Enter a world where nothing is what it seems. Where your closest friend could be your greatest enemy.
Kevin Parson is driving his car late one summer day when, suddenly, his cell phone rings. A man who identifies himself as Slater speaks in a breathy voice: You have exactly three minutes to confess your sin to the world. Refuse, and the car you're driving will blow sky high.
Kevin panics. Who would make such a call? What sin? Kevin ditches the car. Precisely three minutes later, a massive explosion sets his world on a collision course with madness.
From the #1 best-selling fiction author comes a powerful story of good, evil, and all that lies between.

When it seemed as though you understood who were the major players, it appeared as though a "red herring" was thrown in, only to be discarded. Rather than being challenging and interesting, I became frustrated with the story line. Its not until the very end that you see the picture clearly, but then there's still a thread left dangling from another case. Not a satisfying conclusion to the book.

It leaves you hanging, wondering, guessing...A true model of near perfection in that special book! Dekker has carefully planned and plotted perfectly! An additional "thumbs up" on the audio version!!!

The first half of the book is good and suspenseful but the second half falls apart. I was so disappointed in the ending. I probably wouldn't recommend this book to anyone but the rest of Ted Dekker's books are excellent. If you are in need of a book to read from him I would recommend "Skin."
Jennifer @ Quiverfullfamily.com4 Stars Out Of 5Surprising ConclusionDecember 2, 2010Jennifer @ Quiverfullfamily.comQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4THR3E is an unusual book, to say the least. While it begins like many movie-style plot lines - man gets a phone call, do something or something will blow up - nothing is quite as it seems in this mysterious story that explores the connections between good and evil in the life of each fallen human being. I see that the book actually has been made into a film (no wonder I kept imagining it as a movie!), but I haven't seen it myself.
Originally released in 2003, the mass-market paperback is now hitting shelves in bookstores. This is a â€˜clean' mystery/suspense read; there isn't any cursing or explicit sensuality, though there is violence, darkness, and a disturbing history of a warped childhood. Still, it isn't explicit or TOO scary in my opinion.
There are some faith-based themes here obviously, with the struggle between good and evil being the obvious one. There are also explorations of adoption with God as a father, personal vs. abstract faith, and others. However, this isn't mainly an exploration of personal faith, and when Dekker does attempt to pull that into focus momentarily it quickly slips into the background and doesn't weave through the rest of the novel.
Due to the surprising plot twists it's difficult to go deeply into the plot of THR3E without revealing spoilers, but it certainly is a mind-bending read that will have you wanting to go back and read it through again once you're finished. I will say though, that the focus on action and suspense does leave a little something to be desired in the realm of character development. I never truly saw Kevin's genius (our threatened hero) though it was repeatedly referred to, nor did I find Jennifer's (the lead FBI agent) closing responses believable.
THR3E will definitely have you looking at the world through a different set of lenses for days to come after you finish reading it.
