What if your niece had been brutally murdered by a serial killer? The only way Ruth Warner can get any peace at all is by praying for Harry Silver, the famous race-car driver turned killer. At least he’s behind bars…until he escapes.
Ruth stops at a convenience store on her way home from prayer meeting only to muddle into a robbery in progress. Before she realizes what’s happened, she’s kidnapped and in Harry Silver’s grasp. He’s furious that she interrupted him—he’d pegging the young cashier as his next victim and had no intention of grabbing the plump middle-aged woman. When she admits she’s been praying for him for several years, he tells her calling on God now won’t do her a bit of good. It hadn’t helped his last victim any. Ruth’s niece.
Can Ruth’s faith sustain her to the end, whatever the cost?

While the reader is chewing nails, worrying about Ruth’s safety, Sketchley takes us deep into Silver’s mind. How can a man who once knew the height of fame, who was once a “good” man, become a depraved killer? Does God’s love pursue him? Is there any hope of restoration for one who stooped so low?
