Review: Three by Ted Dekker
Kevin Parson is driving his car late one summer day when, suddenly, his cell phone rings. A man who identifies himself as Slater speaks in a breathy voice: You have exactly three minutes to confess your sin to the world. Refuse, and the car you're driving will blow sky high.
Kevin panics. Who would make such a call? What sin? Kevin ditches the car. Precisely three minutes later, a massive explosion sets his world on a collision course with madness.
I own a few Ted Dekker books, but this is the first one that I've read. It certainly won't be the last. I really liked it!
If you want a great thriller suspense type book, this is definitely one you need. The ending was very interesting and surprising. It made me want to reread the book and see if I could poke holes in the story. Very clever!
His writing style reminded me of Tami Hoag. I think if you're a fan of her you would like his books as well. It seemed like the same level of suspense and violence...maybe a little less than Hoag. Just a good solid thriller mystery that keeps you hanging until the very end.
Thanks to Hachette for sending me a copy of this book to review.
