T.L. Hines makes me think of Ted Dekker in the way he writes. Faces in the Fire is an intriguing, a bit bizarre story about four individuals who are connected an unordinary way, by a catfish and a napkin with numbers written on it.

Kurt is a withdrawn introverted truck driver who sculps but has no idea who or what he really is; Corinne is an email spammer with cancer who considers herself a bottom-feeder and invisible; Gracie is a runaway wife and mother who ran because she believes she has dead blood and worthless; then there's Stan, an assassin who does not want to be one but doesn't think he has any choice. These four are intertwined, although their story is each told seperately. Their stories are stories of restoration and good triumphing over evil with lots of twists and turns.

I enjoyed the book but I'm not sure everyone would due to the unusual way of story telling. For me it is one that was hard to put down because you just want to know where it is going and what the outcome will be.
