I received this book via NetGalley.

I started this book just yesterday evening and finished it an hour ago. From the very first paragraph I was hooked. This book has two stories kind of going on at the same time, which left me wondering when they will intersect and the book make sense as a whole.

Pamela is at home one day with her two girls, Faye and Rebecca, when a strange man starts banging on the door wanting to come in. He actually breaks into the house, inches from them, but Pam is able to escape out the back door to a neighbor’s house. Meanwhile, Jack, a newspaper reporter, has been given an order from his boss to write a story on a local pastor’s suspected suicide. The story with the missing pastor unfolds as the stalker continues to terrorize Pam and her family. Eventually the stories come together in a climax so moving I had to stop reading for a minute. The  underlying message of this novel was that every. single. one of us are guilty, deserving judgement, whether we are criminals or not, but SOMEONE chose to show us love and mercy on a cross…Christ. No matter how far we fall, what we do, he chose to make a way for us. I did not want to put this book down because it was so fascinating.
