This is an awesome book. I actually own 2 copies. I'm just giving one away. If you love suspense/thrillers this is for you.

This book is about a man's hatred that destoys his own son and causes others to suffer as well. It delves into the mind of someone totally obsessed with hatred. I used it as a discussion topic for why we should NEVER be tempted to hate because it will only destroy us!

I like what Ted Dekker is trying to do which is make us think but his preference for the graphic almost over the edge writing goes to the extreme. Maybe some people need that but I don't think ALL of us qualify for that catagory which in turn keeps us from reading some of his writings. People from the streets aren't the ones reading his books.

When Stephen learns of his real mother and her death he becomes involved in trying to discover more about her and it is leading him to the Stones of David.

The story takes place in the 1970's then goes back to 1944 during the Holocaust when his mother was in a concentration camp and he was born there. As the story unfolds it does not go into gory details about the Holocaust but about the two women's relationship with the 'boss' of the camp.
