This Week's CFBA Tour--Adam, by Ted Dekker

About Adam:

He died once to stop the he's dying again to save his wife.

FBI behavioral psychologist Daniel Clark has become famous for his well-articulated arguments 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” is about to end abruptly with an unexpected death--his own.

Twenty minutes later Daniel is resuscitated, only to be haunted by the loss of memory of the events immediately preceding his death. Daniel becomes convinced that the only way to stop Eve is to recover those missing minutes during which he alone saw the killer’s face. And the only way to access them is to trigger his brain’s memory dump that occurs at the time of death by simulating his death again…and again.

So begins a carefully researched psychological thriller which delves deep into the haunting realities of near-death experiences, demon possession, and the human psyche.

I WANT this book! But I'm scared to death to read it. Did you read it, Brandilyn? *Grin* 'Cuz I feel quite sure NO ONE in the BHCC has read this book. NO ONE.

Yes, Lynette, I read it and enjoyed it. Is it too intense for BHCC members? I guess so, but it's hard for me to approach a book with that mindset. There are a lot of places in it that provide backstory for the killer, which are more psychological in nature. These are feature articles--actually a long feature article broken into parts. These provide "let-down" time for anyone who's easily frightened.

I say if you want to read it--go for it.

Hello Brandilyn, I just wanted to comment that Ted Dekker is one of my favorite authors. I am currently reading Showdown, and I am looking forward to getting to Adam in the near future. Of course, I have yet to read any of yours, but Eden told me they are good. Hope to see you in June.
