After a bit of a shaky start, the story got into its stride and took off, making me hope that it would be a solid thriller. However, as the plot raced along, the story took an unexpected turn, and never felt quite as solid after that. In the end, it was a decent thriller with an adequately presented message, but probably not worth seeking out unless you’re a hardcore thriller or Dekker fan. I noticed more typos than I expected in a professional novel.
There is one swear word and two ambiguously used words that could be taken as swearing. Such language was so random that it felt awkward, and would have been better left out. There are a few non-explicit sexual references that, while not inappropriate, might go behind what most people would expect in Christian fiction. Violence is pervasive but rarely graphic. The dark tone and supernatural occurrences might disturb some readers.
