Synopsis & Book Info:
By all accounts seminary student Kevin Parsins is leading a good, if not virtuous, life. But like all people, Kevin has his secrets. And someone wants them revealed.
While driving home from a day at graduate school, Kevin receives a call from a mysterious stranger who calls himself Slater. Slater demands Kevin confess his sin in the next three minutes or the vehicle he is manning will be blown to pieces.
Thus starts a harrowing chain of events. After narrowly escaping his exploding car, Kevin continues to receive phone calls from Slater, each with another riddle, another consequence, and another three minutes to confess his sin.
The problem is Kevin is unsure of what that sin might be. And Slater's cycle won't stop until he figures it out.

I thought I was going to love this book, being a Ted Dekker fan. I was wrong and the book let me down some.
It was a story that if you mashed Speed with Saw, this is what you'd get. You'd think that would be exciting, but it fell short for me.
The only part that I liked about the whole book was the super-surprising ending. Not what I thought would happen at all, and so far from the Speed-Saw mash-up in my mind.
Too bad, I like the writing style of Dekker, so I'll still read more of his books. Just not my favorite.
