Young lawyer Parker House is on the rise - until his grandfather's mysterious past puts both of their lives in danger.
Parker House's secret inheritance is either his greatest blessing or his deadliest curse. The fresh-faced North Carolina attorney shares his German grandfather's uncanny ability to see future events in his mind's eye - a gift that has haunted 82-year-old Frank House through decades of trying to erase a murderous wartime past.
While Parker navigates the intrigue and politics of small-town courtroom law, Frank is forced to face his darkest regrets. Then a big career break for Parker collides with a new love he longs to nurture and the nightmares his grandfather can no longer escape. Sudden peril threatens to shatter not only Parker's legal prospects but also his life and the lives of those dearest to him.
Two witnesses, two paths, an uncertain future.

I like all of Whitlow's books, and this is such a good story. This was another narration by Heath McClure which makes me think he knows someone to be given the narration. His reading is so affected and sing-song that it makes it annoying to listen to the book. Please, please get someone else to read Whitlow's books. I do not think I will endure another one by him.
If it was read by someone who had a clue about sentence parsing, intonation, pauses at obvious plot-line breaks, I'd absolutely recommend this book.
This is at least the 2nd Robert Whitlow book we have ENDURED with Mr. McClure as the narrator. Hire Adam Verner! He makes Charles Martin's books an absolute pleasure.

This was a good book. Not his best, but, apart for the narrator issues, a good story, backed by decent characters and a flowing storyline, despite many flashbacks. If you're not into hearing atrocities Hitler's thugs inflicted, then skip this one. Some are quite disturbing, even for baby-boomer era listeners.
I have enjoyed each book by this author but felt the story was weaker than his other books! I did really enjoy the amount of scriptures quoted plus the gospel presentation! That alone made it a good read ! The moderator was disappointing and distracted from the story!
Whitlow is an excellent author and I have read everything he has in print. This was my first experience with an audio version of one of his novels. The reader had a nice voice, however his "sing-song" pattern of reading everything with the same inflection, made it hard for me to stay awake! I almost gave up several times. Even so, I am a long-time fan of Whitlow and am writing this review hoping that he will find a different reader for his next novel.
I enjoyed this book. Love the characters. Good story. Love the incorporation of the message in around the good story.
