ABOUT THE BOOK -
Art Somers is a detective in close-knit Murrell's Inlet, S.C., a small-town, coastal community with deeply held spiritual and supernatural belief systems. A serial killer has shattered his peaceful existence by abducting multiple twelve-year-old boys within his county. Young thugs, backwater drug dealers and the occasional murderer are the most Art’s had to deal with, but now he must apprehend a predator who FBI profilers can’t find.
He discovers he has a tie by blood to the case and uncovers evidence that calls into question his long held spiritual and supernatural beliefs. Abraham, the father of faith, had to choose to either sacrifice his son or disobey a direct order from God. Art must now make a choice - sacrifice his soul to save his son.

MY THOUGHTS -
Wow, this book got really mixed reviews so far. But I loved it! I just thought it was a fun, entertaining, and exciting read. I liked the characters, Art and Angela were a good mix and they were believable enough for me.
I got to a certain point in the story and just wanted to keep reading to find out what was going to happen. It was a page turner that's for sure. I loved the supernatural parts of the story. This does have a strong evil element to it. I loved how the author tied it to the Bible - very interesting. I am a Christian and I liked it - I was not put off by it. But then again - I was reading it as a "Fantasy". I think some people get caught up in "it didn't feel real to me" or "that would have never happened in real life" well duh! This wasn't real - it was fiction/fantasy. Come on people... In Stephen King's Christine - would that happen in real life? There are just some stories you don't expect to be real and this was one for me. I liked it for what it was.
I enjoyed it, it was a fun book to read! I liked the author's writing style. It keep me interested every step of the way. I read the whole thing in almost one day. And, yes it did get a little crazy at the end, but a lot of Fantasy stories do. So that didn't even bother me.
If you enjoy a good, fun, supernatural Good vs. Evil type of book - give this one a try!
