A nightmare world begins for Kevin Parsons, a young seminarian, when he receives a cell phone call from an unknown man directing him to confess his sin to the world in three minutes or be blown to bits.Publishers Description
By all accounts seminary student Kevin Parsins is leading a good, if not virtuous, life. But like all people, Kevin has his secrets. And someone wants them revealed.
While driving home from a day at graduate school, Kevin receives a call from a mysterious stranger who calls himself Slater. Slater demands Kevin confess his sin in the next three minutes or the vehicle he is manning will be blown to pieces.
Thus starts a harrowing chain of events. After narrowly escaping his exploding car, Kevin continues to receive phone calls from Slater, each with another riddle, another consequence, and another three minutes to confess his sin.
The problem is Kevin is unsure of what that sin might be. And Slater's cycle won't stop until he figures it out.

|Amazing mind-twisting THRILLER Apr 14, 2010|
|I absolutely loved THR3E. Although it started off a little slow, I couldn't put it down once I got half-way through it. Some of it was predictable, but the ending had a really cool twist to it that kept me thinking. |
I loved how Ted Dekker created a character that is representative of all of us: The good, the bad, and the lost soul struggling in between the two!
Looking forward to reading my third Dekker novel!
Ps, I am a novice novelist, but I'm learning to write suspense along the styles of Dekker in my next few novels. He is a true inspiration.
|Ridiculous book Apr 13, 2010|
|Why is this popular??? I don't understand why people read it.|
The theme of good vs. evil played a part that would have been important, if it had been developed. Sadly, it wasn't.
The ending is so far from reality that it's not something that anyone can identify with or will experience. We can't use it to mentor friends or even to grow as people ourselves. It's simply so ridiculous that it wasn't worth writing about.
When it came to writing conversation (especially when the characters were looking back to their childhood), Dekker presented it in an awkward fashion. Maybe he hasn't spent time with ten- or eleven-year-olds lately, but they simply don't talk or think like that.
The book dragged on and on, focusing on details that were not only unnecessary but also dragged out the tale needlessly. The only, only, ONLY reason that I finished the book was that I kept waiting for something to happen. I was disappointed. Now, I'm angry that I wasted my evening reading such drivel.
|Incredibly obvious Mar 26, 2010|
|I only made it to the end of this book because I kept thinking that the whole thing was so obvious that there had to be a "gotcha." There isn't. You will have it diagnosed by chapter 2. Really disappointing.|
|Good Book Feb 20, 2010|
|My son loved this as a Christmas gift and it was a good price. Received in good condition and shipped in timely mannor.|
|twisted Feb 18, 2010|
|Ted Dekker has done it again. Nothing short of a miraculous, mind twisting, suspenseful thriller. As the story unfolds you find yourself wondering if this is the solution, or if that is the solution. You constantly bounce back and forth until the very end. A must for any Dekker fans out there.|
