Item Description...
Overview
A freak storm has spawned three tornadoes that are bearing down on the town of Summerville.

Yet under the cover of the storm looms a much more ominous threat: A vindictive killer known as Red who's left a string of victims in his wake and is now bent on exacting his final revenge on the unsuspecting town.

But there is an enigma surrounding Red that the FBI is unwilling to admit-closely guarded secrets of something gone terribly wrong beneath the skin of Summerville. Secrets that will destroy far more than one small town.

Wendy Davidson is caught in the middle. She's a recovering cult survivor who takes refuge in Summerville on her way to visit her estranged mother. And with her, four strangers, any of whom could be the next victim . . . or the killer.

So so...  Oct 14, 2008
This book was very good at making you turn pages quickly...

but it lacked a powerful punch at the end. :(

 
A mindblowing concept; well done, Ted  Sep 7, 2008
This book was an amazing breakthrough for Ted's career. Writing a book for the secular market was a smart move because it will cause readers that may be non-believers to want to read his other material that has more Christian-themed messages. In many interviews, Ted Dekker specifically said he was not writing this book to have obvious spiritual concepts but was targeting secular audiences with the simple message of getting past the skin of this world or the external appearance of a person to find out what's really underneath. Yes, the book contains some typos and may seem a bit rushed, but you have to understand what a prolific writer Ted is and the number of books he writes in the space of one year is unprecedented. Overall, it was an awesome, trippy ride. Get this book.
 
uggg...ridiculous  Jul 26, 2008
I'll keep this short and simple: This is the first (and probably last) Ted Dekker novel I've read. The book is horrible: the plot is ridiculous (and extremely implausible in the end), the characters are flat, and the narrative is amateurish...Anyone who gave this book 4 or 5 stars either didn't read the novel or will give 5 stars to a phone book.
 
Great Beach Book  Jul 26, 2008
While this isn't my favorite of Ted Dekker's books, it's definitely a fun read while sitting on the beach. The story grabs you immediately, and keeps you hooked throughout. I enjoyed trying to figure out where the story was going through all the twists and turns. Now that I've read more of his books, I also get a kick out where many of his books cross paths with each other. I think Ted Dekker is a brilliant and imaginative writer, and I appreciate his efforts in trying to get his readers to think about the underlying message of his stories. I also realize that many of his villians are exceptionally gross, but then, so is evil when it's exposed for what it is. This book is still a good read.
 
Juvenile thriller  Jun 23, 2008
I thoroughly disliked this book. The characters are one-dimensional and flat; the dialogue is excessively cliched, and the plot revolves around a sadistic serial killer and mind-altering drug experiments. The plot wouldn't have bothered me so much if the book was not marked as a "Christian" thriller. I can think of many ways that people can be introduced to the concepts of Christianity that do not involve reading (or writing) books this banal.
