Then suddenly the phone rings, and it turns out to be a case he can't refuse. A case for the life of accused killer Peter Thomason, and a case for his own soul.
With a style reminiscent of John Grisham and Frank Peretti, Robert Whitlow has mastered the art of legal suspense novels. The book edition has earned the prestigious Christy Award.

"Exciting courtroom drama and an authentic Southern sensibility." (Publishers Weekly)
Whitlow does a great job developing the characters and their relationships with one another throughout his novel. There was enough suspense and romance to keep my attention. I liked the tender ending. Just a reminder for those who had problems with the Scriptural content and religious influence…the book is listed in the “religious/Christianity” section of audible.
Having started the story with the actual book, when we started listening to this performance, it was quickly apparent that much of the actual book was edited out of the performance. We liked the performer's voice and performance of what was not edited, but we're irritated by having some of what the author thought was necessary cut. We continued to listen sometimes and stop and fill in the spots that were skipped with the book. Sometimes I just read from the book and fast forwarded when it was after dark and we were in the car, but the hole, sometimes whole scenes and sometimes a half or a full page were annoying.
At the top of my list!
This story was all memorable. I felt I was there. I did not find out that this story was based on a true historical person and account until AFTER I finished. This made the story more incredible!
Rob Lamont gave a beautiful performance. Each character was powerful.
At times this books graphics descriptions were almost to much. But I had to keep going to the end. The story is that good!
A moderately interesting start of a criminal trial. After entrapping the reader with the plot, it then reveals itself as a Christian religious book.
The book was not what I expected -- it contained far too many religious references and characters were uninteresting. Perhaps I should have read other customer reviews more carefully.
The story is ok but not enough for 6 hours. The last hour is boring since the book is more about cristian salvation than about the story. Too much God and too little story.
I wish I had read the description more carefully before buying this audiobook: this is a 'Christian' legal thriller, meaning that the story contains an abundance of completely unnecessary proselytizing that ruined any interest I might have had in it. If Jesus is your Saviour, then rejoice, this book is for you.
