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.

Quotes & Awards

  • “It’s smart enough to realize that, for many, the scariest thing in life isn't a monster or something that bumps in the night. It's love. Love is terrifying. And powerful. And unstoppable. And if you don't already know that, you're about to see why. The Priest’s Graveyard will haunt you—long after you want it to.”

    Brad Meltzer, #1 New York Times bestselling author

  • “A thrill-a-minute ride, with heart-pounding action and a twist that you'll never see coming.”

    Tess Gerritsen, New York Times bestselling author

  • “Perfect entertainment. Beguiling, compelling, challenging, and riveting…fantastic gimmick-free storytelling. Don't pass this one up.”

    Steve Berry, New York Times bestselling author

  • “An amazing novel, utterly compelling, the story of an abandoned girl and a strange, vengeful priest whose paths eventually cross—with terrifying consequences. Intensely readable, well written, and completely original.”

    Douglas Preston, New York Times bestselling author

  • “Skilfully written, surprising, and impossible to put down…his best novel to date. This is an extremely well-thought-out novel, precisely plotted, and, like a good magic trick, deceptive and startling. A daring and completely riveting thriller.”

Listener Opinions

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

    " Would have been a five-star rating but the weak ending put me off a little bit. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Codi Jacobus | 1/17/2014

    " Great book! At first I was a little skeptical about the constant switching between first person and third person writing but I quickly got use to it. It was easier to keep track of the two sides of the story being told. By the end of the book I found myself rooting for the bad guy which normally doesn't happen, but it was for a good reason. Loved the Danny and Renee pairing, they were made for each other! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Linda Bloom | 1/6/2014

    " Dekker does it again...didn't see the twist till late in the story! Not as good as my favorite, "Three," but an enjoyable read nonetheless. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jonathon Rodzik | 9/7/2013

    " A decent read but not one of his better books that I have read. I enjoyed the twists and characters; but felt the story a little contrived. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Teresa | 8/30/2013

    " Thankfully this was much better than "Immanuel's Viens"or I would think twice about buying his next book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Eomicheli | 6/24/2013

    " This was an exciting story I had trouble putting down. Interesting premise...are all killers evil? I found it engaging enough to waver between 4 and 5. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Josh | 5/14/2013

    " Man has been tempted to judge the guilty since before history. This is the story or two people learning to love rather than judge "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Eric | 3/15/2013

    " I thought the start of the book was very good and then it all sort of tailed off and lost it's steam. It was an interesting twist that i sort of saw coming but the story as a whole just didn't grab me. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 mmk4 Koenen | 11/16/2012

    " I listened to this one. Two narrators...very good. A bit confused at then end. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Shannon | 8/8/2012

    " Not Really one of his best book but it was not bad either. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kateri | 7/19/2012

    " I didn't enjoy this book as much as the first Ted Dekker book I read, "The Bride Collector." I was surprised by the twist at the end, but I couldn't relate to the main characters. I didn't find them particularly believable. Overall, I was not impressed. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Amanda | 9/30/2011

    " This story is all about morals. The Priest Danny struggles with what he thinks that he has to do, and whether it is right or wrong. Can't wait for book 2 The Sanctuary. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Lynette | 5/21/2011

    " This was not even acceptable fare from Dekker. I have read a lot of his books, but he must have been pushed to finish something or needed a paycheck to have even put his name on this. Just my opinion!!!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ray | 5/20/2011

    " Classic Dekker - great read!! "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Dawna | 5/19/2011

    " I listened to a great deal of this book on CD. I kept waiting for it to get better and it didn't. This book didn't interest me enough to finish listening to it. I didn't care how it ended. Maybe it "reads" better. "

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