About The Canary List
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.

My initial take on The Canary List was that it would be the usual "troubled people finding themselves and healing through one another" type reads. Don't get me wrong, I love books with that common trend, but with The Canary List I was pleasantly surprised. The political aspect mixed in with the overall creepy feel kept me guessing and rooting for our characters. It didn't overpower with the Christian message, in fact, I felt it was a tiny bit...
I don't want to give anything away about The Canary List. It was intriguing and methodical. The story centers around the collision of two lives on very different paths, but equally bothered by a dark and real problem. Wrapped around that of a compelling Vatcian conspiracy, this story is best read in the day time. It will leave you wonderfully chilled!
For those who enjoy supernatural thrillers, The Canary List by Sigmund Brouwer is a good one. A twelve year old girl can sense the evil in the world, and when she runs to her teacher - a father grieving the death of his own daughter - for help, a conspiracy as dark as the pit is uncovered!
This is one of the best books I have read in awhile. The material interesting and is good for anyone who loves a good suspense and mystery novel. You were kept on the edge of your seat the whole time not knowing what was going to happen. You never knew who was involved and you were constantly trying to figure it out. I would recommend it for anyone.
After reading the Prologue of The Canary List I found myself disinterested. This was a book I was throughly looking forward to, however, it did not seem as awesome as I thought it would be. Around Chapter 4 I realized that although I was still skeptical I could not stop reading. This book has sucked me in, big time! Around Chapter 13 I kept wondering.. how many more plots will be added to this story? And why isn't it annoying me instead of...
