It was an absolutely perfect day...until everything went absolutely perfectly wrong.

Kent Anthony is a brillant software engineer who is cashing in on a brilliant career. He's finally living the idyllic life, far from thoughts of theft and murder and other kinds of horrible criminal behavior.

He's left his past far behind...or so he thinks.

Ted Dekker delivers a fascinating story of the almost perfect crime, interwoven with a tale of bittersweet love that is almost enough to save a soul. A story that will bring you face-to-face with a hidden world more real than most people ever realizes; a world where the unseen is more powerful than anything seen.

Heaven's Wageris a Martyr's Song story spun from the events that happened at the end of World War II when a band of embittered soliders played a cruel game with a peaceful village. It was then, in the midst of chaos and pain that the Martyr's Song was first heard. It was then that the window into heaven was first opened.

Each of the Martyr's Song novels is independent and may be read in any order.
