The Priest's Graveyard by Ted Dekker

5 Critic Reviews

Although the story’s right-angle plot twist is jolting, it doesn’t feel forced or unbelievable, and the book’s atmosphere is appropriately dark and unsettling, kind of like the feeling you get from the Saw movies (although this book isn’t nearly as graphic or twisted as those). A daring and completely riveting thriller.

Synopsis

Two abandoned souls are on the hunt for one powerful man. Soon, their paths will cross and lead to one twisted fate.

Danny Hansen is a Bosnian immigrant who came to America with hopes of escaping haunted memories of a tragic war that took his other's life. Now he's a priest incensed by the powerful among us who manipulate the law for their own gain, uncaring of thes hattered lives they leave behind. It is his duty to show them the error of their ways, even if he must put them in the grave.

Renee Gilmore is the frail and helpless victim of one such powerful man. Having escaped his clutches, she now lives only to satisfy justice by destroying him, regardless of whom she must become in that pursuit.

But when Danny and Renee's paths become inexorably entangled things go very, very badly and neither of them may make it out of this hunt alive.

Having been a Dekker fan for years, I believe that The Priest’s Graveyard is one of his best, if not the best book he’s written.

This isn’t a novel which explores religious themes in a great degree of depth. The questions asked, primarily if violence in the name of justice is ever acceptable, seem fairly tame.
