The Priests Graveyard is the newest story from New York Times bestselling author, Ted Dekker. It is heartwarming and heartbreaking. It will make you laugh and it will make you cry. It will keep you up at night, turning pages, eager to find out what happens next. There are surprises and twists and this story is definitely not predictable. The core of this story comes down to love, and what love is. A central theme is also that of judgment judge not, lest you too be judged. Renee Gilmore, a heroin addict strung out on the streets, finds her world being turned around when she is rescued by Lamont Myers. Lamont keeps her in a glass house as his wife, and she is happy until her world is shattered one day. Intent on justice, Renee begins a dangerous hunt. Danny Hansen is a Catholic priest who witnessed a great deal of trauma when he was a young man living in Bosnia. He moved to America, hoping to begin a new life. What he found was that the world was in need of a judge one man who could find the people in power who used the law for their own gain and take their fate into his hands. Danny has become that judge. When Renee and Dannys paths cross, they embark on a dangerous endeavor that threatens both their lives. Neither of them will escape unscathed. The mood of this story is different than Dekkers other novels. This book was advertised as being about a vigilante priest, so one would assume this book would be as dark as BoneMans Daughters, Adam, or The Bride Collector. However, I felt this story was more centered around Renee, a fragile young woman full of naivete and innocence. Because of this, the story was lighter, heartwarming, and at times humourous. Dont think that Dekker is going soft, though there was enough thriller and adrenaline to keep me up until 3:30 in the morning to finish the book. Dannys journey is more ragged and raw, giving the classic edge to the story that Dekker does so masterfully. Something else Dekker has an incredible talent for is presenting his characters emotions and feelings in a way that feels real. I could identify with Dannys struggle and Renees pain because it was believable. Dekker gives so much personality and dimension to these characters they could walk off the page! This story is a tale of rebirth, love, and judgment. It is raw and thrilling, while taking your emotions on a roller coaster ride full of ups and downs. From the first page, it is compelling and will keep you turning pages until you reach the last word on the final page. You might shed a few tears before the story is over. This is definitely one of Dekkers finest works. If youre already a Dekker fan, this is a must-have for your collection. If youre new to Dekker, this is a great book to start your collection with because once you read this one, youll want to read more.

I had already read this book, but purchased the audio version for the car. This is Stephen King-classic (great of course!), but shorter than some of his other writings. The narrator does a good job expressing the main character, who is a young girl. I would recommend this book whether in audio or written form to anyone who loves suspense and especially Stephen King!

This is another classic written by Dean Koontz he is a great writer and always has plenty of surprises in his books to keep you interested. He has become one of my favorite writers. I just hope he keeps coming out with new books and Overstock. Com has the best prices on books.
