Fleeing assailants through alleyways in Denver late one night, Thomas Hunter narrowly escapes to the roof of an industrial building. Then a silent bullet from the night clips his head and his world goes black.

Now Thomas wakes from a deep sleep, remembering the vivid dream he just had of being chased. Incredibly real. His head is even bleeding – but he's fallen on a rock. He's in a green forest, waiting to meet Rachelle, the woman he's falling madly in love with.

That night, Thomas tumbles into bed and falls into a fitful sleep. He dreams. But here comes the real mind bender. Every time Thomas falls asleep in one reality, he awakes in the other. He truly no longer knows which reality is real. Each reality has dramatic impact on the other, each proves to be real, each presents huge stakes, and the fate of each will depend on one man: Thomas Hunter.

This groundbreaking trilogy will be the fiction publishing event of 2004. Black is unleashed in February, followed by Red this May, and concluding with White in September 2004. Each new Dekker book has surpassed the prior one...but never before has he created such an unforgettable multi-layered epic as Black, Red, and White.

I don't know what was worse - the simplistic writing or the narrator. Gave up and returned the book half way into the 3rd cd.

I enjoyed listening to this book. It is suspenseful and thought provoking. It is an enjoyable read...but the ending leaves you hanging. You'll be looking for book 2.
