The Canary List by Sigmund Brouwer

"Protected by the dark of night, Jaimie Piper runs. But is anywhere safe when Evil is hunting you?
She’s just a twelve year-old girl, bumped around between foster homes and relegated to school classes for challenged kids, those lagging in their test scores or with behavioral issues. But her real problem is that she can sense something the other kids can’t—something dark. Something compelling her to run for her life.
All Crockett Grey wants is to mark the anniversary of his daughter’s death alone.
But when his student Jaimie comes to him, terrified, her need for protection collides with his grief, and a tangled web of bizarre events sends them both spiraling toward destruction.

Crockett’s one hope of getting his life back is to uncover the mysterious secrets of Jaimie’s past and her strange gift. It isn’t long before his discoveries lead him to a darker conspiracy, secrets guarded by the highest seat of power in the world—the Vatican."
~~ synopsis from Goodreads

Wow! This book grabbed me from the start. The prologue is pretty intense and I just had to keep reading. The story has a fast pace and was very easy to get into. There are a lot of twists and turns and you just want everything to come out ok, especially for the 'good guys'. I found myself really liking the good guys. 

Some people might be offended by the Catholic church references but you know what, that stuff was in the news and this is just a story. But it does make one wonder, how much truth is in fiction? hmmmm

I always like to figure out how the title fits into the story and in this case, you don't find out what the canary list means until almost the end of the book. Ahhhh, I get it now!

This is a very well written, enthralling story.
