He wasn’t always called Rudiger, once he was a normal, quiet boy. But when the sadistic Preacherman stole the last bit of Rudiger's childhood soul, Rudiger lost himself forever. As an adult, Rudiger has committed atrocities even he cannot explain and he yearns for the End of Days. God has told him he must crucify The One to bring about the Final Judgment, but Rudiger is left to his own to figure out who The One is. Thus sets off Rudiger's horrifying journey across continents in hopes bringing an end to the world, one crucifixion after another.
One man remembers what Rudiger is capable of. Jonas Osborne, a Senatorial Chief of Staff, saw first-hand what Rudiger is capable of during a terrifying battle in Somalia fifteen years earlier. Now Jonas himself could be a target on Rudiger's quest, and he enlists the help of beautiful psychic criminologist to understand where Rudiger will erect his next cross, and stop him before another innocent person is nailed to it. And only on the biggest national stage—a conference on Middle Eastern peace talk—will Jonas and Rudiger meet again for one last confrontation.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Final Crossing is a great thriller! I found myself reading quickly to find out what happened next and then re-reading for the richness of the details. This book will really entertain you, and the characters stay with you long after.
A great page-turning thriller that will keep you reading well into the night. Final Crossing is a solid suspense novel in the genre of Steve Berry and Dan Brown with a hint of Edgar Allan Poe that adds thoughtful, dark subtext. Very well-written as the author skillfully meshes perspectives from both the protagonist's and the antagonist's points of view. The two main characters are interwoven well with their respective backgrounds to give the reader ample understanding of their pasts from which each evolves throughout the story. The protagonist is realistically portrayed as his doubts, skepticism and emotions are easy to empathize with, a welcome characteristic that most suspense novels lack. Moreover, the author's unique take on a rare psychological condition provides an understandable motive that drives the serial killer whose intelligence appears to keep him one step ahead of everyone, leading to a surprising climax.
I've read the advanced copy and loved it! Getting my hands on the actual book this Thursday and cannot wait to read it again. Great suspense, some twists and turns that surprised me... looking forward to the next book already.
Thrilling, heart-pounding, gripping suspense. At times, even terrifying. A story you will be glued to from page one through to the final sentence. Absolutely not to be missed!
