Publisher's Summary

It takes an obsessive mind to know one. And Daniel Clark knows the elusive killer he's been stalking.

He's devoted every waking minute as a profiler to find the serial killer known only as Eve. He's pored over the crime scenes of 16 young women who died mysterious deaths, all in underground basements or caverns. He's delved into the killer's head and puzzled over the twisted religious overtones of the killings.

What Daniel can't possibly know is that he will be Eve's next victim. He will be the killer's first Adam. After 16 hopeless months, the case takes a drastic turn on a very dark night when Daniel is shot and left for dead.

Resuscitated after 20 minutes of clinical death, Daniel finds himself haunted by the experience. He knows he's seen the killer's face, but the trauma of dying has obscured the memory and left him with crushing panic attacks. Nothing - not even desperate, dangerous attempts to reexperience his own death - seems to bring him closer to finding the killer.

Then Eve strikes again, much closer to home. And Daniel's obsession explodes into a battle for his life...his sanity...his very soul.

Enter a world of death and near death that blurs the lines between fiction and reality in a way that will leave you stunned.

Not For The Genuine Christian...Beware

Although this book was written under the Christian genre, it isn’t a Christian book. It is a secular, horror story under the guise of a Christian book, that is all. It uses unclean language per the course for any Dekker book. The prose leads away from Christ instead of towards Christ.

Started out good

I thought this was going to be a good serial killer. It started out good and then turned stupid.

Expected more but still good.

Good beginning. Great middle. Lackluster ending. I actually thought that the Man of Sorrow was a glitch for the majority of book.

Twist and turns

This book is a fantastic and exciting read. The amount of detail and the way Ted Dekker brings each character to life in their own right is fantastic. Definitely a great read, couldn’t put it down!

Great book!

I love how the author incorporates the “monthly installments” of this story, into the story. One of the most fascinating narratives I have enjoyed in a hot minute. Coming over to his books from Frank Peretti, and am pleasantly surprised 😊

Mr Dekkar you never disappoint!

Excellent read. The narrator did an awesome job though sometimes his voice was so quiet I could barely hear. But it added to the suspense. Now to try and sleep!
