I was so excited to tear open my package from Thomas Nelson... It didn't have Ted Dekker in it, but the next best thing... his latest book called "Adam".
This psychological thriller is one of his darkest, I think, delving into the psychology of what could happen when two children are stolen from their home to live in an alien world of abuse.
It is classic Dekker in the details and research. This time in the details of forensics and FBI hunts for serial killers. The most chilling part is too close to the end to reveal here. The vortex of this book will suck you in and won't let you go. It's the kind of book that you will think about long after you've read the last page.
I'm telling you this book is well worth the money and is exciting to the very end. You'll not want to turn the lights out! What are you doing still sitting there? Go get it and read it.
Ted is the son of missionaries John and Helen Dekker, whose incredible story of life among headhunters in Indonesia has been told in several books. Surrounded by the vivid colors of the jungle and a myriad of cultures, each steeped in their own interpretation of life and faith, Dekker received a first-class education on human nature and behavior.
This, he believes, is the foundation of his writing.After graduating from a multi-cultural high school, he took up permanent residence in the United States to study Religion and Philosophy. After earning his Bachelor's Degree, Dekker entered the corporate world in management for a large healthcare company in California. Dekker was quickly recognized as a talent in the field of marketing and was soon promoted to Director of Marketing. This experience gave him a background which enabled him to eventually form his own company and steadily climb the corporate ladder.
Since 1997, Dekker has written full-time. He states that each time he writes, he finds his understanding of life and love just a little clearer and his expression of that understanding a little more vivid. Dekker's body of work encompassing seven mysteries, three thrillers and ten fantasies includes Heaven's Wager, When Heaven Weeps, Thunder of Heaven, Blessed Child, A Man Called Blessed, Blink, Thr3e, The Circle Trilogy (Black, Red, White), and Obsessed, with two more...Renegade, and Chaos to be released later this year.
