Veritas Project: Hangman's Curse

I am a Youth Services Librarian. I have always enjoyed Peretti's work. This title is no exception. It is a very good story for middle and high school. The Vertias Group, Mom, Dad, and twins, Elisha and Elijah are undercover looking for the truth of strange happenings. Their job, should they decide to accept, is to discover the real truth. Well written, speaks well about school campus life and gets the reader involved int the plot. Football jocks are attacked by a strange disease and before the reason is found two girls have died. What and who are responsible? You will enjoy the suspense and truth from start of finish. Looking for excellent reading with high interest? This book will fill that need.

Frank lives up to his reputation

If you love Christian suspense, or even if you don't, you will after you read this. Twins Elijah and Elisha and their parents make up a highly secret investigative team. The family goes all over the country to find "not only the Facts, but the Truth behind the Facts." In a small Washington town, a highschool's star athletes are coming down with a mysterious illness that leaves them insane. The Springfield family is sent to investigate, finding a mysterious ghost, a second class system, and witchcraft surrounding them. They soon realizes that there is the Baker High that everyone chooses to see, and the second Baker High where people are harrassed, abused, bullied, stolen from, and made fun of every day. What measures will people go to to stop it? Enough to murder? I loved this eerie book! Not one section was boring, I was hooked to every page! The only problem is that I have to wait till the next book comes out...

Hangman's Curse : The Veritas Project

Frank has come full-circle and delivered a book that is compelling. This book can be read by young people and adults alike. Many young people will see themselves in the characters and champion the side of truth. Adults will be awakened from a sense that all is well within the system. This is one that you will not want to put down. I hope Frank keeps on track with sequels to The Veritas Project.
