This is the second book I have read of Dekker and it will be the last one. I have no idea why his books are sold at christian bookstores as there is no faith message. This book gets into some very questionable spirititual philosophies. Also, it was very unrealistic that a "normal" guy would fall in love with a woman with so many mental problems.
Another good book from Ted Dekker that I found hard to put down. He is good at creating psychotic characters, and the killer was definitely crazy. I really like his stories. I was disappointed that he didn't save one of the characters who interacted with the main character, Brad, just because he allowed the reader to come to know her. But, overall, it was a good read.
