After his parents' death in a fire and the cancellation of his engagement, Aiden Schaeffer, assistant pastor of Knox Presbyterian Church, has lost his faith in God. While wrestling with his doubts and his growing dissatisfaction with the religious community, he becomes the subject of a murder investigation. The victim: Aiden's ex-fiancée. The investigation moves on to more likely suspects, but Aiden begins his own search for the killer, a search that takes him deep into the world of the supernatural and embroils him in a battle for his soul. VERDICT Ryan's first novel skillfully blends theology, murder mystery, horror, and paranormal investigation through one man's struggle with his belief in God. Solid characterization and a grounding in his subject matter make this series opener a real attraction for fans of The Exorcist and the darker fiction of C.S. Lewis and Charles Williams.
