It takes an obsessive mind to know one. And Daniel Clark knows the elusive killer he's been stalking.

He's devoted every waking minute as a profiler to find the serial killer known only as Eve. He's pored over the crime scenes of sixteen young women who died mysterious deaths, all in underground basements or caverns. He's delved into the killer's head and puzzled over the twisted religious overtones of the killings.

What Daniel can't possibly know is that he will be Eve's next victim. He will be the killer's first Adam. After sixteen hopeless months, the case takes a drastic turn on a very dark night when Daniel is shot and left for dead.

Resuscitated after twenty minutes of clinical death, Daniel finds himself haunted by the experience. He knows he's seen the killer's face, but the trauma of dying has obscured the memory and left him with crushing panic attacks. Nothing--not even desperate, dangerous attempts to reexperience his own death--seems to bring him closer to finding the killer.

Then Eve strikes again, much closer to home. And Daniel's obsession explodes into a battle for his life . . . his sanity . . . his very soul.

Enter a world of death and near death that blurs the lines between fiction and reality in a way that will leave you stunned.

"The detail is stunning, pointing to meticulous research in FBI methods, forensic medicine, and psychological profiling. We have to keep telling ourselves that this is fiction. At the same time, we can't help thinking that not only could it happen, but that it will happen if we're not careful."

David M. Kiely and Christina McKenna, authors of "The Dark Sacrament"

I am a huge fan of Ted Dekker and have read many of his books. Although I can say that this wasn't one of favorites, I think it was still super suspenseful. As a Christian, the demonic possessions disturbed me but gave me an insight of things that do not usually happen in today's world. The writing was well arranged, and the plot twists and action was superb. A thumbs up from me!

I don't feel this was his best book but it was very good, lots of action suspence and a very powerful ending 4 stars for sure

I finished reading this book and I felt like the author threw everything he could think of at the plot, hoping that something would stick. Really bad

This is my first time reading Dekker and I really liked this book BUT they really push the Christian agenda good vs evil at the end of the book. I am a Christian and I thought it was too much so I reduce my rating to 3 stars.
