haunted by paranoia and fearful that life has no purpose or meaning, Jude lurks behind locked doors. But when his heightened senses detect immanent death, Jude tries to rescue the captive prey of a fiendish pedophile.

Critic Reviews

"The story of Jude's existential crisis and his gradual redemption through the healing power of prayer, forgiveness, good works and the occasional jaw-dropping miracle is compelling." (Kirkus Discoveries)

I've long been a fan of horror/suspense stories, and the dark, creepy undertone of this story is very, very satisfying. Reminds me of an early Peter Straub.
The Christian theme to this novel is well done. No doctrine shoved-down-the-throat, but a gripping supernatural story, which seems eerily plausible. It will come across well to Christians and non-Christians alike.
Be warned: it's very close to a horror novel, or at least a very suspensful thriller. I LOVED it, but some scenes are fairly graphic, espcially the scenes involving the pedophile and the missing children.
The character development is as good as I've read in any novel, the dialog intelligent, and the narrator's voice suits the story well, and gives it a dark edginess.
This is the most suspensful and memorable audiobook I've listened to in over a year. I can't wait for more from this author.

This was just an incredible story. T.L. Hines is now up there in my top 3 with Dean Koontz, and H.P. Lovecraft. Cant wait for his next book.
