The Keeper, by T. F. Allen

I’ve never read a book like this before.

I don’t even know what to call it. Thriller? Mystery? Supernatural / Paranormal?

Um…. yes.

I may not know what to call it, but I sure couldn’t put it down. Here’s the gist, from

Angel, spirit, or ghost–the Keeper doesn’t know exactly what he is. But he knows he needs to protect Michael Delacroix, a famous artist who is kidnapped and locked in a windowless room deep beneath a Napa Valley vineyard.

Desperate to save the only person who knows he exists, the Keeper uses his abilities to convince two strong-willed women to search for Michael: a reporter who thinks her visions are signs from the Universe, and a nun who swears she hears the voice of God. …

This story is narrated in first-person, from The Keeper’s point of view. But since he can also enter people’s minds, we sometimes know what other characters are thinking.

What makes this story a Great Weekend Read is the over-the-top creativity of the story line. I’ll even forgive Allen for my elevated pulse and blood pressure as the two women raced to rescue Michael. I mean, they had no idea what they were dealing with.

If you like thrills and shivers with a strangely satisfying ending, I highly recommend The Keeper.
