Book Review: Possession
Tyndale House Publisher
In the aftermath of investigating the D.C. sniper case, police detective Vance Graegan is burned out on life and love. Hoping to save his marriage, he quits the force and moves his wife and son to the other side of the country. But when the movers decide to hold his belongings for ransom, Vance is determined to ensure that his family’s new beginning is not ruined. Soon, though, losing his possessions becomes the least of his problems as everything they are fighting for begins to unravel in the hands of Vance’s past. In an unforgettable climax, a little boy’s innocent faith brings a group of desperate people to their knees. What is at stake counts for everything, but nothing can prepare Vance for who is behind it.
My brother had an issue with movers several years ago, and I remember his difficulties in dealing with movers that had lost his belongings, so I was totally able to relate to the moving problem in this story! Can you imagine having all of your belongings held hostage? This book leads to the question, "how important are our possessions?" what would YOU give for your possessions, and when you compare that to your family, what would you do to keep them safe?
It's bad enough to be threatened by movers, but when things begin to become sinister you wonder how this family will survive their current situation much less the one haunting Vance Graegan from his past, are they connected in some way? Although this book is full of turmoil, death and despair young Connor has a deep love for God that his mom just can't understand, will his faith help keep the family strong, or is it too late?
This is a great book full of drama and faith and what it can do for tortured souls
