Why do bad things happen to good people?
How does one continue to praise God when all is taken away?
Everything he owned . . . gone.
Everyone he loved . . . dead.
His health . . . fading away.
Something is after him . . . an evil . . .

An Evil by Thomas Brittendahl

An EvilPrepare to cede control of your mind to the dark world of Thomas Brittendahl’s An Evil. An evil what, you ask? Ahh, that is the mystery and something to think about.

Paul Bellomy, a respected and well-liked spiritual leader, author and senior pastor at the Riverwood Church is living the good life, wealthy, with a loving family, is life is, to pardon the phrase, Heaven on Earth, until it became Hell on Earth and a living nightmare. Although always trying to practice what he preached and trying to instill these same values on his family, somewhere along the line, he became the “as needed” interpreter of his teachings, using Bible phrases instead of his own heart and words to guide and raise his family. Has he become the very thing he preaches against? Has he lost sight of his own human failings in order to control those around him? Seriously, have you ever tried to have absolute control over a young adult spreading their wings?

When life takes a sharp downward turn, Paul realizes he may be losing his grip on his very soul, as he does things without remembering, throws his family into chaos and discovers what a living Hell is.

Has Thomas Brittendahl taken us on a trip through the Twilight Zone? With bold strokes, Mr. Brittendahl tells his horrific tale quickly with a chaotic feel that adds to the high tension and mystery throughout. Very dark, very thought-provoking and very entertaining! Might I suggest reading this on a dark and stormy night by flashlight after a power outage, just to feel the full effect?
