This story is true. The names of some individuals have been changed to protect their identities. Kevin Cross's life story involves all the trappings of greed, betrayal,
and the quest for happiness. People are all desperately grasping for
something better as they travel through life.
We buy the next big thing, or look to religion, celebrity, or sex to find some kind of satisfaction. Just when we think we’ve gotten hold of something and tighten our grip, it invariably slips through our fingers.
- Not Hokey!
It's a great story of how a "little bit of sin" turns into a lifestyle of sin. The author leads us through how sin will continue to grow and has a never ending appetite of desiring more. I appreciate his honesty in struggling with turning his life around
- Changed my life
I don't usually read too many Christian books (I like graphic novels), but I'd read the description of this one elsewhere (my church's bookstore) and it sounded good. I figured for 99¢, even if it was terrible, it wouldn't be any big loss.
I am the same age of the guy in the book and also graduated from high school early with a scholarship, so I was immediately hooked because he seemed just like me. I'd always thought my goal in life was to get a good education and make as much money as I can, but that's exactly what happened to Kevin and the book shows you that he was much happier when he wasn't rich and was helping people than when he had all that money. I can see myself doing the same things he did, so I'm so glad I read this book when I did. It really made me think twice about the kind of life I want to lead.
I highly recommend reading it even if you just want a good thriller.
- What a blessing!
I put this on my ipod to listen to when I'm running. Let me tell you, I must have run two marathons because I didn't want to stop! When I got home, I sat on my couch and listened until the end because I couldn't wait to hear the ending! To see what God did in this man's life is an inspiration and the book is so captivating! Thank you Kevin, for helping me see what's important.

- Riviting redemption story!
Reads like a Grisham, but I had to keep reminding myself it was all true. Wow, what an awesome God we have.
