Review & Giveaway: The Bride Collector by Ted Dekker Audio Book

After four young women are found dead with the same M.O., the FBI agent on the case, Brad, knows that is facing one of the most difficult cases in his whole career. Brad wants the case to be solved and he wants it solved now. When he reaches his limit, he decides to visit the patients of Center for Wellness and Intelligence.

There he makes a connection with a woman named Paradise who has seen her share of grizzly monster that can sometimes take humanity out of humans. Befriending this woman shows Brad that sometimes what is considered 'crazy' is a sign of overwhelming intelligence in some.

When a friend of Brad's is murdered, he asks Paradise for help. Can they catch the killer before another victim turns up?

I don't usually talk in 'text' but I have to say OMG! I cannot believe how brilliant this book is! Ted paints a beautiful picture of friendship in the midst of brutality. Ted has moved into my top ten authors of all time.
