Publisher's Summary

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.

    "Very poor narration"
    Would you be willing to try another one of Heath McClure’s performances?

    No


    Any additional comments?

    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.

    Story
    "The struggle was real"

    I finished it and still don't completely understand the plot. While I appreciate the christian aspect and the lack of vulgar language I would still like to have an attention getting plot that makes you not want to stop listening. It was highly based in the 1940's during the war so the story lines were intertwined. So for this to be billed as a legal thriller is totally off base.
    For me there is a lot of filler writing and no sustenance.

    I am not sure I will do another listen with this author or narrator.

    Story
    "Please fire Mr. McClure"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    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.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Heath McClure?

    Adam Verner! He makes Charles Martin's books an absolute pleasure.


    Any additional comments?

    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.

    "Very good book almost spoiled..."

    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.

    "Whitlow fan"

    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!

    "Engaging and truth in fiction"

    I am purchasing the hardback for my family to read. My 15 year old reads all types of Christian Fiction from Peretti to Jenkins. because of this reading habit, I have seen him gained so much insight into the spiritual life.

    Story
    "Why is this guy reading?"

    The story was good, but the reader/narrator was not. His voice inflections were unnatural. It was as if he was reading this in front of his junior high class and his teacher told him to use more voice inflection, so he did, but not at all in tune with what he was reading. I almost stopped listening several chapters in because of this, but the story had already gripped me enough that I simply had to grit my teeth and finish it.
