Christy Award winner Robert Whitlow’s legal thrillers draw favorable comparisons to the works of best-selling author John Grisham. Here, Tammy Taylor, a young law student working for a firm in Savannah, becomes immersed in a deadly conspiracy. After Tammy learns dark secrets about her client, her continuing investigation uncovers sinister truths about her superiors as well.

“Whitlow’s deep faith and legal skills shine.” (Terri Blackstock)
Love the storyline. Combines an old fashioned simple charm with some mystery and mild suspense. I really enjoy the character development and ethical questions raised. Narrator is good but in some areas distracting with the tone of her voice. Not my fav but most my least fav either.
The voice of the reader did not match the personality of the main character. I couldn't get past the pitch and tone of the voice to hear the story. There was no "white space" in the reading, no time to process. Words were moving too fast.
Yes. I would like to give the author another chance. I am considering the last book which has a different reader
I'm sorry and disappointed. I like to read books within a series, but not with this reader.
I read this book looking for a legal thriller, which is not quite what I received; the main character is a law student, and most of the book takes place around a law firm, but most of the development is character-based. While I do not agree with all of Tami's religious convictions, I enjoyed seeing her stretch and grow as she lives apart from her parents and comes across other Christians that do not always agree with her. I was quite surprised seeing her spend so much time alone with Vince, which seemed quite uncharacteristic for someone of her background, which is really the only consistent part of this book. It was gratifying to have a mystery element without blood and gore and guts, and how perceptions can colour innocent comments into something much bigger than they are. I look forward to reading the rest of this series to see how Tami, Vince, Zach, Julie and the others grow.

Clearly, this book was written for the Christian literature audience.
It was dull, stilted, and the main character was very shallow.
Not sure how to improve the performance when you're working with such a limited book.
It was so dull and disappointing that I could not make it through the entire book.
Please fix Audible sales page for this book to clearly indicate that this is Christian literature and not to be confused with a thriller.
This is one of the more enjoyable books I've listened to in a while. The plot and characters make sense, the dialog is believable, and the story kept my attention without being too intense. The book was also well read.
I would compare this book to any by Dee Henderson.
Whitlow has developed an enjoyable plot with interesting characters. The story includes humor and seriousness, conflict and resolution, and a Christian framework without coming off as preachy.
From the description Audible provided for this book, I expected a John Grisham- type novel. Instead I received a book that appears to be written for deeply religious adolescent girls. Compared to this book's angelic main character and her loving family, Nancy Drew was a juvenile delinquent being raised by neglectful parents.
I want my money back! This book should be listed as a Christian novel written for adolescents--and for heaven's sake, get rid of the reference to John Grisham novels.
