Review - The Bride Collector by Ted Dekker
Title: The Bride Collector
Author: Ted Dekker
Publisher: Hachette Audio
Rating: You GOTTA Read
Reviewed by: Val
A virtuoso killer is carving a path of death across the west, intent on killing only the most beautiful women, all in the name of love. He has claimed six victims and slipped through the FBI's fingers, each time leaving behind a handwritten note and a bridal veil.
Special agent Brad Raines has hunted the Bride Collector from crime scene to crime scene, but each time he finds himself one step behind. Desperate for help, Raines turns to the Center for Wellness and Intelligence, a private home for gifted, mentally ill residents.
Raines is quickly drawn to a young woman named Paradise who struggles with psychosis. Together they enter the killer's deadly game and begin to close in. But like Paradise, the Bride Collector is supremely gifted and he has a distinct advantage: this is his game.
All I can say is WOW! The Bride Collector is a book that you will not put down and that I guarantee. Brad's character was fascinating to say the least. The complex relationship he finds himself in with Paradise is one you don't want to miss. The way the killer's mind works was truly bizarre. I enjoyed reading about the certain quirks the people at the Wellness Center have that really we all have to some extent. I don't want to give too much of this book away so I'm just going to say, BUY IT! This book is one of the best I have read yet.
I used to think that no one could take the place of James Patterson on my bookshelf but I must say that Ted Dekker has done just that. The Bride Collector has become a favorite and I will definitely be reading more books from this particular author. Ted Dekker has done an outstanding job with imagery, plot and everything in between. This is most certainly a book that you do not want to miss.
