Publisher Comments:

The last thing Renee Gilmore remembers is being rescued by a pair of unknown arms after her drug-dealer boyfriend attempts to murder her. She wakes up in a beautiful glass house surrounded by doctors and the man that saved her life, Lamont Myers. Lamont offers her protection, if she abides by his rules. Among these; she must not leave the house, making her the bird in his gilded cage.

Danny Hansen is a Bosnian immigrant who came to America to escape the bloodshed of his country and the memories of his own involvement. Danny is a priest who lives by a strict moral code, one which values the loving of others above all else. It is those that pretend to abide by religious and legal law but intentionally harm others that insence Danny. And he believes it is duty to show them the error of their ways. Those few that admit and renounce their behavior are forgiven and set free, but never without a severe reminder of their wrongdoings. Those that refuse to admit to their behavior are killed.

A year after Renee is rescued by Lamont he is murdered and she vows to seek revenge. At the same time, Danny has continued to carve a swath of judgement and punishment.

In their individual pursuits, Danny and Renee's paths become entangled and before long it is clear that neither of them may make it out of this hunt alive.

Synopsis:

Two abandoned souls are on the hunt for one powerful man. Soon, their paths will cross and lead to one twisted fate.


Danny Hansen is a Bosnian immigrant who came to America with hopes of escaping haunted memories of a tragic war that took his mother's life. Now he's a priest who lives by a law of love and compassion. It is powerful men and hypocrites who abide by legal law but eschew the law of love that most incense Danny. As an avenging angel, he believes it is his duty to show them the error of their ways, at any cost.


Renee Gilmore is the frail and helpless victim of one such powerful man. Having escaped his clutches, she now lives only to satisfy justice by destroying him, regardless of whom she must become in that pursuit.


But when Danny and Renee's paths become inexorably entangled things go very, very badly and neither of them may make it out of this hunt alive.


Judge not, or you too will be judged.

After finishing "The Priest's Graveyard", I found myself stunned with both its darkness AND its light. It is the story of two lost souls, a priest with a violent past and a heroin addicted woman, and their individual searches for justice. There are moments of deep, penetrating insight into the human psyche; the author exposes, in a very cunning way, those pieces of us that none want exposed, pieces that we shove down deep, hoping that no one will ever find them.

You should really read this book when you have a decent amount of time on your hands so you can give it the appreciation it deserves and devour it in one or two sittings. The second you pick it up, you won't want to put it down. Humor mixed with wide eyed, edge of your seat action and situations that make your heart pound is what you'll find in Ted Dekker's latest novel. Without giving anything away, The Priest's Graveyard causes you to examine your own beliefs of right and wrong and judgement. Do you feel superior to others? Or do you only feel superior to those who inflict pain on others? Questions like these will wander through your mind as you embark on this wild ride with Renee Gilmore and Danny Hanson. It will leave you stunned and racing to the first chapter so you can read it again.
