Reviews - What do our customers think?
Do not be thrown off by the beginning chapters of this very deep, insightful, honest book. The main character Wendi, is a pastor's daughter and the wife of a very successful surgeon. She's lived on a stage and behind a mask all of her life as a "Professional Christian," her real feelings didn't matter in the life she lived.

I thought it was fascinating how the author describes this FAKE Christian life Wendi's learned to life. It's a mask she's worn to hide her true identity. It was scary believable. Wendi's mission in life was to "Look Good" and "Please people." It's very important her real feelings didn't show on stage or in public. In the beginning when Wendi's planning to leave her husband and run off with her "Christian" piano teacher, don't get all freaked out. This author leaves clues within the events of the beginning chapters; pay attention...he uses those details through out the story. Harry Krauss keeps you on the end of your seat and masterfully unfolds this incredible story of the human heart and our relationship with Jesus.

Think of the beginning of this cutting edge and suspenseful story, like you're starting off in a roller coaster; it goes slow, your excitement builds and you wonder what direction the ride will go next, and then you wonder if you made a mistake in getting on this ride when all of a sudden the ride takes you over the edge and there is no return. Keep reading. This is a well-crafted, detailed account that deals with the matters of our heart! The bible says what comes out of our mouths and our actions shows what's inside the heart. It isn't pretty. Harry Kraus is very insightful and does a great job of driving home the point that we are not meant to live PERFECT lives. That's why we need Jesus. The author helps describe grace and how that works in real life. Harry shows the reader how we can apply the free gift of grace to our every day life? Read Perfect, it's a powerful, gripping, suspenseful murder mystery with surprises unfolding until the end. I can't wait to read Harry Krauss's new book Six Liter Club next.

A Perfect Book  Mar 29, 2010
I could not put this book down from the moment I picked it up. I love how Dr. Kraus writes about things everyone can relate to: doubt, fear, guilt, love, loss, and hope. It's a thriller with twists and turns. You don't want to miss out on reading this one! Perfect book when you need some action, but don't want to get off the couch.
Harry is Good As Usual  Jan 8, 2009
This may not be Harry Kraus' best book, nevertheless it weaves characters in and out and makes it easy to follow them. It is a "fluffy" story but has good moral questions and allows you to get insight of the lives of the characters and how they deal with the consequences. It's always hard to make "right decisions". Medically based books are high on my list and not everyone enjoys them as much as I do. Check out Dr. Kraus' other titles for good reads.
Nothing is as perfect as it seems  Dec 3, 2008
Wendy Stratford wants out of what she calls her "perfect plastic" life. She's tired of her perfect blond hair, her perfectly successful, surgeon husband, and her perfect Christian life. She wants a chance to have a real life, so she devises a plan to carry on an affair in Jamaica with her piano teacher, Chris.

All is going as planned until Chris ends up in a horrible automobile accident. As a skilled accident reconstructionist, Wendi begins to detect inconsistencies in the accident report. Something is wrong. The "accident" begins to look like Chris was hit on purpose. Wendi is determined to find out what really happened but as she investigates people begin to die.

At first, I wanted to paint Wendi with the bored and neglected wife brush and sweep her aside. I felt a bit annoyed with Wendi for the first part of the story. When she began to rebel against her morals with a devil-may-care attitude, I was certain she was having a midlife crises set in motion by a faith crisis that she blamed on her husband. Even though her husband wasn't perfect, I didn't feel he was entirely the blame for her restlessness.

Then Wendi's personal story begins to unravel, revealing the pain and guilt she carried since her teen years due to an unwise choice which had embarrassing and life-altering consequences. Her mother's actions to preserve the family's perfect Christian image by covering up the mistake only cemented Wendi's need to be perfect by any means. It is then that Wendi's heartache and desperation to find her true self, her true identity is revealed. I felt bad judging and sweeping her aside merely on her wayward actions. Boy did I forget that deep-seated pain often motivates people to do things I can't understand. Isn't that where prayer instead of prejudice comes into play?

Perfect asks the question: how far will people go to atone for guilt? This story is full of deceit, guilt, cover-up, and revenge which magnify our need for forgiveness and grace.
The reader will be drawn into the storyline as the plot unfolds. At first you think you know where the story is going until Kraus throws the reader for a loop with an unexpected twist. Once the suspense tightens, Kraus does not let go until the final page is turned.
Comical  Nov 13, 2008
While this book held my interest, the best word I can think of to describe it is "farce." It was quite humorous. The author had the main character more expert in sleuthing than the detectives. Accidents and not-so accidents abound and people were dropping off like flies. I supposed the book to be about forgiveness and grace and while it was in there, it was more of "who done it?" and "why?" Very little to do with the former.
