    I read this book and the other two books in the trilogy "Deadline" and "Dominion" and didn't get bored for an instant. It's a Christian book that's well written and makes you think. Even if you don't agree with him you'll still want to read it to the last page just for the story itself. In my opinion you won't be disappointed, no matter what your background. It's a good mystery book in and of itself. I got this and the other two books for my 12 year old grandson. I had actually read them this summer and was so impressed I said "There's his Christmas gift!" :) Also I was very pleased with the prompt receipt and condition of the books especially since they're being given as a gift.

See what happens as this thriller unfolds with all the twists and turns you¿ll be amazed at the outcome. This book is absolutely amazing! It¿s Sam Spade and C.S. Lewis all rolled into one. Forget Christian fiction this book deserves to be on the best sellers list! It¿s as suspenseful as a John Grisham novel. The author Randy Alcorn who has written twenty five novels does an awesome job with this page turner. You¿ll laugh, you¿ll cry even get mad as you read ¿ you won¿t be able to put this one down! Actually this is the third novel in the line of mysteries Deadline and Dominion being the other two which have also received rave reviews. This reviewer loved the Sherlock Holmes quotes before each chapter and you¿ll see heaven come alive as Chandler¿s friends and family that have passed on discuss Ollie with the Carpenter, Jesus. You¿ll cry as Carly, Jake¿s daughter dies and meets Jesus and really see the other place as Palatine finds himself there after his murder. A must read for any Christian but great for the unsaved as the questions unfold from Chandler as he questions God¿s existence. Even the discussion questions in the back of the book make it great for a book group or reaching the unsaved. So as the saying goes taped on Ollie¿s refrigerator ¿Examine the evidence. Then follow wherever it leads.¿ Don¿t miss this suspense thriller as it is a must, great read and one of the best of 2007 novels - Christian or not.
