New York Times bestselling author Gregg Olsen investigates the sensational story of a minister who seduced four of his female congregants, and hatched a cold-blooded plot to murder his wife.

On December 26, 1997, near the affluent community of Bainbridge Island off the coast of Seattle, a house went up in flames. In it was the shy, beloved minister's wife Dawn Hacheney. When the fire was extinguished, investigators found only her charred remains. Her husband Nick was visibly devastated by the loss. What investigators failed to note, however, was that Dawn's lungs didn't contain smoke. Was she dead before the fire began?

So begins this true crime story that's unlike any other. It investigates Nick Hacheney, a philandering minister who had been carrying on with several women in the months before and just after his wife's death. He would be convicted for the murder five years to the day after the crime.

From one of the foremost names in true crime, Twisted Faith is a gripping and truly unforgettable story of a man whose charisma and desire rocked an entire community.

From the Back Cover:

As seen on NBC's Dateline

His sin was adultery.

He counseled young couples at a small church in Bainbridge Island, Washington―and convinced young women that having sex with him was part of God's plan. But that wasn't the worst of Youth Pastor Nick Hacheney's unspeakable sins. The tragic house fire that ultimately consumed the life of his soft-spoken wife was no act of God...

His crime was murder.

What demons drove a highly respected minister to commit the most sinful of crimes? How did five women―including Hacheney's own mother-in-law―fall prey to his seductions? Combining firsthand confessions, erotically charged emails, and one woman's chilling prophecies, bestselling author Gregg Olsen paints a shocking portrait of a church, a community, and a man of the cloth who turned out to be a wolf in sheep's clothing...

Gregg Olsen's books are:

"Searing and brilliant."―Ann Rule

"Riveting and deeply disturbing...Olsen does a superior job."―Cleveland Plain Dealer
