Reviewed by Cindy Loven

Terry Caffey, has truly lived a nightmare, no one should ever have to live. His family murdered, his house burned down, and himself left for dead, he thinks he is the only surviving member of his family.

To his delight, then horror, he discovers his daughter has survived, however she was involved with the murders. In fact the District Attorney, believes she is the master mind behind the plot to kill Terry, his wife and children.

How does a man face life alone, with his wife and son's brutally ripped from his life. How does a man face the truth that his sixteen year old daughter whom he has loved and raised, was part of the plan to kill them all? Only through the grace of God.

Terror by Night is a story of horror at the things that happen to the Caffey family. It is also a story of the grace of God, who touches and moves in Terry's life, bringing hope again to him. This book will have you sobbing for what is lost, and puzzling over the questions of why, how and what reason. A book of restored faith, redemptive power and God's love.

This book is most definitely a book to share with others. 260 pages $22.99 US 4 stars

This book was provided for review purposes only, no cash or payment was received for this review.

While the story is very inspirational about the author's trials after the murders of his wife and two sons by their daughter and her friends, it shouldn't be in the True Crime category. Very little time was spent on the actual events of the crime. Most of the book was about his relationship with God and ow he coped with his loss. As far as Inspiration I would give it 4 1/2 stars, but for its True Crime content it would rate only 1 star.

    Insprational!

    We all need to learn and feel forgiveness rather then let it eat away at us and destroy us. One man's journey from losing his family to finding hope and relief in the Lord. All things are possible. The story left a strong imprint in my heart and soul.

    Overcoming

    Shows the faith we need to have in God no matter what. God's there, even if we don't feel it. He's the best writer, he writes our life as a story.

    Amazing book

    Read this in 2 days. This book really makes you look at yourself and realize how blessed most of us really are. It also shows what complete faith in God can do, God is amazing and is always there even when we think he's not. It amazed me that through everything this man went through, he still had the faith he needed, and because of that God made himself known to him in more than one way.

    Very good book

    I really enjoyed this book. I read alot of true crime, it was great to read a book from a victims side, and how he and his faith were tested. It is the perfect price being free and all.

    Maurice England is "every man"

    I was totally impressed with the narrator's interpretation. He has a style that is human, real and unrehearsed. He made me "feel comfortable" and I trusted what he said. The emotion in his voice made the story come alive and, at several times, made me weep with the main character. I didn't hear "acting"--I heard authenticity.
