Andrew Klavan in his new book “Crazy Dangerous” published by Thomas Nelson takes us into the life of Sam Hopkins.

From the back cover: Sam Hopkins is a good kid who has fallen in with the wrong crowd. Hanging around with car thieves and thugs, Sam knows it’s only a matter of time before he makes one bad decision too many and gets into real trouble.

But one day, Sam sees these thugs harassing an eccentric schoolmate named Jennifer. Finding the courage to face the bullies down, Sam loses a bad set of friends and acquires a very strange new one.

Because Jennifer is not just eccentric. To Sam, she seems downright crazy. She has terrifying hallucinations involving demons, the devil, and death. And here’s the really crazy part: Sam is beginning to suspect that these visions may actually be prophecies-prophecies of something terrible that’s going to happen very soon. Unless he can stop it.

With no one to believe him, with no one to help him, Sam is now all alone in a race against time. Finding the truth before disaster strikes is going to be both crazy and very, very dangerous.

I like the way “Crazy Dangerous” begins:  “You see that dead guy by the side of the road?  That’s me, Sam Hopkins.”  First person narrative and Sam lets you know that he is not really dead just badly beaten up.  However the book catapults from there.  “Crazy Dangerous” grabs you with the storyline and keeps you flipping pages as fast as possible.  This is a book with very interesting themes regarding demons, the devil and the role we play in the supernatural world.  Do right. Fear nothing is what Sam is told by Michael and runs throughout the book.  How Sam is able to deal with Jennifer and her visions and make it to the end is really quite suspenseful.  I liked this book a lot.
