Each chapter builds the suspense and you never see the twists and turns that come. I didn't see the end coming as it did and quite honestly I'm still not sure how I feel about it. It's good. It fits the life of the story and saying that, I think when my emotions over the book come to a rest I'll completely accept the ending.
The story is told from the heroine's point of view. I use the word heroine loosely because she is a very unlikely hero. She's flawed and at times annoying in her weakness. But in that weakness is a realist strength I think many of us can relate to. She tells her story and then in the next chapter the story of the hero, Priest Danny Hansen's story is told. This goes on until their paths cross and as they say the plot thickens! I don't want to give too much away. This book is great. I really enjoy Dekker's style. It has some violence and at times some may think a little to graphic in that area but I found it appropriate. You quickly build a relationship with these two unlikely heroes and find yourself cheering them on in their vigilantly style justice. You could dig into the pages and find all sorts of allegoric meaning but for me this was simply an entertaining, thrill a minute book. There aren't too many places in this book that you can rest without a twist or shock coming at you. I loved it and will probably reread it. It was that good.
Here's a run down: Ex-Bosnian Danny Hansen, now Father Hansen is a priest who dispenses his own brand of justice to right the wrongs done to woman and children. Renee Gilmore is an ex-heroin addict who was rescued only to lose the man that saved her to mysterious circumstances. Their paths cross while after the same evil man. Nothing seems to go as planned. What happens next you won't see coming. I recommend this book highly. I've read other Dekker books (mostly the fantasy ones) and enjoyed them but this was the best I've read of him. I'll be looking into some of his other thrillers. He has an excellent command of language and emotes emotions through pages of the book. You don't feel that you are reading words but feeling the events take place. I look for this book to quickly become a best seller like many of his other books. He's a got a gift for finding not only the right words but also an imagination that keeps you riveted. ...Continua Nascondi
