If you love a good mystery—or a mystery about lovers—you’ll adore this all-new collection of fourteen seductively sinister tales.

Carolyn Hart offers a homespun tale of the WWII home front, as a small-town family squabble breaks wide open over a theft, and the suspect’s sweetheart is the only one who believes him.

Gar Anthony Haywood exposes a wealthy widow who thinks life after (her husband’s) death is simply heavenly, only to discover that when you marry for money, there’s hell to pay.

Nancy Pickard tells a tale of two lovers at the end of their relationship who warily witness a lonely woman trying to tie things up—before her own untimely end.

Peter Robinson probes a dying man’s memories of the Paris riots of 1968, when his obsession with a woman led him to the brink of madness—and into the heart of murder.

Also featuring stories from Dorothy Cannell, Eve Sandstrom, M. D. Lake, Ed Gorman, Jean Hager, Margaret Maron, Robert J. Randisi and Christine Matthews, Susan Dunlap, Kathy Hogan Trocheck, and Marilyn Wallace.

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ellie Benson | 2/20/2014

    " Some truly heart wrenching stories, and how love can pull you from the depths. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Amy | 2/3/2014

    " gordon read this book and wanted me to read a chapter. good stuff...probably will read the rest later. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Billy Collins | 2/2/2014

    " You don't have to agree with a certain theology to find meaning and truth in a modern theological text. The book's approach to theology helps readers of younger generations sift through theological methods as they apply to life situations. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Wade Bearden | 1/31/2014

    " This book is beneficial because it applies Jesus' work on the cross to specific life circumstances. It is very practical. Driscoll writes letters to a number of people in need of Jesus' redemption. The big idea is that Jesus' death and resurrection isn't just for a group of Jews 2,000 years ago, but also for us today. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jared | 1/23/2014

    " This is by far Driscoll's best book to date. Although long-winded at times (much like his preaching), the content is rich. I appreciated how he showed that theology and practical pastoral applications can converge. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Bryan McWhite | 1/21/2014

    " This may be the best explanation of Christ's work of atonement on the Cross that I have yet read, including John Stott's classic, "The Cross of Christ." It is CERTAINLY the most easily applicable and practically useful work on the Cross that I've ever read. Most readers will find this to be an accessible work that will bring healing to wounds and will pitch crucially important theology of the Cross at an understandable level. Pastors will find this to be a GOLD MINE of pastoral theology and practical wisdom for counseling broken people that is deeply rooted in the Cross. I plan to ask our community small groups to work carefully and deliberately through this book, and I have no doubt that I will be a better pastor because of reading it. It's likely that is will become a once-a-year book for me. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mary | 1/21/2014

    " Just as in his sermons Mark tells it straight. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Simon | 1/21/2014

    " This is life changing stuff. It's a great format, too. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Eric Durso | 1/16/2014

    " Great format. Each chapter is written like Driscoll is writing a personal letter to a certain kind of person who is involved in some kind of sin. Though the theology is good, it's gross and vulgar at times (unsurprisingly). I'd be careful about recommending it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lawrence | 1/7/2014

    " "Heavy theology, heavy life situations and hope. The best explanation of the facets of the atonement with practical hard hitting applications." "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dan | 12/11/2013

    " Tough read....some really heart-wrenching letters between a pastor and his congregants. In the letters, Driscoll points the congregant to how the saving work of Christ can be applied to their specific situation. This is what Pastoring is all about...solid stuff. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Job Dalomba | 12/9/2013

    " Driscoll's best book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Aldo | 11/29/2013

    " It took me some time to read through it. The stories in it are sometimes shocking but true and I was just astoinded by how great God's love is for this world. The stories are of people who stuffed up in life and who can find and have found the hope in Jesus that they desperately needed. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Matt | 11/28/2013

    " I loved this book. Because he teaches deep Gospel doctrine in the context of different sins in the lives of people it seems to stick. For example, I don't think I will get expiation mixed up with propitiation as a result of reading this because I am connecting those doctrines to a story now. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tyler | 11/28/2013

    " I would consider this a MUST read for anyone who takes Jesus seriously and is living for his glory. Nuff said. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 nate | 11/11/2013

    " Driscoll's most weighty and practical book, Death By Love responds to real life situations and people with orthodox Christian theology in letter form. It's well written, both in it's depth and it's warmth. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 John | 10/17/2013

    " Awsome Book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dabeyta | 9/16/2013

    " So far, it brings to life the significance of Jesus in everyday struggles and problems. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Eltigre Lee | 9/13/2013

    " Driscoll's Joshua tree "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dave | 3/13/2013

    " Interesting format where the author tells a story profiling a particular person and that person's situation, then writes a letter to that person with some perspectives from his Christian worldview. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Wendy C | 9/3/2012

    " At first I thought he was really harsh in the way he addressed some of his counselees, but the doctrine is right on... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tom | 4/30/2012

    " Not as intense as I thought it would be... good real life examples are used... but it's more informative on what the person is doing wrong and how to not make those mistakes by clinging to Christ... it's a good read "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Katy Zmuda | 4/1/2012

    " "I hate my brother" was, to me, the best. "My Daddy is a Paster" was a little harder to follow. I know I'm going to have to buy this book for myself now :) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Melissa | 6/21/2011

    " I read this book in less than a week. I don't even read great fiction that fast! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 John | 5/17/2011

    " Very intense stories, but very helpful in understanding how Jesus' work saves sinners. I am thankful to have read it and recommend it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jay Risner | 3/27/2011

    " Very good. Creatively done. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Barnabas Piper | 11/24/2010

    " I think this is Driscoll's best book. It combines pastoral care and empathy for serious pain with rich theology of the atonement. It is a unique way to write a book that tells of Jesus work by telling of it's intersection with people's sin, whether they are victims or perpetrators. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Chris | 9/3/2010

    " Every where she goes there is a murder...hmmmm

    I enjoyed this one. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 bookczuk | 3/28/2009

    " I got into this author because, though she is not local, she writes about a fictional island off the coast near Charleston...or Chastain, in her books.....I wish we had a bookstore like Annie's though!
