Thr3e is a 2003 suspense novel written by thriller author Ted Dekker.
The protagonist is Kevin Parson, a twenty
year-old seminary student who one day receives a unique call on his cell phone while driving. The man on the other end identifies himself as Slater, and tells Kevin that he has precisely three minutes to confess his sin to the world or his car will explode. What follows is a cat and mouse game with Kevin, his childhood friend Samantha Sheer, and FBI
agent Jennifer Peters struggling to keep up with the clues Slater sends their way; clues that lead to the most horrific events. Throughout all of this, Kevin, Slater, and Samantha find that they are connected more closely than any of them would have imagined.
