THR3E by Ted Dekker

Kevin Parsons is being tormented by a mad man who leaves riddles as clues and bombs as consequences for failure. The attacks seem to be focused on something from Parson's past and he will have to rely on his best friend Samantha to help him unravel the mystery. Sensing this could be connected to an earlier case, FBI agent Jennifer Peters steps in to help reveal the stalker.

THR3E grips you from the very start and races ahead of you leaving you breathless as you try to match wits with the author and the characters. Each time you think you have the mystery solved, Mr. Dekker whips you around another corner filled with surprise and suspense.

This book kept me riveted and turning the pages faster than normal. The tension and suspense continued to build with nice plateaus to catch my breath while I evaluated the recent clues. The characters were wonderful, very strong and intelligent. The writing was nicely done. I enjoyed the changed style and pov when the author permitted the reader inside the thoughts of the antagonist. Very chilling. There were no cheap tricks or convenient story-telling theatrics.

Hands down, this is the best book I have read in a very long time.
