Waking Lazarus by T. L. Hine

Jude Allman became famous as the man who died and came back to life three times. Now he's a recluse, hiding from the world in the deep forests of Montana. But when children around him begin disappearing, his days of hiding are over. Only Jude has the key to stopping the abductions-hidden inside the mysteries of his own deaths. Now he must face the questions that have haunted him. What if his deaths aren't just accidental? What if there's a reason behind it all? What if he's been brought back just for this moment?

This did not read like a first novel. I was caught up in the story from the first page on. This was a book that I made the mistake of taking to read on vacation. We stayed in a condo in the Catskills Mountains. As Jude's story unfolds and the action starts to move into a cat and mouse game with the killer the last place you will want to be is in the mountains. T. L.'s novel will make you nervous to be alone anywhere but definitely read this with other people around. The book is part thriller and part the life story of Jude Allman. The author keeps you guessing as to who the killer(called the Hunter) is until the end. Hand this book to anyone who says that Christian fiction is boring and tame.

Highly recommended. One of the best books(Christian or secular) of the year.
