New York Times best-selling author Ted Dekker unleashes his most riveting novel yet . . . an elusive serial killer whose victims die of unknown causes and the psychologist obsessed with catching him.

FBI behavioral psychologist Daniel Clark has been made famous by his arguments that religion is one of society's greatest antagonists. What Daniel doesn't know is that his obsessive pursuit of a serial killer known only as "Eve" will end in his own death at Eve's hand. Twenty minutes later Daniel is resuscitated, only to be haunted by those twenty missing minutes of life.

It soon becomes painfully clear that the only way to stop Eve is to recover those missing minutes by dying . . . again. What isn't nearly as clear is just how many times he will have to die to discover the truth, not only about Eve, but about himself. Daniel will have to face haunting realities about demon possession in the modern world - and reevaluate his prejudice against religion - to stop Eve.


"As always with a Ted Dekker thriller, the detail is stunning, pointing to meticulous research in a raft of areas: police and FBI methods, forensic medicine, psychological profiling - in short, all that accompanies a Federal hunt for a serial killer. But Dekker fully reveals his magic in the latter part of the book, when he subtly introduces his darker and more frightening theme. It's all too creepily convincing. We have to keep telling ourselves that this is fiction. At the same time, we can't help thinking that not only could it happen, but that it will happen if we're not careful."

- David M. Kiely and Christina McKenna, authors of The Dark Sacrament

"New York Times best-selling author Ted Dekker returns to his spiritual warfare roots with his newest spine-tingler, Adam. In a taut, hard-hitting story that boasts the best mix of noir crime fiction and spiritual storytelling, Dekker explores not only the tortured mind of a serial killer, but also looks into the heart of man who doesn't believe in God. With his usual suspenseful style, Dekker brings to life the horrible reality that only darkness reigns when a person chooses to believe in nothing.

"FBI agent Daniel Clark is completely assured of man's ability to use reason, logic, and intelligence to solve almost any crime. To him religion is a crutch based on half-truths and well-constructed myths, responsible for more violence than anything else. God is only a fable used to give hope; the Devil a scary bed-time story designed to keep people in line. In fact, his dogged pursuit of a serial killer calling himself "Eve" has done nothing but prove to him that religion can only be misused for dark, sinister purposes.Then, in an encounter with Eve himself, Daniel Clark is killed.

"After his resuscitation, Daniel is haunted by a dark form lurking just beyond his senses. Sure that his mind carries an imprint of Eve's identity, locked within the final moments of his death, Daniel embarks on a series of dangerous experiments to get a glimpse of the elusive shadow lurking in his mind. What he finds is a horrible truth: despite his beliefs, the spiritual does exist, and when one empties himself of God, he doesn't open his mind to rationality; he opens his heart to darkness.

"This is perhaps Dekker's best work to date; a well-written and researched novel that also has a clear, passionate message: if we do not serve God, we only serve evil. The device setting Adam apart is Dekker's method of getting inside the serial killer's mind. We rarely encounter the killer's perspective in the present, but throughout the novel Dekker details the killer's descent into insanity as a young man, while he struggles with an abusive past and his refusal to believe in God's existence, presented in the form of a crime-magazine series of articles. These articles display a depth of research, showing a sophisticated narrative that continues to prove Dekker's story-telling abilities."

It takes an obsessive mind to know one. And Daniel Clark knows the elusive killer he's been stalking.He's devoted every waking minute as a profiler to find the serial killer known only as Eve. He's pored over the crime scenes of sixteen young women who died mysterious deaths, all in underground basements or caverns. He's delved into the killer's head and puzzled over the twisted religious overtones of the killings. What Daniel can't possibly know is that he will be Eve's next victim. He will be the killer's first Adam. After sixteen hopeless months, the case takes a drastic turn on a very dark night when Daniel is shot and left for dead. Resuscitated after twenty minutes of clinical death, Daniel finds himself haunted by the experience. He knows he's seen the killer's face, but the trauma of dying has obscured the memory and left him with crushing panic attacks. Nothing--not even desperate, dangerous attempts to reexperience his own death--seems to bring him closer to finding the killer. Then Eve strikes again, much closer to home. And Daniel's obsession explodes into a battle for his life . . . his sanity . . . his very soul. Enter a world of death and near death that blurs the lines between fiction and reality in a way that will leave you stunned.
