The first woman he ever loved is dead, and Evan Wade is compelled by demons of his own to discover her murderer. As this gripping tale of suspense unfolds, Wade comes to understand his own role in the crime, and the hunter comes to be hunted by the very murderer he seeks. In the chilling climax, Wade finds out more than he ever wants to know about himself, and that knowledge changes him forever. Set against the backdrop of one of the great social and moral controversies of our time, Untimely Ripped explores the relations between parents and their children, born and unborn, loved and abandoned. Yet, however serious and thought-provoking, the novel will delight as much by its uproariously funny scenes as its somber ones. For it tells not only a deeply moving, tragic tale of love and death but a heart-warming and comic story of love, life, and birth.
