The world as we know it is unrecognisable.Almost 500 years have passed since civilization's brush with extinction. Perfect order reigns and humanity's gretaest threats have been silenced by the ruling totalitarian government. There is no disease. No passion. No hate. No war. There is only peace.Until one man discovers the truth hidden in a secret journal: the human heart has been stripped of all that makes it human and exists only in a kind of living death. But when Rom exposed himself to the vial of blood contained in the journal he was filled with uncontrollable emotions. Only Rom is now truly alive, and only he has the knowledge that can reawaken humanity. But the way is dangerous and the cost staggering ...the way is forbidden.
'Mammoth twists and head-pounding turns that will have readers and book clubs debating the roles of emotion and logic that drive human existence' -- Publishers Weekly 'Ted Dekker is a true master of thrillers, and this is his best.' -- Nelson DeMille on THE BRIDE COLLECTOR 'It doesn't just get under your skin. It crawls there, nests, and raises its head with a bitter tug, as if it's living within you.' -- Brad Meltzer on THE BRIDE COLLECTOR '...a tour-de-force of suspense that demands to be read in one sitting.' -- James Rollins on THE BRIDE COLLECTOR 'Dekker is adept at unraveling stories of good and evil at a nail-biting pace...' -- Library Journal Review on THE BONE MAN'S DAUGHTERS 'There's lots of good Christian fiction around but it's virtually impossible to get non-Christians to read it because it's overtly Christian. This book isn't. The story is gripping. It weaves together the abduction of two young children, the unfolding drama of 'Eve' a serial killer who leaves no clues as he kills a young woman every month, and the tensions between Clark, his ex-wife and an attractive female detective. Be prepared for a terrifying climax.' -- Christian Marketplace on ADAM
