It's Los Angeles in the early 70s, and Friedman is living the groovy southern California life of a real-estate wheeler dealer. He's making money hand-over-fist and has long given up hope of finding the family he's lost in worn-torn Poland.But when a deceased woman's papers reveal that she possessed a priceless religious relic, and that she may have been his mother, Stephen becomes hungry for answers. A hunger that may kill him.

Wonderful except ...

... the last 2 minutes in the epilogue where the author expounds on Christian philosophy. It amounts to stating the metaphor of the book - obsession - as it relates to Christ. It added nothing to the story.

Otherwise, this was an excellent story that kept me riveted with its character development and deep understanding of human good and evil, not to mention the plot. Well worth the listen!

Taut thriller

Very unrelentingly high-strung thriller, I liked it a lot. Makes an interesting point about obsession, which seems like a bad thing, until you finish this. Interesting points on faith and evil. Consistently pulls back from magical/spooky stuff (though the evil is scary haunting). Reader was good, easy to understand (but, obviously not from LA, or he'd know how to pronounce "Brea"). Recommend if you like contrast between black & white, and can stand a constant sense of impending disaster and hopeless situations. If you haven't read the Red/Black/White triolgy of Ted Dekker's, you should. This is not quite that level, but it's pretty darn good.
