Called “the John Grisham of the Christian market” (Augusta Chronicle), best-selling author Robert Whitlow draws from extensive courtroom experience to deliver riveting legal thrillers. Defending teenaged runaway Jessie Whitewater against a shoplifting charge, new attorney Tami Taylor must determine why Jessie insists on lying to her—and why the teen is so terrified. But when the hand of evil strikes close to home, Tami finds herself gripped by the same fear.

Great story that captures your attention
This was a great book. Warning, it is a Christian book with Biblical themes. Don't get this book and complain about the Christian themes in it. For those of you who are believers, this book challenges your faith to believe if what God can speak, reveal and do ... yes, even today.
I love how Tammy clung to her faith throughout the whole book. She was also seeking God ' s approval for her life . She was a witness of light into a dark world . Tammy got respect from everyone because she did not compromised her faith she followed what the bible said and loved her Father God ..She was a great example of what our lives are suppose to be. I just got done reading all of Charles Martin books. I'm so happy audible suggested this aughor. I am so happy to find anther great authors .. ..
End of a good clean series. It ends predictably but the courageous preacher and Whitewater are are so engaging you care about their outcomes in the plot. The cut and paste background on the protagonist's family and farm from the first book could have been reworked and enhanced to discourage skimming. Mrs Fontemore and her Chihuahua remained a consistently admirable keystone in the plot. (I misspelled her name)
I normally like Robert Whitlow's books, but this one was hard to enjoy. It was cheesy and so predictable. I just think it's not one of his best.
I could give it to my teenage granddaughters to read to enjoy and
to see how we can live for Christ and still live in the world. Held
interest with story and a little mystery as well.
Yes. I found that it tied together all the loose ends of the series very well, showing the growth of Tami, Zack, Vince, Julie, and the rest.
She did a very good job with accents, inflection, and descrption.
As I have stated in my previous reviews of this series, I found this was more a character-driven spiritual journey than a legal thriller. I enjoyed the character development and the growing relationships between the characters, and this book did have more action than Greater Love.
I was disappointed in Tami's continual friendship with the whacky minister - for someone who had such grounding in Scripture, the idea of her going back on her word based on the cryptic words of this woman made my teeth clench in frustration. But all in all, this was a fitting end to the series! I would love to see a book 5-10 years in the future to see what happens to everyone... but categorizing these books as legal thrillers does lead one astray.
This was a story that held my interest, but also had my thinking about my own positions on the topics brought up surrounding the very conservative heroin of this story. A very good read.
