They Shall See God by Athol Dickson

If an author is going to come up with original ideas, than it will be Athol Dickson.
They Shall See God starts with a convicted criminal being released from prison after serving a long sentence. Than it moves to a scene in which a Jewish rabbi dies from food poisoning. Than it finally gets to the main character and her family as a mysterious intruder lurks in her house one night.
While there are several other seemingly unnecessary scenes that seem to have no connection to the main plot, just bear with them. It will all make sense in the end.
The characters are flawed and believable. The romantic subplot is interesting and ends in an original way.
Some people don't seem to understand the deep meaning behind this book. It goes much deeper than suspense. It goes to the heart of the reader. Once the reader begins to understand everything, this book becomes a masterpiece.
The only problem I can think of is the odd execution of the plot. But as I said, everything is explained in the end.
Just keep reading this one through to the end.
4.5 stars
