There is a short discussion guide available online for use with your book group. If your group likes a good suspense read with a godly message, this would be a terrific choice!The story of a divorced couple who find themselves on opposite sides of this thriller is a roller coaster ride that begins as you open the front cover. The perfect blend of suspense mingles with the ideal amount of doubt in Camilles mind as she attempts to reconcile the man that her husband, Jack, was with the person that he claims to have become. They are at odds because the latest victim is Jacks sister and the murderer seems to be a prisoner that Camille has freed. Jacks lawyer-turned-preacher character brilliantly draws Christianity into the storyline creating a strong undercurrent between the former husband and wife as Camille scrutinizes her ex for flaws in his seemingly genuine belief in Christ. Besides being a superbly written suspense novel, this book illuminates the ability for people to repent and change and enjoy restored fellowship with a gracious and loving God.
