Bride Collector

Book Description from CBD.com:
He loves them because they are beautiful. He kills them because he loves them.
A virtuoso killer is carving a path of death across the west, intent on killing only the most beautiful women, all in the name of love. He has claimed six victims and slipped through the FBI’s fingers, each time leaving behind a hand written note and a bridal veil.
Full of surprising wit and hair-raising twists that will keep you riveted to the end, The Bride Collector will haunt you with a new way of looking at beauty, love and the world in which you live.

The main characters are Brad Raines, FBI special agent; Paradise, a woman with schizophrenia living in a psychiatric institute; and the killer, of course.  This was a good suspense novel with a unique plot and interesting characters.
The Christian message was there (we are all God's favorite, but it could have been stronger.  There were times when non-believers, or even those new in the faith, could become confused with what is truth.  Overall, I liked this book and would recommend it to any suspense/mystery reader.  

Dekker will probably always be one of my favorites.  The Circle Trilogy is in my top five books of all time, and I am really looking forward to Forbidden, which he is writing with Tosca Lee (author of Havah and Demon: A Memoir) and is due out it September.
