New York Times bestselling author Gregg Olsen investigates the sensational  story of a minister who seduced four of his female congregants, and hatched a cold-blooded plot to murder his wife. On December 26, 1997, near the affluent community of Bainbridge Island off the coast of Seattle, a house went up in flames. In it was the shy, beloved minister's wife Dawn Hacheney. When the fire was extinguished, investigators found only her charred remains. Her husband Nick was visibly devastated by the loss. What investigators failed to note, however, was that Dawn's lungs didn't contain smoke. Was she dead before the fire began?So begins this true crime story that's unlike any other. It investigates Nick Hacheney, a philandering minister who had been carrying on with several women in the months before and just after his wife's death. He would be convicted for the murder five years to the day after the crime.From one of the foremost names in true crime, Twisted Faith is a gripping and truly unforgettable story of a man whose charisma and desire rocked an entire community.

Christians aren't perfect, just forgiven, so get off your high horse and if you don't have any sins don't cast stones. True , it's sad and disgraceful when, pastors, priests, cops, and politicians commit despicable crimes, but we are all human after all.

Another "Christians aren't who they say they are" or "Christians Gone Wrong" story. I loved it. We all know people who say they are a Christian, but it never shows in what they say or do. This story is about this exact thing. The hypocritical lives of some folk who portray themselves at church as devout and God-loving people but their secret lives eventually betray them. The road to that end is a twisty fun one to read. Thanks Gregg
