walking on water

"Water Walker" by Ted Dekker is the second book in the Outlaw Series.  "Eyes Wide Open" being the first which I have already read and reviewed.  The two books do not need to be read in order and are written in completely different styles.  Where in Eyes, I was never really sure what was going on and that added to the excitement; in Walker, I am aware and that also adds to the excitement.  The two books share characters but are not the main characters in the other book. 
In Walker, Alice is kidnapped by a man claiming to be her father.  He takes her to the compound where he lives with his wife, son, and prophet.  The "Christian" cult is portrayed as a bunch of kooks and an opportunist/scam artist.  However, the reader should keep in mind this is a Christian novel and at the same time a Dekker, so things are not always as they seem.  I loved this book.  I liked it better than the first. Dekker is a hit or miss with me and this is definitely a hit.  I received this book for free from Worthy Publishing.
