SKIN, by Ted Dekker

I’m ashamed to say that I’ve let the release of one of the best books EVER almost sneak up on me without writing a review. What am I thinking? I don’t know. I read the book a couple of months ago, loved it, and waited to review it until closer to the release date.

Well, here we are. SKIN is now at a bookseller near you. Hopefully, you’ve already heard all about it. Here’s a little about the book:

A freak storm has spawned three tornadoes that are bearing down on the town of Summerville.

Yet under the cover of the storm looms a much more ominous threat: A vindictive killer known as Red who's left a string of victims in his wake and is now bent on exacting his final revenge on the unsuspecting town.

But there is an enigma surrounding Red that the FBI is unwilling to admit--closely guarded secrets of something gone terribly wrong beneath the skin of Summerville. Secrets that will destroy far more than one small town.

Wendy Davidson is caught in the middle. A recovering cult survivor who takes refuge in Summerville on her way to visit her estranged mother. And with her, four strangers, any one of whom could be the next victim...

...or the killer.

Ted has really done it this time. I said in my SAINT review that I thought it was Ted's best book ever. I think I’m going to have to revise that opinion, though it’s a close call. SKIN speaks of what real beauty is and isn't. It's also a gruesome cat-and-mouse story that will thrill you until the very last page.

Interested? Of course you are. Now go out and buy it!


  1. Oh man. Do I HAVE to buy it? Do I really want another Ted Dekker book cluttering up my bookshelf? His books already fill the entire top shelf. I may need to buy an exclusive Ted Dekker Bookshelf to house his books. Someone needs to design one. You know, Read Ted emblazoned across the top, the Circle emblem down the sides, specially marked spaces for each book. Could be a real seller.

  2. I love the bookshelf idea. I think I'd order one. :)
    I'm in the midst of reading Skin right now, and I'm loving it! I love Ted Dekker's books, and if you say it's better than Saint, it must be incredible! :)
