Read in January, 2005

Another Peretti that'd on my shelf of "read" books. I must be more addicted to this guy than even I had realized! I don't think I noticed that until I signed up on this site.

Anyway, this is part of the same series as his book "Hangman's Curse". This book, however, does not have a misleading film adaption. That could be one of the reasons that I enjoyed it far more than its prequel.

The beloved family team is back to uncover yet another mystery involving a peculiar tragedy involving our nation's young people. What awaits them, however, is something that they and the reader definitely did not expect.

Again Peretti deals straight-up with an issue of our culture of the human nature and he makes no attempt to sugar-coat it. This time he addresses our apathy towards morals and truth in a way that hits hard.

Peretti does well with working up character sympathy in a lot of his books, but this one really stood out to me with all the horrors that the twins, Elisha (girl, can't remember her name's spelling) and Elijah endure. I could be that I was in high school at the time and therefore close to their age, but reason regardless Peretti did an amazing job.
