A thriller unlike any you have ever read. A love strong enough to bring a tremor to your bones. A sacrifice powerful enough to make heaven weep.

At the close of World War II, a shell-shocked solider, Jan Jovic, was forced to inflict a game of life and death on a peaceful Bosnian community. In a few short hours, this young man was confronted by more love—and hate—than most experience in a lifetime.

Years later, Jan has become a world-renowned writer with widespread influence in the United States, his past buried deep in his memory. Until, at the most inopportune time, the game Jan witnessed comes back to haunt him . . . and unwittingly leads him to a beautiful broken woman caught in an underworld of crime.

Jan must now defeat an evil rarely seen. But there is a price. One that even this war-scarred solider can't imagine.

Praise for When Heaven Weeps:

"Ted Dekker is one of the most remarkable creative writers of our time . . . engrossing and spiritually inspiring . . . highly recommended!" —Bill Bright, founder and president, Campus Crusade for Christ International

"When Heaven Weeps is a first in Christian fiction: a bold, knock-your-socks off, four-hankie, romantic supernatural thriller. And a brilliantly written one to boot. Hang on for something brand new." —Mark Olsen, screenwriter and bestselling author of Hadassah
