This book was terrifying, gripping, haunting, a real page turner. It contains a classic duel of good and evil. Synopsis: Frank Pollard awakens in an alley sensing he is in great danger. However, not remembering anything except his name. He takes refuge in a motel and awakens with blood on his hands. Over the next few days he fears sleep because each time he wakes up he discovers strange objects in his hands or in his pockets. Bobby and Julie Dakota are a husband-and-wife detective team. They specialize in high-ticket corporate security investigations. However, they help Frank Pollard out of compassion and curiosity. But as the Dakotas begin to discover where Frank goes when he sleeps, they are drawn into ever-darkening realms where they encounter the figure stalking Frank. Thomas is Julie Dakota's Down's-syndrome brother. To him, death is the "Bad Place".

Synopsis: Henry Ward Beecher, golden-tongued pastor of Brooklyn's Plymouth Church, whose sermons made the multitudes gasp and swoon, was a celbrated public figure and peerless moral force...Suddenly, the nation is flabbergasted when Beecher is accused of seducing the wife of his protege. Beecher's sister was Harriet Beecher Stowe - who wrote "Uncle Tom's Cabin". I liked this book - it was shocking.
