In the darkness, what do you fear? Author Paul Fay, in Forest of Fears, tells the story of Zachary Wylie who has a successful career ahead of him; admired by his peers and the staff alike, he is being primed to be the Chief Surgical Resident at a large hospital. Hurtled into the throes of tragedy, he finds himself enduring one of the greatest of human fears.
Through contact with a Christian nurse and Dr. Pascal Mutamaya, an African-born and American-trained trauma surgeon, Zach accepts an undertaking to help free Dr. Ben Wells, an American physician who has spent most of his adult life caring for the poor in the Belgium Congo. Mentor and father to Dr. Mutamaya, an urgent situation occurs when news arrives that Dr. Ben has been taken captive by an African rebel force lead by a scourge of Central Congo whom they call le Diable--the Devil. Forest of Fears follows the journey of Zack, Pascal, and Angela, the young nurse, as they are thrown together into the mystery, radiance and vast energy of Africa. In their search for Ben develops a chronicle of intrigue, terror, war, demonic forces, and love through which Zack finds good reigns over evil through God's sustained presence.
