3 Gates of the Dead (The 3 Gates of the Dead #1) by Jonathan Ryan

Sometimes, the most evil things come from the most holy…

Conflicted with his faith in God and the hypocrisy of the church, Aidan Schaeffer, a young assistant pastor, is in a constant state of spiritual turmoil. When Aidan learns that his ex-fiancée is the first victim in a string of ritualistic killings, he finds himself in the middle of an even deeper fight. Tormented by demonic threats and haunted by spirits, Aidan throws himself into investigating Amanda’s death; all the while supernatural forces have begun to attack the people around him. The more questions he asks, the more he is drawn into the world of a mysterious Anglican priest, a paranormal investigation group and a rogue female detective investigating the murders. As the gruesome rituals escalate, ancient hidden secrets and an evil long buried threaten to rip Aidan’s world apart.

I loved the cover and the creepy atmosphere.
Pastor Aidan Schaeffer has suffered a loss. A loss of his parents, his fiancée and his faith. Not long after his ex fiancée leaves him for another pastor she is brutally murdered in a ritualistic killing.
The killer may be someone very close to Aiden.
I really enjoyed the first half of this book, when whispered disembodied voices and footprints with no visible owner appeared. Towards the middle when it got more into the investigation, theology and biblical quotes it did not hold my interest as well.
I received a complimentary copy for review.
