about this item

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 other's life. Now he's a priest incensed by the powerful among us who manipulate the law for their own gain, uncaring of thes hattered lives they leave behind. It is his duty to show them the error of their ways, even if he must put them in the grave.

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.

The last thing Renee Gilmore remembers is being rescued by a pair of unknown arms after her drug-dealer boyfriend attempts to murder her. She wakes up in a beautiful glass house surrounded by doctors and the man that saved her life, Lamont Myers. Lamont offers her protection, if she abides by his rules. Among these; she must not leave the house, making her the bird in his gilded cage.

Danny Hansen is a Bosnian immigrant who came to America to escape the bloodshed of his country and the memories of his own involvement. Danny is a priest who lives by a strict moral code, one which values the loving of others above all else. It is those that pretend to abide by religious and legal law but intentionally harm others that insence Danny. And he believes it is duty to show them the error of their ways. Those few that admit and renounce their behavior are forgiven and set free, but never without a severe reminder of their wrongdoings. Those that refuse to admit to their behavior are killed.

A year after Renee is rescued by Lamont he is murdered and she vows to seek revenge. At the same time, Danny has continued to carve a swath of judgement and punishment.

In their individual pursuits, Danny and Renee's paths become entangled and before long it is clear that neither of them may make it out of this hunt alive.

DeKker does it again...

Ted DeKker does it again. This book keeps you flipping the pages from start to finish. The only fault I could find is that the book ends. This is a story I could keep reading, if fact as soon as I was done I started reading it again. I have given copies to friends and they are hooked also. This is a...see moreof the reviewer's review

An emotional rollercoaster

Ted Dekker has done it again! He has taken two characters from very different walks of life and brought them together in a tale that is fast-paced and exciting. Somehow he is able to delve into the deepest, darkest depths of the human psyche. So much, in fact, that everything Danny and Renee struggl...see moreof the reviewer's review

The Priests Graveyard has touched me in a way few books have. It has reminded me why I want to be a writer. I dont feel this way just because of the storys vivid characters, intense plot, and surprising twists that only Dekker can create. And its also not just because I found myself laughing out lou...see moreof the reviewer's review

Masterpiece

5 out of 5 stars
AwesomeNiks 7 years ago
Ted Dekker has done it once again! This is a tale of epic proportions that shows us that there is more than meets the eye and questions your very sense of what truly is right and wrong? In this riveting and heart-wrenching (and sometimes quite gut-wrenching as well) story, readers are taught never t...see moreof the reviewer's review

Different is one word to describe this book. It is not like most Dekker novels yet, it is. I loved Renee and Lamontuntil I learned the truth of Lamont, that is. I loved Danny, the priest. This book is different in the graphicness as one of my friends put it, but not in a way that I would stop readin...see moreof the reviewer's review

You should really read this book when you have a decent amount of time on your hands so you can give it the appreciation it deserves and devour it in one or two sittings. The second you pick it up, you won't want to put it down. Humor mixed with wide eyed, edge of your seat action and situations tha...see moreof the reviewer's review

Dekker has woven a tale of love so deep and haunting that it will plague your mind days after finishing. Youll stay on the edge of your seat from the very first chapter to the last, waiting for the resolve. Yet the resolve is nothing that you would expect or perhaps it is. For if you look deep enoug...see moreof the reviewer's review
