It takes an obsessive mind to know one. And Daniel Clark knows the elusive killer he's been stalking. He's devoted every waking minute as a profiler to find the serial killer known only as Eve. He's pored over the crime scenes of sixteen young women who died mysterious deaths, all in underground basements or caverns. He's delved into the killer's head and puzzled over the twisted religious overtones of the killings. What Daniel can't possibly know is that he will be Eve's next victim. He will be the killer's first Adam. After sixteen hopeless months, the case takes a drastic turn on a very dark night when Daniel is shot and left for dead. Resuscitated after twenty minutes of clinical death, Daniel finds himself haunted by the experience. He knows he's seen the killer's face, but the trauma of dying has obscured the memory and left him with crushing panic attacks. Nothing--not even desperate, dangerous attempts to reexperience his own death--seems to bring him closer to finding the killer. Then Eve strikes again, much closer to home. And Daniel's obsession explodes into a battle for his life . . . his sanity . . . his very soul. Enter a world of death and near death that blurs the lines between fiction and reality in a way that will leave you stunned."The detail is stunning, pointing to meticulous research in FBI methods, forensic medicine, and psychological profiling. We have to keep telling ourselves that this is fiction. At the same time, we can't help thinking that not only could it happen, but that it will happen if we're not careful."David M. Kiely and Christina McKenna, authors of The Dark Sacrament

Ted Dekker is an amazing writer; this is the second book I’ve read by him. And I loved it. His writing is somewhat disturbing sometimes, which is why I sometimes put the book down for days, I just couldn’t go on. This won’t be a detailed review seeing I don’t really know how to do that.But What I l...

Good entertainment, but not high literature. Some threads were left hanging, and certain twist had the definite air of a true plot device. Also I was annoyed by Daniel's single-mindedness and the flirtation with death that that caused.I found the ending a bit rushed, which was a shame, as it had me ...

an investigator goes after a serial killer who turns out to be demon possessed. This was disturbing. There was very little of the power of Jesus involved. Dekker also seems to be trying to include Islam in his "appeal to those of faith" approach. I did not like this book or the underlying theology b...

Adam is Ted Dekker's best and most compelling work to date, and also the most disturbing. If it were to be compared to a movie, 'The Exorcist' would be the closest. I quote Dekker when he says,"This is one of the only books I've ever written, where, honestly, I was so disturbed by what I discovered ...
