An empty shell of a man now lived - if it could be called living - in the still-vacant house of his parents in a town with one stoplight. A town that hated him. Had always hated him. And was ready to pick up where the prison system had left off. Now he's on the run from men who've tried to kill him once; but Michael is more than an ex-con. A powerful, sinister force creeps inside him, threatening and destructive. Who - and what - it will destroy next is the only real question. From the bold voice that brought listeners down Purgatory Road comes a new pulse-pounding, spine-rattling tale of vengeance and justice that will have them up all night. Members Reviews: Chilling, disturbing, and riveting. Coldwater by Samuel Parker is an intense, gritty, emotionally-charged read. It definitely ainât your grandmotherâs Christian fiction. More on the lines of Peretti, Dekker, or Dellosso, this novel will stretch your view of sin, justice, and the spiritual implications of both. It is an excellent novel, but it will not be for everyone. Michael Sullian committed a horrible crime while just a child. The justice system didnât really know what to do with him, so he was sentenced to a super-max jail. Now 20 years later he has been released, but not everyone believes that justice has been served. Coldwater can be described as a supernatural thriller. There are lots of incidents that cannot be explained away by coincidence or natural phenomenon. The short chapters and Parkerâs writing style create a fast-paced narrative. The main character is very complex â he wrestles with guilt of his past crime and a fragile hope of a someday redemption. The other characters in the novel vary in their complexity â some being just what you see, while others are on a journey as fraught with danger as Michael. While the novel is action-packed, Michaelâs story unfolds slowly. Bits and pieces are revealed in such a way that kept this reader turning the pages to find out just what was going on. There are a number of spiritual themes in the book â justice vs. revenge, redemption vs. condemnation being just a few. There is a lot of demonic activity, yet God is never mentioned. Iâm not sure how I feel about that. On the one hand the novel is a strong statement on how human choice is the opening for sin. On the other, the release Michael receives hinges on forgiveness, but forgiveness by whom is the question. There are a lot of things left unsaid in Coldwater, leaving me feeling like there should have been more. But that may have been the aim of the author all along. This book certainly left me thinking of things I havenât thought before. There are certain elements of Michaelâs life following his crime that reminded me of Cainâs judgment by God. I donât want to go into specifics due to spoilers, but if you read Coldwater, make sure to go back and read Genesis chapter 4 as well. On the subject of sin, there is one quote that resonated with me â We gloss over our own sins, softening their edges, while assuming the sins of other are forever razor sharp and at the ready to slash our throats.
