Well. This book wasn’t quite what I expected, but y’all, what a pleasant surprise it was! A gritty thriller and an intriguing look at spiritual warfare and the supernatural that I had a hard time putting down. Also, reading it alone at night made for some extra thrills, especially when my cat jumped at nothing – ha!
From New York Times bestselling author Craig Parshall comes a riveting story of supernatural suspense.
As a youth, Trevor Black unleashed spiritual forces he couldn’t comprehend. Years later, Trevor is a high-flying criminal defense lawyer in New York City, with a six-figure Aston Martin and a trophy wife. But in an extraordinary turn of events, he receives a burdensome gift: the ability to perceive the invisible. And the dark forces he now sees are all gunning for him.
When one of Trevor’s hometown friends is murdered, the MO is eerily similar to a shocking trail of murders that have already crossed the lawyer’s path. So Trevor must return home to find the killer. . . and face not only his own personal demons, but supernatural ones as well.
I haven’t read Frank Peretti’s This Present Darkness (I know…#fail, but it’s on the list), but I imagine it to be something like this reading experience. Using fiction, Parshall was able to bring to life the battles of good and evil that we don’t see. It was interesting and has left me thinking about the supernatural days later (in a good way of course!).
I enjoyed the mystery aspect of this story as well. It wasn’t what I thought it was going to be and I always like when I’m wrong in a mystery – it’s not as fun when you guess! If you like a good thriller – add this one to the list!
