Summary

Imagine answering your cell phone one day to a male voice that gives you three minutes to confess your sin. If you don't, the madman, Slater, will blow your car to smithereens. You barely manage to exit heavy traffic and ditch the car when, precisely three minutes later, your car blows sky high. The media and police descend on the scene; your world has just changed forever. So begins the nightmare that grows with progressively higher stakes. There's another phone call, another riddle. The cycle will not stop until the world discovers the secret of your sin, but you don't have a clue what that sin is. If not for Jennifer, the brilliant FBI agent working to corner Slater, you would indeed go mad.

Brilliant!!!

Dekker's plot was incredible!! Just as I thought I had it figured out, he took me down another path, but I never once felt manipulated. Having lived in Long Beach, it was nice to hear the names of streets I traveled all the time. The characters and story were well thought out. This book is proof positive that excellent fiction can be written without all the foul language so many other author's stoop to in their feeble attempts to have characters express themselves forcibly. No gratuitously graphic scenes to be squeamish over. Not only is the plot brillant, but the creativity in the use of language is unequaled. All of this added layers of depth to the story and proved that the reader can create their own visual image that is just as vivid as any one gratuitiously graphic paragraph could paint. I can't wait to listen to the rest of Dekker's books. I couldn't stop listening to this book. Lamont's voices were wonderful and consistent throughout also. I'm off to order another Dekker book!

Great story. Not so great narration.

The overall storyline was filled with intrigue, and the twists and turns that every good mystery novel should have. I just couldn't get past the narrator not giving each character their own personality. I also had a hard time with the music at the end/beginning of each chapter. I feel that it interrupted the natural flow of the book.
