I love Robert Whitlow's books, and this is his best ... so far! Since I live in the South, I am familiar with some of the locations he uses in his books. He is an expert at weaving together a Christian message and an exciting and believable legal drama. I love that he made his main character, Tom Crane, a strong, confident attorney but at the same time he was a Southern gentleman with manners! I definitely recommend this book!
Intriguing couldn't put it down the best from writer to narrator. The writing the best The narrators dialects enhanced the entire experience The Best
I enjoyed it for the religious content and the suspense too. It ranks near the top.
No. At least in the print version, I wouldn't have to hear the voice of the narrator.
It beats you over the head with religion. It got in the way of the storyline. I am a Christian but the storyline of this book was quite thin.
Anybody who was really from the South. The fake Southern voice was quite irritating. So much so that I actually searched to see where Joseph Collins from from. I couldn't find anything on him so I suspect that rather than being a voice actor, he was someone connected to the writer who faked, quite terribly, a Southern accent.. it was especially annoying to hear the fake combination British/Southern accent.
I wouldn't even consider making a film of this book.
I began the book quite baffled at how it was connected to the series. Come to find out, it has ZERO-ZILCH-NADA affiliation. None whatsoever. When I finally overcame my confusion, the book turned out to be a good story. However, the book sounded like it was narrated by Forest Gump. Seriously!

Not really. Story was just okay and narrator was not good.
During dialogue portions of the book, he sounded like a kid learning to read and sound out words. Didn't sound natural.
Not really. Characters were not interesting enough for me to care about what else happens to them.
This is shown as the 4th book in The Tides of Truth series. I'm not sure why. None of the characters appeared in the other 3 books. It had absolutely nothing in common with the others, except that it was a Christian book. There was no continuity with the others.If you buy it expecting to see what else is happening in the lives of the characters from the previous books, as is the usual case in a series, you will be very disappointed. I usually like Robert Whitlow's books, but this one just doesn't measure up.
