    "Delivers"

    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.

    "The Trial"

    A moderately interesting start of a criminal trial. After entrapping the reader with the plot, it then reveals itself as a Christian religious book.

    "Not my cup of tea"

    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.

    "Not enough story and too much God"

    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.

    "'Christian' courtroom drama"

    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.
