When Danny Hansen was fifteen years old, Serbians broke into his family home in Croatia; they killed his mother, and raped before killing his younger sisters. He knew this was a religious war between the Bosnian Orthodox Christians and the Catholic Croats with Muslims in the mix. After killing the murderers of his family, Danny joined a militia seeking justice, but found no solace from the nightmare of what happened to his loved ones.

When he immigrated to America, he became a priest, but though he abides by the law of love and compassion for fellow mankind, he loathes the influential hypocrites who use the laws of man and God to fuel their avarice and perversions. Danny is an avenging killer targeting pedophiles, murderers and cold blooded sinners. His latest target is vicious Jonathan Bourque; also wanting this vile man dead is Renee Gilmore, a former hooker and drug addict. Danny meets Renee and takes her into his confidence while plotting how to kill the beast; unaware that what they wish whether it comes true or not will come back to haunt them.

The Priest's Graveyard is a character driven tense thriller starring two people who have given up on societal justice as each has been victims with no recourse in society except kill the enemy; yet in spite of their homicidal tendencies Ted Dekker enables readers to feel compassion for the pair. This non-stop action tale never slows down even with twists and turns that have the audience wondering what next will happen as Mr. Dekker pulls the rug out from his fans by switching direction several times in this exciting thriller.

The story (a vigilante priest and drug addict accomplice) as described in the synopsis seemed as if it would be a great story. But it is destroyed by the constant inner turmoil of the characters. I found my self skipping through pages to eliminate the "whoa is me" portions of the book which totally broke the flow of the story of vengance and vigilante justice. Then the "KUMBAYA" ending killed me I'm sorry but I have no idea how some one can give this 3 or 4 stars poorly done.

    Great....until the end

    Typical for a Dekker novel and full of twists and surprises. Suspense level was a little low but the plot kept me interested. I read it in two days, so I guess it has "page-turner" qualities. I wasn't happy with how he chose to wrap up the book, but I'll let you be the judge of that.

    Not what I expected

    I have read Dekker's other stand alone fiction. I'm not sure what I was expecting, but after Boneman's Daughters this wasn't it. The summary was a little vague so I gave it a try. It's an okay read but not if you're expecting any type of horror element. The underlying message however was very poignant.

    A very emotionally dark tale more suited for fans of this genre.

    A very emotionally dark tale more suited for fans of this genre. Not really my cup of tea.

    Digging My Grave

    I thought this was a silly, preposterous story. Two supposed vigilantes come together, fall in love, and kill together. The author's attempt to put us into their minds just didn't work. They should have shot each other on page one.
