Jill tracked down a copy of this book for me and brought it home. I'm really glad she did.
Adam by Ted Dekker is a rollicking thriller. FBI profiler Daniel Clark is on the track of a serial killer known only as "Eve." Eve is a careful individual who has killed fifteen women. Clark is desperate to stop him. He's obsessed with Eve, to the point that he drove away his wife, Heather.
Then it would appear that Daniel has caught a break: they think they've found Eve's hideout and they might be able to save his sixteenth victim. Only things go awry when Eve shoots and kills Daniel.
Luckily for Daniel, his new partner, Dr. Lori Ames, is able to bring him back. And now Daniel is even more determined to stop him, especially when he learns that Heather's life is on the line.
This was a rollicking good read and I pretty much devoured it over the past couple of days. Like many of Dekker's latest books, it seems to be a little light on spirituality, but that changes in the last quarter of the book.
I'll just add this one last thought: the book that Father Seymour suggests to Heather Clark toward the end of the book, Hostage to the Devil is indeed a real book. I've read it. It scared me half to death, so much so that I could only read four or five pages at a time and in the middle of the day. Fair warning.
