Amazon

Set in Pennsylvania in current time, this book could best be described as a Supernatural Christian thriller. The action begins on page one and never stops.
Readers will find this book hard to put down. The story is written in first person, so the reader has a ringside seat to protagonist James Cooper's emotions. Doubt, fear, skepticism, joy, guilt, confusion, relief and growth are among these emotions as James' faith is tested.

The story begins with James, his wife, Maria, and their four-year-old autistic daughter, moving to a rural home in the small community of Walker's Vale, Pennsylvania. Even before unpacking, the Cooper family begins to experience unusual events. A visit from a very peculiar minister brings more questions than comfort.

Nothing in their experience has prepared the Cooper family for the bizarre things that befall them. The Coopers have strong Christian faith, however, which provides the power they need. James chooses to keep some encounters to himself, which causes tension between him and Maria. He fears for his child's safety and worries about protecting his family. It becomes almost impossible to know who can be trusted and who cannot. The fast pace of the story leaves little time for guessing.

For entertainment, this book rates high in excitement and down to the wire suspense. Description is very explicit, making it possible for the reader to see and feel everything right along with James and his family. Those readers who are squeamish about demonic manifestations might find parts of the story a bit frightening, James learns the truth that "The devil is in the details", but finds that God is there, too. He also comes to believe Maria's favorite quote "God always has something better" and he finds it himself.

I recommend this book for adult and teenage readers who enjoy a fast paced supernatural thriller.
