AN OPEN HEART
Real-life surgeon and missionary Kraus masterfully delivers a twisting, edge-of-your-seat medical suspense tale on par with Robin Cook complemented by an equally gripping and heartfelt faith journey. It doesn’t get much better than this!
Embroiled in a high-profile scandal, American heart surgeon and former “missionary kid” Dr. Jace Rawlings flees to his boyhood home in Kijabe, Kenya, to start a desperately needed cardiac clinic, only to find he’s become a target of malevolent earthly — and perhaps spiritual — forces. As his patients emerge from deep anesthesia to deliver chilling warnings from beyond, Jace gradually begins to suspect good and evil are battling for his very soul. Tormented by terrifying dreams and inexplicable physical ailments, pursued by murderous henchmen and weighed down by his stubborn heart of stone, Jace realizes there’s only one direction to turn if he truly wants to be saved.
